Default Thanks for tire info

Adrian and Roy
Thanks, you guys for the tire info.I will have to get some new tires and compound.Where do you buy your tires from , i have looked at ( amainhobbies) and ( towerhobbies) . Tower has more of a selection of bsr and jaco , or should i buy from the manufacturers.
Cheers Mick

Jaco has Purple and pink tires so you could do those(check part numbers on jaco site).
BSR i don't know.
Didn't use them yet
Other brands depends on where you live and if your lhs has them.
Corally TC5 and Speetech tire fluids are the one i use.
You can also use tire warmers on them so the traction fluid gets faster in the tires( i do on some tracks).

Regards Roy

My car won't stop traction rolling. What can I do to stop it. I have tried softer then harder side and center springs. My setup is stock. I race on low traction carpet. The car is fast and handles great, but when I push it a little it goes up on 2 wheels. Ride height is 4.5mm

What is your tire diameter? Traction rolling is a problem if I run my tires any bigger than 54mm (2.12"). My track is high grip so I usually start my tires at 53mm (2.08").

The kit side springs (gold) are really stiff. Most guys are running Black, Green or Silver side springs. If your car is lifting the inside rear tire go to a softer spring. I recommend just running the black side springs.

The kit center spring is really stiff too. Try an Associated Blue center spring and 27.5wt oil.

I also switched to the .020" front springs with just a touch of droop. They steer well but wont let the front collapse like the .018's.

What tires are you running? Jaco's make the car narrower in front. This makes the car dig and steer harder. I run 3 axle shims per side when I run Jaco's to smooth out the car.

Hope this helps...

Thanks. I am running Jaco's at 53mm. And I had black side blue center. I will try shimming out the front and the .20 springs. It lifts front and rear tires haha.

You could run a lighter damper tube lube....around 10K.

You could try less caster...1.8deg.

How long are you saucing your tires? I do it for 5 min or less depending on grip levels.

Are your tires square or rounded? I round my tires a ton. They have no vertical side wall at all.

I have never tried it but you could try the wider front suspension mounting points. That may kill your steering and cause a push though.

Default 10.5 boosted rollout

We run 10.5 boosted WGT10 in the Uk. I run a reedy sonic motor at around 54 to 56mm depending on the track.
I also use an LRP Flow esc. HTH.

Thank you, I'll note this. Seems like some people are running around 65mm too. Not sure on their electronics...

Default Best car and power package on the planet

Below is my WGT10 with reedy motor and cell .Lrp Flow and Rcdynamics Booster. The best package in WGT10.Tyres are Spec tyres LILAC from RC4LESS Usa tyres but think only available in the Uk for some reason. Probably 80=90% of racers use these wheels and tyres.

If I run a Trinity revtech 10.5 in boosted run that at 62mm rollout seems to like higher gearing. But in the main I run the Reedy Sonic 10.5 in boosted and the reedy Sonic mach 2 13.5 in blinky .

I have broke the button head crew that holds the right front axle in the plastic hub twice. the last time it only took about 15 minutes. Has anyone ever had this problem or any idea how to fix it.

I need some help. On your car you have the 4 aluminum standoffs that hold the center shock mount up (#8535) and in the rear some shorter standoffs (#4699). Does anyone happen to have handy a set of calipers and can roughly measure these for me?

They SHOULD be 17mm if they're the same standoffs as the 12R5.1 lipo conversion
