Well i think the lap times will be faster this weekend, trying to get some solaris soft tires to test and also going to try a different kind of soda to see if i can get the tracktion to come up. Last weekend was not what i wanted, as far as tracktion goes

it was alright for me.. Gave me a chance to see what a handfull of a car can do..

Going from novice 27t motors in 99 to boosted 8.5 mod class now was a huge difference.. Man those mod cars fly down that back straight.

not sure i can race this weekend but ill be at the track, And willing to help with anything you guys need.

Solaris works closely with tracks. I usually buy my tires from my local track.

You can call Top Racing USA... 650-583-8898

It looks like Speedtech R/C (http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=856&id=9373) has them on back order right now. A few weeks ago I bought a few sets of "The Coliseum"/Hobby Town in Frederickburg Maryland (www.htufrederickmd.com).

i had a question on tire compounds. I was told by a racer at my local track that the solaris hards are a 36 compound tire. Is this correct?
nevermind, answered my own question.

Default Comparison

Just ordered myself of the mediums to race on high grip carpet within the uk.

Everyone here runs sorex 28jb, how will these compare and what additive do you recommend, currently using lrp carpet 2.

Cheers
