FiliPOW= Xray, huh?

How are the Jaco Blues compared to a sorex 28 or the like??

I suppose i should be asking the fastcats guys.

Im sold-- i am running rubber TC, possibly by the beginning of sept.

AMPED am I.

Is there a rubber class at Cleveland?

I will run foam touring as long as there is a class! I am also running rubber tire and I enjoy both worlds. I think it would be good if they make a control tire (lilac or same compound they use in WGT) for touring foam so you can get more than 2 runs on them. Either way I will run it. It would be nice to see the mod guys run 13.5 and eliminate the 17.5 class for now to make one larger 13.5 heat. 13.5 is faster than the old 19turn and the mod guys used to run that class.

Adam, I don't remember you looking like your avatar last year. I hate to break the news to you but the Riveria doesn't have that female impersonator show anymore. Better stick with your day job.

Nash, if you looked like Adam's avatar you would have lots of offers.
