You know I've done this for over 5 years and no one seems to want to copy this hop up option.

Am I taking Mini Racing not seriously enough???

Since I'm kinda working towards being the slower saskatchewan version of Ivan, perhaps I need a flag on my (now broken) mini. :P

Another option is to get a new non-broken mini, and tow your old broken one behind it. Why merely copy when you can outdo?

Like a true honky, I went with a Spam flag. Never could make it stay on the car though. Too greasy.

Sounds like the s grips are the tires to use on carpet, eh? Whats the deal with the 60D reinforced slicks? Type A = traction roll city, and type B aren't sticky enough?
Then there are the inserts. The front tires on my mini have no air gap. The rear tires have air gap. Different inserts? Or are the rear inserts just broken down (the rear tires have a lot of wear, and the front tires are almost new)

Sweeps are what everyone likes at our carpet club. 33's in front, 25's in rear.

Don't forget to keep a pair of the factory standard 60D tires in your parts bin. Those can come in handy in some instances.

Type A on the front with S Grips on the rear work really well on carpet. The stronger sidewall on the Type A helps when the traction gets high. Superglue stays on the sidewall better, too (if your rules permit it).

The last time I spoke with Charlie "Core Creations", he said he also liked them.
