We have been busy continuing getting things ready and we are all so excited to make the trip to sin city for another great IIC. I would like to cover a couple of questions that I have been getting regarding bodies.
When I made the announcement regarding light weight bodies I should have used different words regarding them. The bodies I was referring to was the ultra light weight bodies that the foam tire racers have been using.
Normal lightweight bodies that are sold as such are fine and we will allow them in the Rubber tire classes.
I am sorry for any confusion I may have caused with this information.
TIRES TIRES TIRES.
I would like to announce what tire tire will be for this years IIC. With the tire world in a state of chaos over the past couple of months. we have had to wait to see how everything was going to pan out. Well we have been doing a lot of testing during this time and Jack from Jaco has come up with what I think is his best tire yet.
For the 2008 IIC. we will be using the Jaco Rubberz BLUE compound tire. We have done extensive testing and this new Blue compound tires is great! we have run it with both 13.5 and Modified and it has held up great and gives plenty of traction. The new tire will be on the new Prism wheel and will make for a great spec tire for this years event. You should be able to get these tires soon from your local hobbyshops and of course we will have them for sale at the event.
We are getting close to our hotel room block release date and would like to remind everyone that if you have not reserved your hotel room yet, now is the time. The hotel has just remodeled many of their rooms and our block will be in the new area of the hotel. I have seen the rooms and they are great!
We still have a few open spots so if you know of anyone that is wanting to get into the IIC, please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will take care of them.
As always, if you have any questions, please let us know.
Scotty " Velvet Tongue" Thanks Josh, I will never here the end of this.
