    "Rock claws and M2K's (tire setup Config. tip thanks to Bender )"

    What is the configuration? M2ks in the rear claws in front?
    Have you tested it yet?

      Either all claws , or all M2K's. I got in touch with him before I mounted up my claws (prior to the last comp. It crawled well.). Before then I was running a massive amount of weight in the fronts (12oz each) and about 6-8 in the rears. Traction was unreal but I had no wheel speed. Anyway I told him what I was running and asked him about his setup. He suggested running 3oz in the fronts with Mem foams and no weight in the rear with stock foam (This was for plastic Wheels running the Claws or mashers). The set up he suggested for Alum. wheels was no internal weight at all (I still have to try this when my wheels get here. I usually run/test my rig near CV High School. The rock pile there is more suited for supers. I have been able to climb lines I never could before and the lines I was running are a walk in the park now.

            I've been in the lab with Mini me:


            Thanks . It drives like a totally different truck. I definitely recomend the Stainless Fatrock C's. They are'nt clocked though, but longer link plates or a spacer between the plate and the mount takes care of that. Last year everytime I ran it the Alum. Fatrocks we out of wack in some way. No more wallowing out or bending now.
