Clete,

Sometimes a car will need to be run with different shores from front to back for even balance & wear. They can also even out rubber temps on all four corners. Once you figure what works on you track, your slicks will last you twice as long and your car will be more fun to drive & race.

thanks Jeff....
I know troy found some of your tires to test... we all are stoked to see the fatties on the back... we have a fantastic track... it is a little abbrassive... but none the less, fantastic. I would still like to find a little more mechanical grip... it will come with time.. Now that the weather is warm.. we can make changes and really make some headway.. I want to try the to find a little more on power steering..

I agree with jspeed, sometimes different shores help a lot in leveling grip front to back so tires last longer.

I use RC8FT brake pads and they work perfectly. You do have to use the dremel but it is worth it. It doesn't needs pads so you can use the metal "pads". They last a long time as well with no fading due to heat.

36659 is not Discontinued. Some suppliers may have discontinued stocking that item.
