Been having fun with the 'trac

Road race, Auto X, or the Drag Strip

Is that RC wheel any smaller then stock? Is anyone running larger tires up front, any feedback. I have a 255 rear and 225 front and I was thinking of switching them around. What size spacer is required for a sportmax 50 17X 9 with a 255 up front. I am runnign a 1" out back.

Sportmax 17x9 fit up front fine with no spacer. The rear only needs a spacer. Swap the wheels and tell us how you like it. We have a couple of threads duscussing it, but no on has the $$ to buy different sized tires to give a review.

This season I've been having some fun. I'm starting to do some lightening and really dialing in the suspension. Sunday at an autocross, I had fast time of the morning session, running 22psi on race gas on RA-1s. In the afternoon I was holding down fast time until I suddenly got an ignition issue at high rpm/boost early in the session and had to drop out. I changed the whole ignition system later in the evening after I got home and the problem went away (?).

Then yesterday, went out and hit up Pacific Raceway for some afternoon lapping. I only blew up 2 coolant lines! (And fixed them and finished the day, haha.)

Pics from the track day (only 1 up now, more will come later today after I process em):

Videos from an autocross in february:

(This is all hosted off my home box, which has a fairly slow connection (2mbit upload), so be patient and don't download a bunch of videos at once, please. ;-)

Hey man, are you the guy I said what's up to at KO Racing last weekend?
