AWESOME race, I really enjoyed my first ever trip to the Halloween classic. This was my second Grand Slam series race to, 1st was at Mimis last season. You all run a great program will be back. Congrats to Keven, go Team Associated, Junior Norton. All the pros I talked to was very informational on set-up with my TC5r. Great announcing to the race directors. Keep up the good work guys.

Great race guys. I think Alex has to be the first announcer to ever lose his voice before the practice day is even over. Wish I could have run a little better in the sedan main, but overall, I had a great time.

What'd the dealio on the SJRs? Do they start to fall off faster than a Jaco Blue? Price similar?

Only 28s were allowed per the rules but that is what everyone would have ran anyway.

that sounds about right. haynes and crisp were also on sorex based tires, though, just using different rims.

they use the sorex rubber on a jaco wheel, with their own insert (seemingly larger air gap). right now, it's the only black wheel available, so that's one good reason to run them.

32's are not on the approved tire list for the grandslam series.

The black rims are kinda funny looking IMO. It makes it look like there are no tires/wheels on the car and it is just a body floating on the ozite.

Great to finally meet you this weekend!

exactly. if you're a guy who likes smooth looking cars and drivers, the black wheels fall right into that category. guys either like them or they don't, but having the choice saves some of us some work ....
