He can probably elborate more.

I know why they were trimmed you poopy-head, I was asking why the difference in size of trimming. He stated he trimmed 5/8s from the rear and only 1/4 from the front.


I tried these at full width and I fully agree that the inner was too wide. I didn't like how the foam acted on the rocks at all.

Ok Monkey's Uncle, if there is, Eddie has that answer. He's really smart.

Wide foam + Panther(Leopard) = ^stiff

Narrower foam + Panther(Leopard) =

5/8" foam + Panther(Leopard) sidewall firmness < 1/4" foam + Panther(Leopard) sidewallfirmness



Does that help?

You guys are funny

I narrow the rear 5/8 because the rear is generally super lite weight. On my two bergs I run delrin rear wheels with no weight and my back end will drift around on super fast dig turns . 3S voltage and 35 turns motor will do that.

In the front though, I use aluminum wheels with one full wrap of 1/4 weight around the wheel. Since the front is weighted / heavier, it needs more support which is why I only remove 1/4 width from the front inner foam.

Again, that is for my two bergs which weigh in at 6 pound 6 ounces RTR.

Several sets have now been sold to the guys running Losi MOA's in the 5 pound range and custom bergs in the same weight range. Once I get more definitive answers from them, I will have good recommendations on what to do to for the ultra lite weight crawlers out there.

Payment sent for another set of 2.2. These foams are exactly what I've been looking for. Awesome

I got mine today, too. I now have them in my medium compound Rovers...I need a set of softs for the winter, indoor series... Tomorrow is the last comp of our summer series, so I'll give them a full rundown. They already feel far better than the stock rover foams.

I ran my set in used Leopards at our Night Crawl (40 degrees)...best performing foams I've ever used.

Thanks for making these available. I'd trade all the foam in my foam box (new and used) for just another set!

I ran mine today at our club's indoor facility. I improved tremendously from the last comp there. I put them in my well used medium Rovers. They worked great. I won my class with a -7 and a 16 on the 2 courses.

Got my 2 sets in today. They are everything that has been said about them. I knew as soon as I opened the box and touched them they were gonna be the sh%t. I,ve got a collection of about every foam made, memory and non-memory. Time to thin the herd....

Can't wait to get them out on the rocks this coming up weekend.

Thanks for the fast shipping Eddie.

Thank you for your interest and your question.

Any ETA on smaller 1.9 foams for the Rock Claw / Chisel sized MRC tires?

Thanks
