I actually ran both combos yesterday at Valkaria. Practice I ran Med- Med. Loaned a set of Med -med to Izzy and his car never ran that good before. the Med -Med ran good. For Sunday I wanted to see how the Med-soft would run. I missed the first qualifier. The 2nd qualifier I TQed and the main I lead as much as 10 seconds and finished 8 seconds ahead of 2nd. So both work fine for me on both days. So either one worked on my CRC F1 AR..

No Foam-period. deal with what you have and race- Simple. Dogmeat we have been working on tires for months and have come up with what works for us. Everyone is basically running these tires outside and doing good with them (on this side of Florida). The Team Powers are the tires they are probably going to use for the NATIONALS but they have not posted anything yet.

On tire topic. Current spec size is cool..
I miss foam handling, but Im committed to getting the confidence on rubber. F103 rubber is needed or a new spec wider tire maybe? Might grow the class, its def not as fun or easy compared to foam. Exotek on team powers and crc atm but still love my F103 on rubber atm to!

Dogmeat we got them to work quite well. My CRC F1AR- Izzys WRC, Sean's XRay, King on whatever he's running. The 2nd place car ran them also.
Foam tires killed the class when it first started back in the 1990's The Rubber tires are lifelike and like anything work to get them to preform on your chassis and driving ability.
Look if I can get them to work anyone can! The proof is what I did yesterday!!!!!! And you know me Dogmeat.

Since they are saying it's the nats tire, it would be nice if there wasn't a rug pull on us latein the game...

Team Powers tires will be the National tires. They will make an announcement soon. It's not my job to make the announcement but I would not doubt my information ! They will be the tire for the start of the State Series race in September. .Anyone is welcome to come down and race. Both in August and the state series in September..
