Default tire wear

Sounds like blue barcodes on all 4 corners is the hot setup for this track, true? What is the tire wear like if you are running 2 and 4wd Mod buggy? Thanks

I went to check out the racing yesterday, holy cow man! 200 local racers at 1 event seems unbelievable, I didn't know there were that many racers here. And the racing was great to watch, too bad I had to leave before the mains. I was told this race was bigger than the state championships? That seems weird but I also heard it's under new management now which people say is a good thing I guess. Either way I think I'm going to start making the drive out to race srs.

srs is a great place to race.

big turnout because A) it was a kbrl race and B) fear farm took the weekend off. there are plenty of people here in the valley that race and plenty of places to do it.

we're really lucky


new hobbytown usa shop doesn't hurt either.

Yeah SRS is a fun place to race and lots of very talented drivers there and I love the fact they just put in a store loaded with parts.......but I won't be back to race at SRC anymore until they take all the damn bricks off the track. I'm tired of busting a arms and other parts like chassis on all the bricks. And the store didn't have any of my parts, like a new chassis for example so I had to drive all over the city and have parts express mailed to be ready for the big races.
I have several friends who feels the same, they wont' race SRS anymore either until the bricks are gone.

Until then.........

I'm anti-brick myself. I consider myself a better than average driver but those damn bricks caught me twice and broke parts. It's easy to say, "don't hit them" or "drive between the pipe", but when you're learning a new layout and trying to find the fast lines and figure out the angles sometimes shit happens. It sucks. Less parts might be broken if the bricks weren't there. JMO.
