Default tires

The Technokit tires I have are on the same exact rims but have solid rubber mounted tires. They work great, especially in the heat we have here in the great state of Texas. Good luck with your racing. I'll send pics when I get my OFNA GTP pieced back together.

Regards,
Speyederjedi

Ipanema Racing Tires come in 35, 40, 45, 50 & 55 Shore ratings.

They're lite-weight pre-mounted "Slicks" that offer the ability to use tires to "Dial-IN" to changing surface temps & conditions.

Thanks Miami,

Yes, you’ll see it at the Homestead race.

There should be at least 4 of us from Tampa racing with the new ProtoForm PF8-GT bodies!

All lexan bodies seem to have some flex. Just add a 5th body post to your car like the 200mm sedans have in front of the windshield, make a nice foam bumper to fit under the front end and flex won’t be an issue anymore.

Are any of you guys from Miami going to race with us?





My PF8-IGT



Tony C's PF8-IGT



It's gonna be fun!

Paint work does look real good.

Bring it down we'll "smoke-it" & put JL's tires on it too

Wow 6 body mounts, a lot of clips to find after getting your doors blown off, JK, not really

Car looks cool, GT8-GT body is nice!

Paint looks real good.

Added the 5th post a while back, body support is much better.

See you at the races.
