It will get there eventually......maybe!!

The RR comes with 35 sh foams these are very soft and only good for certain tracks (with no grip!).....I just use the original foams for taking pictures. Get some 42 or 40 sh foams if you are running on a track. Expect to junk 1 set in a day....if you make it to the A-mains!!

This is a real difficult one because there are too many variables...temperature, type of track, track surface conditions (not all Asphalt are the same!)...best to find out from other people running on the surface!

Running solid axle rear and a locked front diff. The 35mm foams can fit on the rear with the wide universals and hex.

I'm headed out the door for the races so we will see how the RR's track debut goes.
well thanks for the pics, tell me how your race went
