I think you will probably have better luck using a softer tire in back. Try running 37 or 35 in back. 45 should be good up front, but maybe 42 is you need extra grip upfront. You should be fine with 2 to 2.5 toe in for the rear.

your setup should have something wrong if your tire shore has more then 5' difference. ideal setup is same shore rate front and back if your setup is good.

haha...I'll take that as a compliment....I'm running 40s front and rear now!!!!

Have you tried the Arrows tires yet? they appear to be a different compound to the Fast and Ellegis we have been use to!

This is were you get into diff tunning to dial out traction at one end of the car and get traction at the other end. what are you running in your diffs to get that close to ideal diff action.

I ran Arrows for about 2 years. They seem alittle harder then the FAST and SPRINT tyres but don't chunk as easily. Arrow 45s up front used to last me months!!! - just got sick of gluing and truing...

I see the extra reinforcing in the arm, but is there an advantage in the derlin vs the stock plastic?

the advantage of derlin is more robust to crash and less chance for deform. but they are expensive

Does anyone know how to rotate the high speed needle brass housing on a novarossi carb ? (the housing, not the needle)
I want to rotate it so it's alinging with the carb opening. Thanks.

u cant possibly do that...all u can do is to rotate the position of the carb. the alignment of the nipple on the high speed housing can be adjusted by loosening the high speed brass housing.
