Well heres a useful and constructive post/thought.

There seems to be a thought that any pick for tire outside of speedworld Sorex premounts is the wrong tire. There's also the thought that this won't be the tire and the picked tire will suck.

Why don't they just make the Reedy tire open tires this year only? I know I know....its not fair right? Well running crappy tires sucks too. Just a thought.

+1

What's the deal with handout tires anyway? It's supposed to be some sort of equalizer, no? How exactly is that supposed to work? Why not just let everybody run the tire they're comfortable with and race.

Thanks Bill. Very Much Appreciated Sir.


Hey Drew, I'm gonna run RCGT, so You'll be taking care of my car buddy ol'pal......



If you've ever tried to be competitive at an open tire event you'd understand why spec tires became popular. It's not about comfortable for most guys that go to a race, it's about what is fast, or supposed to be fast in many cases. At least with a spec tire, we're all dealing with the same tire and don't have to pony up and buy 4 sets of "everything" in case they work.

Charlie,

I was considering posting about the non-spec tire notion; but, you have just talked me out of it. Thanks.
