I have good luck with Contact tires, run on nitro and 1/12 with great traction and long wear (unless the boards move).

I will have to order some of these rc4less tires, great price, dig the color

I guess I'm going to grab a handful of pinions to get me in the 50 to 60mm rollout range and actually run the car checking temps to fine tune.
There are a few phone apps for roll out as well
I use RC Ratio
You can even save data, chart for different spur sizes, car models, etc...

Trying to get it built on this rainy weekend but I'm almost there- at least the rolling chassis.... A couple observations:
The new skool front end looks so simple and so clever at the same time. Makes me kinda scratch my head looking at all the parts I need for my crc front end lol.

The kit doesn't come with bolts to attach wheels to rear hubs. What size or part number do I need?

I'm using regular speed merchant 4-40 ball ends for the steering turnbuckles and I read in this thread that I need 2 1/4" turnbuckles but I measure 3 inches from center of chassis to ball joints on the steering blocks... Should I get 2 1/2" turnbuckles instead?

You can use any 4-40 x 3/8" cap screw to secure the wheels. And yes use 2 1/4" turnbuckles.

Where do these guys from Speedmerchant want you to drive this Pro10 chassis??
That is way to small for an outdoor track and besides that you would want to run 48p spurs outside...

At Joost......With that spur they want you to drive it at that track that is mentioned in the 235MM pro10 car section but then in meters
88 64DP with a 10.5 boosted on an outdoor track will last well like erhmmmmmm like not long

ok i get the 48P versus 64P argument for outdoor racing, but what's wrong with 88t? Isnt it just a matter of pinion:spur ratio?

1. Feels like i'm in....
