Normally multi-ring tires will last a little bit longer than non multi-ring. Also the shore will be a little higher, due to the glue on the multi-ring. You should have more grip with non multi-ring tires!

Multirings do last longer but they also provide more grip. The reason being you can run a shore lower than normal due to the lower wear rate.

in general multirings are far superior to normal tires. problem is not many people can get hold of them. best thing to do is buy foam donuts and make your own. try mixing shores and run a shore higher on the outside.

Default multi ring

Fastone I'm with you,Multi ring longer wear slightly less grip. No such thing as a free lunch,never seen a trade off of better wear AND better grip.

Which track in holland do you race at? My personal experience of European tracks (nearly 20yrs) has shown that Multirings are the best tire to use. It possible that they dont work as well on painted out parking areas etc compared to the purpose laid tracks in Europe.

I have seen several of the dutch tracks. Mach, amca, and a couple of others. We are planning a trip over at some stage. I have loads of 1:8th Multirings but find it hard to get 200mm versions. I usually buy foam donuts and make up my own 3 ring multishores.

shock measure?

Leaving of I begin it that the shock absorbers must have a measure which are the measure that I put in my shock absorbers, since the manual nothing relates, (for measure understands length of the shock absorbers)

I'm not sure that I understand the question but here's a pic and some info.
The size that I think is about right is between 66.5mm to 67mm measured from the top to the bottom, make sure that all your plastic is uniform. The way that I understand it what's really important is that the rear are a set and front shocks are a set. Should be long enough not to get in the way of your the rebound stops.

If anyone has better info please jump in.............

Default shocks

yes make sure that after you set the droop(with the shocks removed) that the shocks should compress a little to screw them on. if you have to lift the arms to mount the shocks you have to lenghtened them. make sure they are equal lenght right and left
