All we have local is Treadz, 42's No 40's Thought about trying 37 & 35 front...... would this work?

Also what is the differance between the front and rear foams?? Both are 26mm

TIA
first of all, front 40sh is different from rear 40sh!

I am currently using 40sh front with 45sh rear tires and most of the ppl call me crazy but it works good for me! I have notice using such combo on my car's set up gives me much more steering responds expecially doing those tight hairpins, S-curve(hard left then hard right). Tire wear seems really good! a set of front 40sh last me at least 4 weekends of hard running!

4 weekends!!! thats a lot!!!! How much fuel are you getting through??? I worked out that I can managed about 2 litres of fuel for fronts and 1 litre for rears...both 40sh. That equates to about 26 and 13 tanks of fuel...or 2 weekends for front and 1 weekend for rear!!!

Each weekend I run about 8 to 10 tanks, so about 750cc or so! also the track that I am running has very high traction too and it kind of save tires!

Ah10: Thanks for the info!! I just ordered some more tires. 37 & 40 shore fronts and 42 shore rears. Like you I like a harder rear compound. I do not like a tight rear for my style of "driving"

Thanks again

haha...you have the same opinion as well....I normally send CC in but his in France!!!!!

Don't like the place because we went in once and asked for the price of a KO 2001 servo...first time he said $450.....we did a usual round of MK and then went back to buy (well KY was buying)...he then came back with a price of $500...saying that he did not say $450 before hand!!!!! there was 4 of us, 4 pairs of ears....and we are all deaf!!???!!!!

No theories.....but it will lock if your left wheel spins fast enough. Normally this will not happen when running the car because the normal action of the diff will not generate enough speed for it to lock. However, if you put a drill to one of the outdrivers it will lock!!

Its all about how quickly you can spin that plate the clutch shoes mount on! whether it be via the rotation of the entire unit or the rotation generated with the differential action.

PS. don't try the drill trick....chances are the gears cannot cope with that speed!!!!
