What's the difference between the B series of tires. The only one available at the lhs is a set of b3. A bit pricey I just wanted to try out 2 pcs. first but there aren't any. Are they close to 36-40r sorex?

Another good run with the TA05 today. Still struggling to find the pace I want with the one-way installed. I'm just consistently faster with the diff up front. I believe its probably just the track condition not having enough traction to support the running of a one-way with rubber tires.

I'm considering trying the front spool as CIVIC91 does. He went pretty fast with it today.

I tried a spool Saturday, I switched from a one-way. The car did faster times all through the run with Tamiya B3`s and blue inserts. The car Wasn't as fast into the corners , but it carried way more speed through and out of the corner. The only thing I don't like is the wheel nuts keep trying to back off, even with loctite!

do you guys find that the spool puts a lot of stress on the universals? after a while the pins show wear, and the shaft doesn't spin as "true" ...

Well CIVIC has just started using his, but it seems to be a fact of life that one of the prices you pay for using a spool is increased wear. So I don't see why the Tamiya spool would be any different.

But someone who has used one for a long time might be able to answer better.

Yeah, CIVIC had the same problem...not sure how to fix it other than buying a brand new set of wheel nuts AND loctiting them.

Use lots of anti-wear grease.................they will still wear out though.

I say use aftermarket universals for club races , and save the real thing for TCS.

I replaced my used wheel nuts with new nuts for the main and they didn't back off any...so I guess the others were just too worn.

I really like the spool so far. If you alter your setup slightly you can get some of that entry turn in back. It took me a pack or 2 to get used to the slightly different line required, but then it was all good from there. It is a worthwhile part and you can pick them up from Rc Champ for like $12!

Yes I know about the set up changes necessary to get more turn in. Adding Anti-squat , more rear droop and a spring change would help out..........I like the Tamiya spool. You could never wear out those steel drives!
