Great to hear Spooky....I ran them at the last state race and they seem to work great. Seem to reduce wheel chatter in the front-end when I was at full lock with the steering.

I saw what Adrian was refering to today and have to say it looks quite good with many things i've never seen on a Schumacher TC before.

this is something I am wondering there is take off tires that I am running on asphalt when I run them it takes about 6 laps to heat them up and when I get cought up in trafic or if for some glitch in the system I tag a pipe I have to start all over heating up tire? should I run diffrent tire? or is this mormal. My take offs have lasted about 4 nights of 3 heats and 1 main. 15 runs plus practices and they still are in good shape.

Pw I start off indoors on a track in a tin building around sunset and run tell midnight! I dont know if they are 27 or 32's but i thank thay are 32's I could find out. I also could get the track temps! the outside temp in the shade is in the upper 90's and drop very little! I make changes at night when the track changes but I dont know if the track changes much, im ringing wet all night long lol Im going to watch the temps next week and see what the changes are and see what tire i need baste on the temps and would like to know if a 27 would get more traction even though they might wear faster? or should i pick a tire in between the two!!!

RCShark: As I was reading your question I was thinking to myself '...what tires is he running...32s?' Get a set of 27s and try them. The problem is it is taking too long for them to heat up. 27s are good for track temps from 85-90f to over 150 and the wear is not bad either. Hope that helps...
