i too, as some of you have, used nitro tires on carpet. i also at the time thought my car was close to being dialed. after tinkering w/ my set-up for a month, i gave in and got some dblpnk, dpo.

HUGE difference. the few kinks i was trying to work out w/ my nitro tires were solved w/ the proper tires for carpet!

no offense to anyone here, but most of you probably dont win your club races. i dont either. its not just coincidence that at snowbird and cleveland or any other indoor carpet race for that matter, you will find that 99% of all people who finish on the podium, run the proper equipment.

Wrong!

GRP does not make the foam. And either do we and either does speedmind or GQ or anyone else.

The differance you feel is in the cut, grading and mounting of each supplier.

there are two mainstream sources ( one in Japan and one in the USA) that most companies buy there supply from.

Hugh, Very good points.
