The way spec tires have been lately, it would take a lot to disappoint me.

A Euro style track would never work in the US> I heard there was a track that tried to do it for a Big race recently and that race was horrible...

I think the tire issues will be OK now that there is some consistency in the new owners of Jaco and also with Paul being in the rubber tire game. Hard to say about the larger companies though. I know the sweep tire they ran at Reedy race was very very good people said!

I would like the ETS style track! Dots are fun except for 12th scale! LOL

We're kind of Euro style in the Seattle area.

This was my favorite layout. I wish we would bring it back!

This may have been posted already but what kind of motor will be the hand-out for amateur TC?

Also, is it Jack the Gripper again? The grip last year was insane, and not in a good way for me. It was the worst week of racing performance-wise of my life.

When does the motor list plan to be finalized? I can see at least one notable absence.

The list is locked down 1 month before the event date.

Since I am still talking, and padding my post count, the Spec GT weight is now listed at 1375 grams.
