I would love to see a 5 set max limit on them, maybe less. That would be about $100 on tires at the event, not too bad for us "other" compound users, lol.

I am still trying to wrap my head around over $300 to run 2 classes, lol.

We will get the rules posted as soon as they are finalized, which they almost are. I just need to verify the i's are dotted and the t is crossed.

Default Foams

If you run one of the foam classes I would need to bring a truer with me or will there be one on site?

I am sure someone will have one you could use if you don't bring one. If I go I'll have mine.

I think a limit would be interesting too, only going with a total number of pairs rather than sets. If you had to practice with control tires, maybe maximum 12 pair and if you only had to qualy and race with controls as low as 7 or 8 pair max. Maybe with 1 or 2 replacement tire to cover damage.

Sounds good to me, that way you can mix front and rears as needed. Since one end of the car goes through tires faster.

See guys, I am not that bad about spec tires, lol.

We don't have a tire truer available for use. However, as someone has already mentioned you can probably borrow someone's to use.

Amateur class is basically reserved for those that have no sponsorship. I will get the full rundown in a few days because there are always questions like what shirt can I wear because my lucky shirt has X manufacturer on it, etc.

We try our best to accommodate everyone's wishes but sometimes things don't work out very well. With that said here are some rules regarding the tires.

Tire Rules

* You can used unmarked tires for practice.
* Tires must be used for the class that they are marked for.
* Sedan Tires - You can purchase a maximum of 4 sets to be marked.
* WGT - Rubber - You can check in a maximum of 2 sets.
* F1 - You can purchase a max of 2 sets to be marked.
* Pro 10 - You can purchase a max of 3 sets to be marked.
* 1/12th Stock - You can purchase a max of 4 sets to be marked.
