I vote for the harder tire. Better for racing and racers wallets..

Shafties also work really well on hard tires

no no no, if you can't beat them, change the rules.

You know what I think could be really cool? A Stock TC class with no lower weight limit, I think that could see some really cool engineering and effort. I know why it would never happen but it would certainly be interesting.

Really cool. For those who haven't run the Gravity tires they are pretty good, they aren't egg-shaped like every Jaco I have ever bought at a big event.

And hopefully a tire change in F1 also. Pit Shimizu's would be nice since probably 90% or more of US rubber F1 racers are using the Pit tires.

Spec GT Concourse rules. I know I mentioned something about rules in the past but I have decided to summarize it up with the following statement. Do the best that you can and be proud of the work that you have done.

There are no additional bonus points for diorama's.

Well there goes the mirrored turntable and sexy models.

So no additional points for non-Spec wheels? Does the car need to be driven in competition in its Concourse condition?
