Since the body you're looking for is out of stock, why not go for this exact body!

Just got a kit as well. Im new to GT class and I'm looking at tires. Can anyone tell me the difference in tires between #45, #50 and #55? Still don't know which tires to get. Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

It depends on the temperature your track gets. The higher the number the hotter the temp of the track thetires can handle.

Thanks,
I use 4 shoes, 2 allu and 2 carbon with soft springs. With this setup the acceleration is very smooth and the shoes last a long time.

Dcaprilia and I are both in the same country and would highly be likely running in the same track (w/c at the moment is still " under constuction"). Ambient temp here in the Philippines is in the mid 90's. I would assume track temp would be higher.

Also, when/how is a track considered "prepped"?

TIA and sorry for such newbie questions. As can be seen in the sig (myself and dcaprilia) off road background.

Are there optional (different degree) caster blocks available for the public yet? All I can find is 12 degree caster blocks available for the public at this time.
