sirSpeedy:
Pits are back? i thought GTP closed its doors forever. I talked to one of the guys from GTP , and they told me they were going out of business. If you can find out more let us know.

pits or sorex's?
I have a charity race in laurel next sunday and I need a set of tires(rubber)
the asphalt is outdoor kind of dusty and untreated.
the temperature of the track is probably around 90-110 deg.
where can I find the sorex's or pits at?
so my LHS can order them in.

oh yeah and what insert should I go with?

Yes, Sorex 32 is softer than Sorex 36. It might be hard for your LHS to just go out and order you a set.

Why would it be hard for them? That's what hobby shops are supposed to do!

(Unless of course, it's like the one here, which is perpetually backordered on Sorex...)

It is hard to get the Sorex tires. I don't even know when we are getting more. I should check into that. We were low on 32's & 28's last i knew..

Are you serious? Well I got mine from Losi, I'd be happy to give him the extra set I got while he waits for his. And I still have yours in a diff as well! (I built an extra one like you did)

Know if he's planning on racing it at Trackside?

I did read the directions............
and I have build a lot of losi shocks.......

and I all ways put a drop of oil on the top o-ring and a drop on the bottom o-ring......

it not my fault, if the o-ring is broken in half, I just got a bad o-ring
