2.5 should be enough to get even wear on the fronts and have good steering.

Check the decimal place silly man! That is point 5. I was getting coning at 1.5 so decreased. There was no change in traction and tires were now wearing evenly. This was with the double purple fronts and double pink rears. So I just had to try the Exceeds. They are slightly softer. I ran 2 packs on those and noticed no noticeable wear. The car was still great. The Roadkill is so stable it might just be the pinnacle of pan car racing. I'm seriously considering picking up one for outdoor and one for a wet weather car. I know I need to take this setup to an outdoor track. Daydreams of a vacation to Holland and Germany aren't far behind.

Good advice Roy. John is trying other compounds/companies to see what works. I appreciate the feedback he's been providing on foams! Helps the rest of us from having to buy numerous sets to test. Thanks John!

I'm going to start with the xx purple fronts, purple rears and see how they work for me. Also have a set of pink rears to try.

Liljohn??

Some one else poited this out already
Told, "me bad" for the mistake.
For your "vacation" to Holland or Germany, wait till summer next year as the outdoor season is comming to a end
If you want to run on our outdoor 1:8 nitro tracks, you need more MAH to get the run time we have in Holland.
We are using between 4400 and 5000MAH in a 7 min heat(depends on track)
In Germany it is 5 min for mod and believe the same for 10.5 blinky
In the blinky class you will take it to the end with a shorty if the track isn't to big.

Regards Roy

I have great things to say about this body. I love the downforce. Turn in is superb. Attitude correction at speed is insane. And, this is without side dams. I have a second one fit and 2 more to paint. I don't have the part number handy, but these are Protoform and still in production and really easy to get a hold of.

1st: lower pod plate in 3.18mm 7075-T6 aluminum, same layout as factory L2 piece just thicker and considerably higher quality aluminum, will provide better heat dissipation for the motor along with adding strength and rigidity to the rear pod.
-10 of these will be made to start. I'm keeping @ least 3 and I'm setting 1 more aside for THEBIGBULL if he wants it.

2nd: upper pod plate in 2mm carbon fiber, designed for use with side shocks or dampers, also designed for easier motor solder tab access.
-12 of these will be made to start. I'm keeping @ least 4 and I'm setting 1 more aside for THEBIGBULL if he wants it.

3rd: lower pod plate in 2.5mm carbon fiber, will basically be a replica of the PRC carbon fiber lower pod plate, including the notch to allow larger spur gears.
-4 of these will be made, probably no more. I'm keeping 1 and setting aside however many THEBIGBULL wants, he asked me to have them made.

The 1st run of prototype aluminum lower pod plates should be done in 1-2 weeks maybe less. Then I'll try to have the prototype upper plates done asap after that. I'm modifying the stock upper plate in the meantime to test placement of the side shocks mounting holes before production. When each run is done I'll post in this thread with pics, prices, quantity available. Let me know if your interested in any of it, I'll reserve plates for you. No obligation if you don't like the finished work of course. I'm not a doing this for money just to help out myself and other racers in the process.
I'm interested in all 3 pieces. If the carbon fiber lower pod plate is a very limited run then, the other 2 pieces will be just fine.
Thanks Roy

You are forgiven.

Bruce had said all testing completed, the brick (square) packs showed best results. So I'm running the Hobbyking Ultimate 6400 brick pack forward, electronics behind. I can run about 30 minutes so far, but turbo isn't even kicking in. I need a hundred meter straight!

Here is link to the P905B pictured with the side dams:

THEBIGBULL sent me a trace of the side dams, I'll bring it with next time I head to the track. I know I gotta at least try 'em, even though I agree this body works GREAT as is.

I deleted mine to clean it up as much as I could lol.

How thick of carbon did they use? If it's thin enough that would be easy to work with and look really nice.
