I am not sure on F1. I just know its rubber, but not sure if they have a spec tire per say.

Interesting... Just looked at entries on RCsignup and USGT has more then USVTA ATM.

Travis covered USGT.

For F1, we're going to use the same rules as the earlier race in Nashville. Tamiya 1031 and 1032.

I had heard USGT is gaining popularity and that is why they ran it down at Snowbirds?

For USGT, Gravity Series min weight or normal USGT min weight? Up here we ran at normal TC weight (1380g) and it seemed to work well, but either is fine.

Put some led in it McGreevy! I think we are just being guinea pigs for Kevin and Rob at the Gravity Series to see if they want to change the weight rules in the future. I would expect since it is a scale "national" event they would stick to "standard" rules, but you never know!

I get out and play, just rarely. Sucks that everything is so far away! You better be there racing too. I don't see your name listed on rcsignup.

As far as sauce, SXT only please.

If you wouldn't mind, could you have that scale checked, Dave? At the race at your place on Jan 2nd, it was reading about 15 g light.
