Man i was thinking about grabbing some beer too....glug glug, slurp, errr burp...

& i don't know what goes on in Alabama, but they're probably nice people(i wouldn't know as i haven't been there yet), but you always get someone from somewhere that ruins it for everyone else. Guess he's gone to play with....well whatever he plays with in Alabama.

Jack: When I worked at Hobby Action we stocked those foams. Try there. We won't have the foams you're looking for till the actual store opens.

I check there and they didn't have them either. I went ahead and ordered from Trinity. Hardly any one has foams. It will be nice to have a well stock hobby shop in town.

I was told they are backordered. When nobody has them I have to believe it.

Hard to stock a part like that.

yeah i have a feeling you wont be getting any foams from trinity.. yet... stock foams work just as well, but they dont last quite as long.

That was going to be my next question. As fast as Holeshots wear, I was wondering if the stock foams would be okay till I can get the Trinitys. I will give those a try. Thanks for the info.

Yes, stock foams may even be better for the pit cuase it doesnt have much traction compared to most holeshot tracks. The problem is the front tires cuase they tend to last longer... so grey foams better for them, but i have been running stock foams becuase its all i have.

If you happen to beable to get losi stock foam, it lasts longer than proline stock foam :O
