I wish I knew what kind of tires we would run, but it is such a guessing game. At Bakersfield, it was "supposed" to be Holeshots, but BKs and Tapers were dialed. Then at Pegasus, Holeshots were "diald", but Red Xs and Kingpins were the bomb. Then Revelations, IFMAR Pins and Bigshots, but Holeshots were really the dialed tires. The thing is, no one will know for sure what the dialed tires will be untill Sunday afternoon....

If you have it, bring it.... (Except Pink or R3 compound tires)......

depends on where you stand.. i hate standing near the computer.. eventhough that is where the fan is.. but i cant see the landing either,, im too short..lol.. but standing there i can see and maipulate the car better on that side of the track,, i usually stand to the far left or offset center to the left still.. but i like it.. got to do some testing with my lil vendetta lastnight.. i was impressed with it inn stock form..

yea im too short too. i stood all the way to the left..and STILL could not see how i was landing..

i usually stand around the center..maybe to the left a little bit..that is always my favorite spot because on most of the layouts you can see EVERYTHING and you are just in the PERFECT spot to see every jump and its really easy for me to speed up and slow down for corners and go right into the apex of the corner. thats why i love standing in the center-ish area...but with the current layout..i cant see crap anywhere..LOL

it is hot as hell up there isnt it? i remember i was wearing a black sweater once...and i was concentrating really hard..LOL i was sweating so hard...it was crowded too...so alot of body heat was flowing around...i like it at socal when its raining..the cold air flows in cuz the big fan sucks it in and blows it into the store. its always nice to stand infront of the big fan..hahaha i remember i used to puff up my t shirt up using the fan and it would look like i was all big and looked like i had huge muscles.....
