Car comes with 37 shores from stock. Nitro shoes should be fine if you do small adjustments to the setup (no wonder 2 different tyres react to the same).

I have a forthcoming race on a REAL abrassive surface and planned to use some ZAC project tyres to cope with the brutal rear tyre wear (manti told me some dirty tricks that I need to try). Anyone has enough feedback with those tyres (specially when is related to a even F/R tyre wear)?

question guys how much toe-in you guys run on the rear? is it more toe-in make the car hard to drive nor easy to drive?

how about camber is it more camber make more traction nor less traction? how much do you guys put on the front and how much on the rear?

thanks

the more rear toe-in the more better into/out of turns, but too much (>3 degree) will slow down in stra8 line speed and an unstable rear...
Usually, foam tyres set-up is 1-2 degree front and 3-4 degree in the rear. Too much camber will cause the car to run wide in a tight turn.
Hope this help...

Jason, could u kindly give me the parts no. for the mentioned Mugen Pro Spacer and Kawahara Wheel Hex that had 1mm offset?

about the foams 2 degree offset tires are nice they will make you life easy

but they are not totally necessary you can use the mugen pro spacer behind the wheel hex and use any 30mm rear and 26mm front

i believe kawahara also makes wheel hexs that add the 1mm needed to run any wheel

ellegi, enneti, nitro shoes, mugen fast tires, and probably a couple others i missed will fit

personally i run the mugen fast tires on the mtx3 wheels so i know i will never have a problem

i believe if your looking at tire descriptions and it says dtm mousse in the description that wheel has the necessary offset this applies to all tires made by GRP

Default Engine setting for Race

I would like to know what are you guys do to your engine setup
for a 45min final? I normally are quite satisfied with my engine setting for a 10mins heat BUT will find my engine stalled during a
final normally after the 2nd tank. It is the setuop for 1-2 tanks
and a final which last 45mins are two different setup?
could you kindly point out whether I should set the low needle
slightly rich or should I leave it alone or should I rich the top needle?

It seems that I could get a good setup for 1-2 tanks but are struggling to make my engine last for a 45mins Main...((

For a 45 minute final, you don't need to change your carb adjustment if it's OK. But seems by the symptoms you say that aren't so good. One very common problem is leaning the low-end too much and this don't leaves much refrigeration to the engine (you don't say anything about this).

For a 45 minute finals I enrichen my engines about 1/16 of turn and lean it as need during the finals (you need to rely on your mechanic during this finals, is a matter of faith).

Be sure to clean your engine before putting another time giving some throttle pulls to prevent flameouts.

i used to experience engine flameouts with my RB X12 3port turbo...the low end was set too lean (for more power) and during a 20 min main, there's no way to restart the engine within 2-3 min. as the carb was too hot/overheated...
i have a Rody Tuned 5 port now and set the low to about 3 turns out and 5 1/2 out from close which is a little rich to prevent overheating on the carb and engine while still producing reasonable power.
You can tell if the low end is set too lean when touching on the carb (carb body underneath the high speed nedle) after few flying laps on the track...if carb is so hot that you cant even touch it for 2 sec., that means you should richen the low end needle ...

just my 2 cents..
