Im by no means a GM guy but that actually looks good. Are those tamiya wheels? just FYI tc3-tc4 guys t4 rear aluminum hexes are a direct swap and give you about 1mm extra width without any ill effects really fills out a 190mm body nicely

They have a cool looking tread pattern and hook and wear surprisingly well.
If you like the Associated Apex tires, try the Ride USGT SPEC tires. they are about te same price, but perform awesome compared to the APEX tires! My neighbor Alec was using the Apex tires on my car in novice class and I switched him over to the Rides SPEC tires and he won by 3 laps. BIG BIG difference!

My friend Bill is answering a question about what is a good FDR for a 21.5 motor. My answer is, it depends on the motor. I've run between 2.9 (by accident & I was about as fast as Bill was that day) and 3.6 depending on the power band off the motor. High torque/low rpm motors like numerically smaller FDRs, and high RPM/low torque motors like numerically larger FDRs. The motor I'm currently running was fast at a 3.2 FDR, but awesome at 3.6. For safety, start at a large FDR 3.6 or 3.8 (i.e., a low gear ratio) and start decreasing the FDR in increments ( I use 0.2 increments, which with my spur gear and internal gear ratio is about 2 teeth on the pinion) and note both the lap times and motor temps as you do. When the lap times stop decreasing and/or the motor temps get to 160F you have reached the sweet spot. Now go back to where the lap times have leveled off and the motor temps are the lowest and that's your FDR for that motor at that track.

BTW Bill, I found the set screw in the pinion came out that's why my car stopped running in the 12 minute main with 90 seconds left.
Since this post, I've gone back to using the 24mm Ride Spec tires on the 24 mm wheels. These tires seem to be more consistent than when mounted on the 26mm wheels.

I mounted my ride spec tires on 26mm tamiya enzo wheels and was surprised with how well they fit. They look like they belong.

Oh I love my RIDE spec tires but some of us locally just kind of bash around and run like an autocross and I like the apexes for that. they are a little easier to powerslide with and seem to last longer

Sliding is sometimes fun but it is never fast.

Yep, they would be great for that but not for getting good lap times.

Agree they fit and look great; but for me mine worked great one race. The next time out they didn't work. I just switched to another set of tires but on 24mm wheels and the car hooked up again and since then I have had many races on the same set of tires. Never found anything wrong with the tires on 26mm wheels, they just went into the Acetone tub for a long soak.

Ran my ride spec tire today on carpet and for the life of me couldn't get the car to stop pushing. Tried multiple things, eventually added weight to help get some better steering. I must say ther hpi x pattern tires were a lot better on carpet.
