It kinda depends on what class your running and how hot it is. The last few times weve run there it has been overcast cool and even drizzling. In those cooler conditions sorex 32s worked well. Its gotten hot here in the last few days though. I just got done running 17.5 in another nearby parking lot track and the track was 140 degrees. Some guys ran 36s but you could kinda see there tires fade. I ran 40s and was fine. If it stays hot I would go with at least 36s - 40s if your fast in 13.5.

Also if you wanna save money I heard the sweep tires work just as well initially they just dont last as many race days

Patrick, I've fixed that problem with the change in the traction compound.

Pound it - can you note that Sean Williams IS NOT from the OC. - I think he's from Brentwood!

At Reedy Race Sean wrote on his sponsor sheet he was from Compton. So Scotty announced he was from Compton. It really happened and I couldn't stop laughing. He lives in Culver City though. So in short he's the Compton racer from the OC living in Culver City.

Trying to mislead everyone again....I see you working. You've been trained well. So you're really saying you are the Compton racer from the OC living in Brentwood that pays rent in Culver City just for mail purposes. Or is that so you have a place to crash in case you are shown the door???? ...Maņana pinche mamila!

Today was great. Grip really came up a lot by the end of the day. We've never had heat like that on that surface and I think the overall grip held up to the heat pretty well. Once we can get the loop figured out, I'm sure the program will get even better.

Lemar- I'll get you next time.

Hey Ray, awesome race man! I know you had issues with the loop, but you guys still ran a pretty much delay-free raceday even with the hand counting.

The track was a lot of fun, never been on a parking lot track that smooth, and high bite.

To anyone running the 416WC that would like my setup from today, check out my last blog on teamtrf.com, it has all the info you need.
