Like I said, I'm good with 13.5T. I'll spend $20 on one of my cheap Hong-Kong jobs. I actually like your idea of limiting the tires to those particular ones as well

At anytime I would be more than happy to help get your truck dialed in. As I have mentioned before I will have nothing to hide and will share whatever setup I am running with anyone at the track. The better the racer you race against the better the racer you become!

The only reason I started the Spec class thread was to try to bring another class to the track along with getting more racers involved.


The thing is I've TRIED helping him. But whatever.

Can't wait for the outdoor season already!

Default Weekend Racing

I would suggest if steve is racing on the weekend how about racing every other weekend on the off weekend that steve is not racing?
I plan on racing at CCRCR on Friday nights under the lights So I don't blow my weekends kids sports events and weekend races when I can!

I'm pretty sure Steve is racing every weekend. We can still do it though. It'll be nice having 2 tracks under the lights on the weekends!

Default ribs?

so back on topic, what makes these ribbed fronts so great? is it really an advantage? seems like a minor aspect in the grand scheme of things....

Brett, everyone knows ribbed front tires are like robot legs... it's a pretty risky procedure, but in the end it's worth it.

I'mma keep running my city blocks.

The Edges didn't make a huge difference for me when I was running the cut ones. Steering was a little more predictable but it wasn't any huge advantage IMO

LOLOL you know I'm sure it has been tried the side bite would be great but getting there would be interesting

The carvers "should" create a more consistant and forgiving front tire. On CCRCR I don't think you may notice as much but on Factory and CRCRC track they will be more forgiving as stated before and consistant rather than twitchy like a wishbone or somthing along those line.
The more consistant I can make something on my cars the better you can get at dialing in what needs to be changed to make it go faster.
