anyone tried Ride rubbers b4? just got myself a set of RJ43, will try them out soon......hope they will be good.
any of u used a temp probe to measure track temp b4? my fren has been pestering me to share one with him.

heard from my LHS that the Kyosho V1R LSD is to be mounted on the front, is that true?

damn, so many hopups to get but so little cash.......hehe
MTX2 5 star top deck, Kawahara Negative Diff.....yum yum! with those my Pro Spec will become a PRO Pro Spec.

I've heard of people running softer tires in the rear...but with that small difference, are there really significant enhancement in performance? I mean, wouldn't it be more consistent if u run 42 all round?

Happy Racing...

Agree. A Front/Rear suspension balance car should have run same tire over front and rear.

Kenji Osaka run 37 front + rear when he won the WC title at our track. Most of us tourers use 45 fronts and 40/37/35 rears.

Intresting point though

I guess when you guys run that series of combination, you are thinking of getting a higher grip in the rear with a softer compound. But don't you think it'll be better for you to use the same combo, in your case, 42 Fast tires all round to have a better grip to your front and subsequently improve on your on-power steering?

I'm not too sure about this but other than F1 and drag racing, most touring 1:1 cars use the same compound all round for more consistency...

That was just a thought, what do you guys think?

i though about that point then went and tried it. the car handled alot differently, seemed to either oversteer or spin out on a hard corner.

i use 45 front and 40 or 37 rears. this combination seems to work alot better.

The end of the car that has harder tires, stiffer diff, and/or stiffer springs generally will have less traction. The setup all depends how you want the car to handle and how its balanced. I have a car that have the same compound tires front and rear + 2 step stiffer rear springs than the front + a stiffer rear diff. It runs fine. The car's stock setup has terrible push.

I ran Sorex 36R's at Norrca nats. With a 30 min. main, I ran 122 laps, and believe it or not, the tires looked as if they had 5 min. on them. Car was very easy to drive the entire run and consitant. V-one-R is dailed.

nitro dave,

No, they are not Integy brand. They are from Five Star, Square, and Kawahara which I believe are all Japanese brands.

Thanks

I run Yokomo Medium Sprints with Medium inserts here in the San Francisco Bay Area. They work at the local tracks I race at (DELTA RC in Antioch, CA and CASTLE Hobbies RCCAR in San Jose, CA). They are cheap, work well with the temp ranges here, and work well on both these tracks which are both asphalt and are sprayed with either Rootbeer (DELTA RC) or VHT (CASTLE HOBBIES). My car is really dialed in with these tires, plus I run the Kyosho LSD in the rear as well.

By the way anyone try running the Kyosho LSD in the front or even tried running the LSD in both the front and rear at the same time?

As a side note TOWER HOBBIES will have available by late October both the KYOSHO LSD and KYOSHO ACTIVE ADJUSTABLE DIFFERENTIAL for sale. Here are the links to those parts pages on their webite:

LSD: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...m?Q=1&I=LXAVW8

Active Adj Diff: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...m?Q=1&I=LXAVW0

and as a side not they will also have a cooling fan for the V-ONE R just like they do for the KYOSHO FW-04 here is the part page:
