Sam - You're fast enough, don't worry about practice. Get your homework done, and put a spool in the car!!

so.. i know i've been PM'ing a lot of folks about 1/12th scale tires at Cs. i have two questions i haven't asked yet...

1 - how bad is the wear rate on tires?
2 - how good is the 1/12th scale tire stock at Cs? what compounds does the hobby store carry?

The surface is called carass. Traction like carpet, but the surface is super smooth asphalt.
Tire wear has been great. Yellow rears per run .10mm of wear.
Someone else will hve to answer on what the stock is like on 1/12th tires.

that type of wear rate sounds good.... i'm less concerned now. i was more worried about 1/2 mm wear rates _and_ the track w/o tires. thx!
