Cheers. I've added into the original post

All the cars were the 'latest' models.
I'm afraid I have no idea who chose what tyres but I know that Brian Eldridge and Elliot Harper were all talking about setups closely with Kevin Brunsden who won Pro-stock (putting in a qualifying time that would have put him 4th I think in the Mod A!)
Kevin was definitely running the Sorex 28's so Brian and Elliot probably were to, but I'm open to someone contradicting that

Skiddins

P.S. No online results are around at the moment so I can't provide any more info, and I didn't film any other finals as I was too busy

Chris has had a couple of different cars with him at every meeting where I've seen him. I think that includes a Tamiya as well as the Xray.

Elliott, Brian and myself were all running sorex 28. They were simply more consistant throughout the run.

Chris Kerswell was running Xray.

I'll try and confirm tomorrow, but most drivers are using the Nosram ISTC/ LRP Sphere Comp (same thing just a different colour)

I ran sorex tyres - like JP says, just more consistant.

I think there were 6/7 LRP/Nosram ESCS and some GM's in there as well

Afraid not, I took the camera to Carpetwars and Rug Racers with the best intentions but just didn't have enough time at either to record what I wanted.
Only the one final from each I'm afraid

I reckon it might be Elliot Harpers Year at the nationals, Kevin Brunsden (my sponsor and a national A-Finalist driver) reckons to never underestimate Andy Moore.
