When I started racing we had 3 foam tires...Blue, Green and Yellow. We raced 1200SCR Red Sanyos cell that would last 2 years or more and still be fast.

Now everything is faster, gets used up faster, worn out faster and is more expensive...but that what we racers wanted.
the good old days eh
i remember 1100 sanyos
