looking to race this weekend.

The RDX is, in my opinion, one the most durable cars on the market. It is very rare that I break anything. In fact, I still have not gone through a package or arms with the car in its second carpet season...even with the ridiculous amount of hammering that goes on. The cool thing about the RDX is that you get an extra lap in the box....
If you are just getting back into things, I would recommend touring over 1/12th.

I spoke with someone two Sunday's ago who was there with his girlfriend, was that you?

well if we are going to rubber tires lets decide already, this has been a two year rumor already. that way bill can put it on his website and dot can tell people that phone about racing. the only thing i can see to do without alot of bitching is see if bill can get tires in. in lots of two, then somehow engrave a number inside the wheel or something like he does on the motors. thats if we want to run a controlled or spec tire. but really we should just run whatever rubber tire and inserts that you want. lets find out at this sundays drivers meeting whats going on already. because time is running out so we can start this at the new year.

kurt wait before buying a touring car because we might be switching to rubber and you might need the flexible chassis. ok, see ya sunday kurt...

if we go to rubber we shud use a spec tire

that way the tires will b out of the equasion and we will save money on buying and tryung 15 different tyre wheen and foam combos to find one that works

I say NO to rubber tires!!! Just give me one good reason why we should and don't tell me it is cheaper to race.I raced this past two weekends on one set of tires,that is a total of 6 practice runs 4 heats and two mains,I started with 57.5mm/one skim on my truer this past [email protected] ended up with57mm with NO tire chunks and that same set will go on next sunday. And to top it off ended the day with a TQ and 2nd place in the a main in touring!!!
Now we are also adding the expense of different chassis and I cant imangine the type of driving we would witness with rubber tires.Or do we need another negative quote from Kurt.

Im not done.Think about it,I don't think Bill Marshall and Jeff need the aggravation of teching spec tires,they barely have enough time to race for themselves.We already protested a driver for shock springs on a mini cooper,c'mon I can't imangine the protesting over tires!
