Al-I am not sure what the upcoming weekend holds. My 1/8th scale still has a wheel tire issue. The car has 20mm hexes and most others have 17mm hexes, but I am working on that. The other problem is that I have not purchased any tires or foam yet. If I only had enough money for one set of tires and foam, what would I buy? M2 Crime fighters?????????? or something else????? Experienced 1/8th scalers could chime in.....Thanks..........
Ben - a good universal tire is the M2 crimefighter... works almost everywhere. When you can, pick up a set of Panther C-compound switches. They'll work at McCulloughs when the track starts to get damp.
I also think I have an extra set of 17mm hexes if you think they'll fit on your buggy.
Ben - the stock Proline foam works well, but as you probably know it breaks down very quickly. Trinity foam works well. I like the medium stuff, some guys prefer the firm. Either works, just a matter of prefrence.
I haven't been able to find any place locally that stocks Panthers, so I've been ordering them online. www.amainhobbies.com has really good prices on Panthers and ships lightning fast. You'll get them in 2-3 days. Hopefully Doug will start carrying them this summer. The new c-compound is really good... it's like pink, but just a touch softer.
I have a wedding to go to next weekend (23rd) so I won't be there... I'm sure that I'll catch up with you soon enough. Bring that Dietz character with you... I hear he has a big nasty 1/8 scale too!
