Cool...can't wait for em to come out. I'm pretty jazzed on the thought that I won't have to run my motor wires over the battery

When do you guys get into Vegas? Hopefully we can pit together or somewhat close.

Sunday morning. Wanted to participate in the poker tournament this year since I wasn't able to last year or go to the indoor cart race the year before. Shoot Kraig in the IIC thread a PM and let him know you'd like to pit with the Hawaii group

I was looking on the site at tires and was wondering what tires would be good for fresh crc carpet? I see all theres listed is double pinks fronts so was thinking dbl pink and i guess pink or yellows any help be great. And if anyone has a good fullset up i loved to see it.

For 17.5 no-boost last year at the IIC I ran lilac front and yellow rear and this year for 13.5 boosted Jason recommended I run magenta all around.

My local track is running on new crc carpet and since we switched to that carpet ,jason's suggestion to run magentas all around has been the best tire combo on that carpet with the CH12.

that set-up is for 13.5 blinky so should work fine for 17.5 blinky.

I understand why you might put a hole in the shock cap, but what is the actual effect on the handling?
