What 1/8th Truggy tire & compond seems to be hooking up best on this track?
Thanks, Combat Chuck

The word on the street is there will be no Erevo/Emaxx division next season at Downriver. :cry: No E-revo division...no Combat Chuck. :? The dirt guys at Washtenaw have been real cool in letting me run my Garbage Truck ERevo against their truggies. Hopefully it will be the same at Dirtburners. I still like carpet racing, however I am a Monster Truck racer, so I will race where both my E-revo's are welcome. ~Combat Chuck

Thanks Nick. I'm going to try my Panther Gators (soft) because it's all I got besides carpet tires. I ran the Panthers last time at Washtenaw & they were OK. I will buy some new tires as soon as I find what will hook on the track with my E-revo. I need every advantage I can get to hang with you truggy racers. BTW...how's that HB Ve8 handle against 8's & RC8's? It's lighter with the composite chassis right? Later, Combat Chuck

myself and other truggy guys have tried just about every tire out at DB's and blue sevens with aka firm foam seem to work the best in terms of traction when the track is wet or dry. Aka grind irons soft or super soft are a good alternative when the track is really dry, but they wear way too fast for my liking. Panther switches are good too


So far I like the Ve8 I'm still running the original car I bought 9 month's ago. the car's popularity is picking up there is 5 us of running the car just at DB's. as far weight goes it's actually heavier than most of the electric 8th scales my car weighted in at 3680g with a hardcase 4s and secondary brake servo.

Raptors should be more consistent.

Switch 2.0s should turn more faster lap times.

Most indoor tracks in the midwest use theses tires more often with AKA inserts.

Thanks guys. I had fun running Short Course yesterday. The track is a lot different than what I'm used to and my Carpet set-up on my spec slash does not work on dusty clay. The smoking buggy was the highlight of the night for me. EXIT...where's the exit??? HA! Also I was a little disappointed there was no Truggy division on Tuesday. I'll see you guys next week. Combat Chuck

when i ran truggy i used to use the original monster truck switches mounted on truggy wheels..this is done by cutting about a 1/4 inch of the sidewall off the tire then mounting with trinity truggy foams...i have a set already made id sell cheap...

I hope Combat Chuck plans to race at DB Tuesdays a lot. Love racing with you Chuck.

I have all the gear to get my new Jammin SCRT10 going for next Tuesday. I'm sure I'll need to work out the kinks but most are saying the stock set-up is a great starting point. I did pop for the Novak HV4.5 motor so we'll see how the Havoc 3s works with that. I'll be the first I think and Novak states that this combo works without an external BEC.

See you all next Tuesday.
