Yes, it looks great! I needed to mount a larger wing to get the handling balanced. And make sure you leave the front splitter on!

It's a wide body, so you may prefer to run a wider track on your chassis. I didn't, because the extra width on the front keeps the inside tire tread covered enough at full steering lock to prevent riding up a flapper and rolling over when cutting an apex too tight.

The Zonda is good. I ran it on asphalt last year and it was pretty neutral. I did run a molded wing so rear downforce was good.

I got the order right, too: First ride the flapper, then roll over.

How well do the white ride rims take dye? I have a set of split 5 spoke that have a bit of purple tint to them. I want them black. But a real black. Not the really dark purple that a lot of dye jobs end up being.

Thanks for the help.

I've tried a couple of times to dye the rims black and they wouldn't take the dye at all. I ended up using Exotek black rims which were 3grms heavier a piece. There are some new ride spoked rims that are black which come mounted or just the rims.

Thanks for the info. I have had the exotic rims is the past and they cracked in several places along the inside lip of the rim. Plus I think the ride rims I have now would look great black. Could you post up a link to the black pre-mount. Only seem to be find I the white.

I saw a set of USGT Pre-mounts on there GRC123 that were on dish wheels. I was under the impression that in the rules USGT requires a spoke or non dish type of wheel.

Has the rules changed?

Thanks for the link. I guess the short cut I had was somehow to an archived page. Didnt show the new stuff. They do premounts on the dish wheels because some clubs run the ride tires in TC.
