No I can't say that I have...then again I haven't noticed anything besides the weight savings. I do have excellent rotation in the corners though

I ran it underweight first then added the difference for each bulkhead as close as i could and the car felt a little twitchy and rotated harder.I just went to a harder front spring and it took car of it.Also it will be more noticable to me since i think most of you are running foam.

I finally got back on the asphalt again yesterday. After 5 months only running 8th scale, I had a little rust to shake off. But the car was still really good. Just a little more twitchy in the main than I was expecting with fresh tires. Felt good to get out there again though. I'm going to try and get out there at least once a month.

Did you switch them out on the same day? Ran on the same track? Track was at the same temperature and traction did not come up? Might be all in your head!

This is the track the event is held at each year. Its Scotty's home track and is always a great race.

Trackside is nice for anyone who hasn't raced there. It's announcer Scotty Ernst's home track so you know the mc'ing will be good.

It's not in the boon docks like many track are. The area is just outside of Milwaukee, the hotel they suggest is nice, there are places to eat in walking distance of the track, oh and there's a strip club across the street from the hotel people usually stay at :P

It's also the land of big time rubber tire/carpet racing so if you are entering that class it's gonna be good.

USTCC NOVAK RACE AT TRACKSIDE

Hope you warm weather guys bring a coat LOL
