ok guys im going to open a can of worms here

i am looking going to attend the haloween classic and am wondering if any top driver are attending

now for the question they are allowing three different tires
Solaris Medium (Medium Insert),
Sweep “Real Blue” QTS32
Jaco Blue Premount Tires

what are everyones opinions of these tires on carpet
performance,consistancy,and drop off

Also great job arvin and the rest of the top racers at vegas (that will show anyone who doubted this car)

Just wanna double what Larry said.

Great job guys!!

That 17.5 stock main was nuts. Didn't listen to the audio, but watched the video and laps and lots of action. Great job not giving up Dustin and driving your tail off. A win well deserved.

Jerry, great job winning Amateur. Now you can hang with Fat Jesus and tell him to get a TOP car already!

Ball cups are very nice on the Photon, and strong, in fact the whole car seems very strong, I clipped a Nitro car at one point, and the nitro car broke.

The stock bumper has me of two minds, mine took a visual beating, it's now compressed a bit, on the one hand it looks like it's a bit lightweight for the task, on the other maybe the fact it took the beating means it took most the shock in sacrifice.

Congrats to Dustin and Jerry ... I knew Dustin had the setup on point from day 1 to win by just watchiing his car. I'm still shocked and excited that Jerry pulled off the win from 6th on the grid.

A few of us are hoping to make the race as well, I can tell you this much we won't be running blues Have to get some testing done on carpet between the sweep and solaris, but I have a feeling we'll end up on sweeps.
