Thanks for the info....thats what I needed to hear.

Team Associated has just reserved pit spaces for what may prove to be a fairly solid team. Good luck A-Team. I have just one question though,,,, who's this Cavalieri punk?

Your allowed to tech 3 motors in any combination for each class prior to the start of the race. For tires your allowed to bring tires from your own source (if you can get them) and they must be presented new, in original unoped package for pre race tech. You're limited to 3 sets per vehicle/class and you have the option to purchase a 4th set if you make the AAA mains. Because the tire chosen is most likely not going to be available thru anyone other than the host you'll end up buying them from the host.
is this tire limit for 1/12th foams too?

FWIW Jaco has been using the new slightly smaller wheel for a few months now so the problem has been addressed. Its just a matter of dealers selling their old inventory and consumers using up their old stock. The original wheel was just a few fractions of a mm to big.
