I've run them out doors befoe. Just ask Art It will be all about set up with the tires and that I admit. We all are at the mercy of the weather God's for this race anyways. The info I received from the Florida guys didn't sound too promising for this tire in mod. Like I said.....we'll just have to wait.

It was cold and the day before it rained! And if I remember correctly it rained a little that morning too...I believe the temperatures were in the mid 60's!

i would assume yes, a few racers used this body in RCGT showdown. the integra was more popular.

my guess is it will be the same as last few years, you can tech 4 sets and if you make the show you can tech one more set

Wouldn't it be nice to have a website that went over the rules. Like number of tires allowed. Number of motors allowed. Number of rotor changes. What would they be teching for ETc.

Searching for one random post here and there for a specific piece of info about a race of this magnitude is ... unprofessional.
