Sorry, guess I should have denoted that the business will be located at the corner of South First and West Monroe in downtown Belleville.

It's about 3 blocks south, and 1 block west of the Belleville fountain.

In 12th scale, purple fronts, grey rears, white rears if you want more traction, but greys are what I run. I was trying a cyan front with granite rears last time I ran 12th scale and was having good luck with those as well.

And, in touring, double pink/orange fronts, and double pink rear combo or
purple/orange (also known as plaid) fronts, and purple rear combo works also with the latter being a firmer less wearing tire, the softer ones (pink) are the faster ones, but they chunk and wear faster. Right now I am running the 2 stage tires from JACO i the double pink combo, they cost more but again they are a little quicker.

Where did you get the tires for that price?

I'm glad you got your car and can finally start racing with us. Which TC did you get? I know You couldn't have gotten a JRXS because only super fast cool people are allowed to have them.

That's an awsome deal, all you need is the transmitter and you ready to race. I want to see it, you can't have it together by friday night?

Don't forget about the hobby shops that have supported our races and stocked the parts we have needed in the past.

I've spread the wealth around pretty evenly between the LHS and online shops.
