People run dirt web silver or gold? Read some use silver and they have used both silver and gold as control tires (most recent gold)? Do they both hook up?

Gold is the most popular compound for J Concepts tires.

Few days at the track and a few days sightseeing.

Any recommendations on where to stay?

Would that combo work for mod and stock?

Hi,

Just booked the flights, so will be there 20 - 31 of August. Hope to get an entry in the Surf City Classic.

Budget isn't huge, something under $100 a night would be great. Will be hiring a car, so ok to travel around.

Open to suggestions on what to see, will be first time in the area.

Cheers.

MiCk B. :-)

For club racing they don't check. For large races they will weigh your car. It's honor system however you should be following std ROAR rules.

Ok. I wasn't sure about club racing. I'll use roar rules. I weighed in at 1465 grams. Is it supposed to be 1500 and above?
