I will have an order for sweep tires going in soon so we will have enough to cover the first few races and the big chill.

Hi guys, I have 15 sets of gravity Rc usgt tires coming in some time this week for the scale spec class. If you would still like to use hpi d compound tires Rc pit stop and go go hobbies stock them, if you want x pattern tires you may have to ask them to order some in.
If everyone wants usgt tires please let me know so I can get more coming, they will be around $35 cad per set. Thanks
