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)?
We use "Active" tyres as do approx 50% of the local guys, though quite a number run ZAC's. Their performance seem very similar, though I prefer the stiffer rim on the Active's.
I understand both Active and ZAC use the same Japanese rubber.

We've found that tyre wear is about 30% better than GRP rubber and would expect the ZAC's to be similar.
The shore ratings seem to work a bit differently and we usually run the same shore front and rear, say 40 / 40 on a track with decent traction. Wear from F/R is quite consistant, using a one-way and rear diff. This is on a V-One-R.
Hope this is of some help.

Where is everyone getting the Kawahara blade rear swaybar, and is it stiff enough? I currently have the 3-racing which I have heard/read isn't stiff enough. I want the adjustability of a blade. Thanks

Default Front Diff

HAve you guys tried the front diff for the MTX-3 yet??

What are the parts required for building the front diff?
Some of guys at track are running the car with front diff and they complain that it leaks, what are the things i need to do to prevent it from leaking??
lastly, if i were to use say 10k diff oil in the rear, do i run a higher rating diff oil in the front or the same?

thanks

Hehehe.... seems that you started to have some quite serious brakes...

This is the same problem that almost all of us faced previously. With the normal 'Ferodo' brakes, you have too much stopping power (friction coefficient) between the disk and the pads basically due to the density of the pad (don't stretches nor compresses). Teflon (Yellow pads) are more plastic and can adapt to the rotor surface and transform some of the power applied by the servo into brake pad deformation (plasticity of materials).

In few words, the plasticity and elasticity of the yellow brake pads gives you less stopping power and much more progresivity. Used almost from the start on the MTX3 because found the brakes very poor on progresivity.

What's your rubber setup? How do you like it compared to the foams?

Thanks,
