Dave, the layout was AWESOME, its just a shame the weather didnt hold out longer. Maybe that will be enough for Bobby to give you guys a Supercup race?

Thanks, Andy. If anyone lives in an area that needs rain, just let me know. We'll schedule a race there and your problems will be over.lol At least we got through all the qualifiers. Luther will figure the final point standings from there.

Default 1/10th buggy goosebumps

Andy,
I searched the thread and didn't see an announcement that the 1/10th buggy (rears and 4wd fronts) Goosebump tires are out. Since I already ordered my tires from the www.jconcepts.net site, I feel safe in letting everyone else know.

These are likely to be THE tire for our track at Ncontrol (Austin, TX) as we run on "packed" wet sandy loam dirt.

There is only 1 compound available for 1/10th vehicles at the moment, green. You could try them if you wanted and let us know. Indoor compounds seem to be very difficult to pinpoint though.

They dont really compare to another tire, which is the point. They will work in loamy conditions, but as they wear, they can also work in borderline pre-groove as well.

Track was awesome dave. I had a blast. I dont get to run offroad much anymore so it was a real treat. I will be back for the next race night. I will call and get the program from you this week. Now i need to get a J82 to run out there also. I had a blast running it and damn does that thing handle well.

I personally seen the J82 run at the Cactus. Someone was running theirs in open practice taking up room on the drivers stand so others could not practice.
