Ok, that being said, can anyone tell me what most people cut their 2-stages to?

I start mine off at 59mm for practice. Once the smallest one reaches 57.5mm, I true the rest of the set and save them for qualifiers and mains (start the run at 56.5mm). In my own experience, they seem to lose grip below 56.25mm. But keep in mind that my setups have very little mechanical grip and rely on the tires for most of the traction.

EDIT: Doh! Just realized that this was the Mike Blackstock thread and not the Jaco one.

Sorry Mike. Jimbo, you may want to post this in the Jaco thread for more opinions.

Mike what do you think of running a outdoor setup and using higher spring rate springs for carpet? Medium traction track.
