    Be sure to hit the 720HD option. Cleans up the video, so at least it’s watchable!

          Great Scott Thank you for the video!! Question, how much time would you say was shaved by the rear tire change alone?

              Can’t give an accurate answer to that. Cars would naturally be faster, and handle better, given the track is no longer rubbered in from running exclusively silicone tires for the past six months. Can honestly say that when we have taken a car out of the box, put silicone tires on, ran it. Then doing what we did to the cars, running them, there was a significant increase in performance.

                Here’s a couple of things I failed to mention in the RS Viper vid. (not on purpose!)I used some .1 spacers between the brass spacers and ballbearing bushings. The crown gear already had one from the factory. Also, when you go in from the top of the pod with the Wera .9, make sure to sink it all the way in. You will hear a distinct pop when it penetrates the tape, and a very small piece of tape will come out. Then you know your hole is clean, and the screw wont get hung up on the tape. Free float.

                  We run them at our club too with both brands of silicone tires. While Quickslicks fit better initially out of the box because they take into consideration the ribs in the rims you can use other brands of silicone tires if you run a thin strip of electrical tape to make the space between the inner ribs of the rims flush so the tires sit flat. Also, another option for high speed bearing oil is Fishing Reel Oil.

                    The preference of tires depends on the track and driver. For me, Quick Slicks are quicker, grip better and handle exceptional on our track. Go down the street to Joe Schmoe’s track, that may not be the case.

                      You didn't mention that you'd tried other brands and (you'd only been running silicones for 6 months and we've run them for years) hence my suggestion of SuperTires.

                      Regards, Joe Schmoe.

                        When I state that Quick Slicks performs best for me on our track, it's obvious that all brands of silicone tires have been tried. And like I also stated, it’s a track to track preference. Not going to get into a pissing contest on which tires are better, it’s an old and tired argument. Track to track, car to car, driver to driver. Use what works best for you, period.

                      Great video on theses Revo cars. I have two of them. One is the supra and the other is the new Ferrari 333sp. All try your set up on the supra first then the ferrari. We run nsr super grip on our club. But we tested with the stock revo slot rubber and it performed exceptionally well.
                      Times were competitive after break in and rubber treatement. But noisy for sure. Thanks again for the great video. 👍💪🏎💨

                        Putting the tape on the pods(as shown)quiets them down considerably. Another thing to try is some toothpaste or fine rubbing compound on the gears. Just don’t do it for too long, or you’ll destroy the gears.

                      Nice! Yup we use graphite on the gears. And they quite down good. We use the boys scouts graphite for there derby racers. I have always had good success with that. Scott thanks again the tips are awesome! Happy sloting!
