I guess its how you weigh things out. For foams I need to have a truer, check ride height every run or two, check gearing and normally ture them down to nothing to start or at least be fast. Rubber tires are a little more (Well depending where you buy from) no ride height or gearing to mess with. Racing all adds up though and both have their good and bad points as we all know.

I use to hate rubber tires but for me I'm only going to race where they use them because after running them some I really like it alot better than foams but it is just preferance.

Hey Greg, you did order that cool-suit for Jeff, didn't you? Can't be worrying about a meltdown in the heat of battle...

The only thing that might be a problem is getting him up on the driver's stand with all that equipment on!

Team xpress must have been watching our testing of our new nitro power micro that has been melting down the track if we can only keep the tires on for a full heat
