I don't recall of you running into my cars on the track. Only thing I remember is that you run your line on the track and you don't hack people around, I've always repect you of that. The things that you and Spooky taught me in the past were to set up my car to fit my driving for a particular track and then JUST FOCUS ON DRIVING WELL. And the most important thing that both you and Spooky taught me was to RESPECT other drivers on the track, treat others on the track and off the track the same way we all like to be treated.

Oh, by the way the reason you never tried my car was because your car was always faster than mine

Zoot and Andy, you two are two of the cleanest and best drivers I've had the pleasure of racing with. Can't wait to chase both of you in Vegas next month. Let's get Mark out here and abuse him a bit . JK Mark , how you been.

Sweeeet Offer ........ I will now have to work much harder to see if I can make it, but probably not.

Zoot ...... main reason he will let me drive his car, is that way, I can't run into him!

Spooky ..... Vegas ......hum...... not sure, but if I can make it, you guys need to wrench my car is I have not even turned it over since you guys were out here. My 1/8 Mugen ....... that another story.

Mark

I'll let you know as it gets closer to the date. What tires should I get for this race? 45 / 50 / slick / tread / other ???

May have to think about taking the long route and drop down through Utah, maybe hitch a ride down. that way we can wrench on the way down. But we'll keep in touch.

As to the race here, I'll let you know once we get things set for the pavement season.

Mark,

You'll need some Sweep EXP 50s for Vegas (Spooky TQ'd with them in Vegas). I am sure Spooky can provide you some for the race.

We dont use VHT.

Our track uses a mix of stuff.

The grip is high to very high with the foam tire 1/8th onroad cars

I know the slicks take a bit to get working on our prep

Thumbs up

Yes, they worked great! ;D Well I have to say my SWEEP tires do last. My exp50's lasted me 3 months of racing b4 I retired them this weekend. Started in Jan. to March with about only 2-3 weekends of not racing due to weather. Well I just recently ran them in my quals. rounds at the SWCS race. I ran the same lap count as the top 5 racers in GT8 at Gulf Coast Raceway before I change them for the mains. I tested them for fellows races in ATX, cause we all looking to stretch our dollars. They do last.
