Default Vegas Warm Up

Hi Chris,

Andrew is entered for Vegas - so Jaco Blues would be awesome but finding them has proved difficult.

Regards,
Ian

Blues have been hard to find I will admit. I still have a bunch of Birds tires and some IIC from last year I have been running. This is what I will bring to run. If some guys cant get them I know Josh is bringing his with him to give out. I'll run whatever. Doesnt really matter to me either way. Im not so sure that Sweeps are a ton faster anyway and I know Solaris arent any faster.

You just get ready to take it!

EA said I can run Sweeps!!!

Kidding, I have been looking as well for the "blues" and have heard noting from my "peoples"

I think it is safe to say "most" people think the sweeps are at the minium 1/10th faster a lap, I think Blues and Solaris are about the same.

If we get enough people who want to run we can be persuaded ($$) to keep the doors open

Will the track be open for practice on the 18th?

See you on the 16th.

So, are the Solaris Mediums both available and acceptable to run here? The problem I see with Jaco is that were going to be running old tires. Even blues got slow after while. Or would folks rather spring for Sweeps since they'll be runnable in prep for Cleve?

Let's talk about it so that we can keep the circus from rolling through town.

Speaking of tires any way to get 5 sets of Parma magenta/magenta foams so I can run 1/12th mod. What is going on with 1/12 scale tires? I can't find any at least at a decent price.

Sounding like the Vegas guys are pretty inflexible (which is understandable). Looks like we'll scrape together some blues for the weekend if we want to omit the math game. I have no issue with that, unless they are dry rotted.

starrx - It's not a rule, but I'm primarily targeting the fast guys to align on this for the sake of competition/evaluation/setting the bar.

Whateva.

Hi Fred,
