this could actually be a good race if the guys threatening to show actually do. you hear me, ea?

what I want to know is how many guys will prefer to be on jacos (for vegas) versus sweeps/solaris (for halloween/cleveland) ...
No threatening here...I'll be there. Wanna see the flight numbers?

I would prefer Jaco blues for IIC but if not whatever is fine too. Its all good in the end!

jacos would be the logical choice given that it is a VEGAS warm-up. that said, i'm not going to vegas, so a head start on cleveland wouldn't bother me in the least, either. really, it's up to those coming in to make the most of their trip. i just want to know what i need to obtain in order to make the most of mine.

the worst case, in my mind, is that we're all on different tires, and playing math games to determine if we're actually on pace or not. if availability is an issue, i would sooner donate some to the cause than circulate the track wondering if (insert semi-talented racer's name) would be competitive if they ran a real tire.

the above scenario sucks so bad, that i'm actually getting irritated right now!!

does anyone know if the IIC-spec Jaco Blues are in the states? i believe Drew posted they will have the Jaco Prism rim instead of the Yokomo dish.

Can you scare up the rest of the Detroit crew MRod? I might come out if you can. I can't make Vegas due to unforeseen circumstances, but I have a car and the spec tires....

Basicly, I have no Jacos blues...so.....
So are you building in excuses for poor results before the race? I like it! I think its time to come over and "slay the dragon"!

I will be down along with Pete D. We will have 1/12 Mod, 1/12 13.5, WGT's, Mod TC all in toe.

If you guys need/want some Jaco Blues for the race, I have a fair amount of tires on both Yokomo and Prism rims - I believe 1-2 sets new on Yokomo but most of the others only have 2-5 runs on them - They are all my left over tires from the past 1-2 years of handout TC races. After being run, thrown into bags and stored in a box. I can bring them with me and anyone wanting some can get some from me so everyone can be on equal tires - If you want... Just an offer so no one has any excuses not to come out and have some fun reguardless if you are going to IIC or not.

Back to work, it's coming up quick!!
