More questions...

In the past, people have stated that the ideal tire sizes for the RRR were 62 rear / 60 front. Are you saying that 60/58 is faster? Also, are you using a ride height of 6 rear / 5 front with the 60/58?

Thanks

Congatulation to you Robert M. even by reading those report from Mike and others the competition was tough, stress and yet fun. Thank you for the W/nats setup too. Did notice you used solid setup out front and i never try that yet but Robert, what should i consider if i should use oneway or solid for a track and if i use solid what are the significant setup changes that i should make compared to oneway setup? Probably i should try to feel the different..

Thas not correct......... I ran some quals this week with 59/57 car felt pretty fast....that ride height sounds about right once you setup your car with some small tires you should not have to adjust your ride height for the main...just add your larger tires for the long main and the height of the tires will raise the ride height...always set the car up with qualifying tires...meaning small ones.....

None just try the solid with the same setup and see how it reacts you might be pleasantly surprised...if the car lacks something after the change just adjust car accordingly...

hope this helps....

Thanks a lot you guys for your opinions. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer. I did sense a lot of honesty which will make it much easier for me to decide...

And Rainer,, thanks again for a great website!! I hope you got my thread in the engines forum . I'll defenitely do the manual comparison between the MTX-4 and RRR Evo WC.

Thanks Robert i need to try this and if necessary set it accordingly from there. Other than this i still have issues with the stock break pad and wonder if anybody here tested the APP break pad, abit expensive but is it worth to try - durability wise.?

I am using the APP break pads and disk and you are right, they are expensive but they work very well. They take a few laps to warm-up but after that they are very consistant.
