Front way on the RR is excellent compared to the tiny thng on the tc3. Have built the front end already. Just have to get some rubber cement tommorrow for the brake pads, or do you have any other suggestion on glue for the pads.
For the brake pads i didnt use anything when i built my brothers and mine and hes had no drama and same with me but if you want just use smeare of shoe goo!

Jeremy

i think in a way its best to use nothin makes it easer to remove them when replacing!

For the brakes, I just built mine per instructions and before I installed the side pulley, I chucked the two speed shaft to a cordless drill and spun the shaft w/ brakes applied. It was easier than sanding and It worked great.

Yep I have heard the same things up here too. The MTX3 is straight up dialled from the box no doubt. But if you make some mods to the V1R it will also go just as well in my opinion.

The new closer coiled springs are great and the MTX3 rear uprights really help.

A couple of the guys down here have tried them and reckon they couldn't get them up to temp. or something.
Getting foams up to temp? Thats a new one for me.

Anyhow I really like them. They seem to offer superior lateral grip to the FAST tires on a shore for shore basis. Also in my opinion they seem to let go far more gradually. The other great thing is that the foam dust is far far less your car stays much cleaner

Only negative point is the shore ratings jump in 5s not 2 and 3s.

Agreed. I believe this likely reflects their experience with rubbers more than the quality of the Enneti's.

OK, what I was trying to ascertain is wheather the use of different origin of foam is an issue in terms of consistancy of grip/wear.

Using GRP tyres as the benchmark, we find the Active tyres more stable, better wearing and more consistant and predictable in terms of handling. I'm sure the stiffer rim contributes to this, though the down side is that they can break in a decent hit and you need to take steps to minimise chunking. The shore ratings, set to set, appear to be within a decent tolerance and they're available in the "in between" shore's, but they're not cheap.

It seems to me that the Zac's are very similar to the Active's (both Japanese rubber) but with a more flexible rim.
I guess I'm wondering if you might have compared the Enneti's to Zac's?

I must admit I don't really know the ins and outs of foam tires and origin of foam etc.

I just know what I like and I like the feel of the Enneti. I have only ever used the FAST before them so I cannot give you much more than that.

OK, thanks. I am no expert either - just seemed that the different foam origins may have had something to do with it. We are in a similar boat - have used Active tyres 97% of the time and only a few sets of GRP's.


Maybe Corse-R can shed some light, here. Enneti's seem to be more prevelent in Europe.
