I came across some old nitro tubing I had sitting around. The tube is to large. The wing wire is very loose fitting.

They make different sizes. Why does it have to be for nitro? Anyone try antenna tubing instead?

Won't fit my friend. To small of hole for the wire to slide into.

Correct Jeff and thanks. Also rollout makes a difference as well. This has to do with your Foam tires or wheel diameter. I won't get all technical since it really can't be changed much considering you can't cut down your tires much more to increase take off nor add rubber for more top speed. Everyone is basically on the same level playing field. It all comes down to the drivers driving skills actually.

While you all are on the topic of rollout. I'll fess up the new tires are a little bigger than my Sheps. First chance J and I get I'll be changing my punch setting. With the tires being larger in diameter I know my take off will be slower. We'll have to see I haven't ran it since we put on the new rims and tires.

I think someone in another thread was asking about this to. Maybe Elfie or ? Not sure. When I changed over from the old to the new there wasn't a difference. I didn't retune anything. Leave it, I would. I don't see it making a world of difference.

Your exactly right it won't make much difference. If you think you see it, add more punch but keep your timing the same.

Sure Cake, I wouldn't expect anything else. This is why I'm not rushing to get them out on the tracks just yet. Todd and I want to do more comparison testing during races. This will be the true tale of the cells.

How did they mount up? I was looking again at Larcs and noticed he shave off some of the inside chassis. Did you have to do the same with these?
