Are the pre mounts any good HPI4702 ? Also there are several versions of the x pattern tires , belted , unbelted , d compound etc

My hat is off to all that were involved. Well done!

4790 D-compound (mostly used on carpet)

4702 premounted D-compound with inserts and rims (mostly used on carpet)

But all will work on carpet ,pending setup ,driver and traction level .

The poeple that did all the work that has been done should be commended!! The track is BEAUTIFUL. Thanks is NOT ENOUGH. To have a place to race (and practice) is a blessing. I remember the days when we had to roll out the carpet every Sunday. Now look at us! THANK YOU to all the people at THE GATE....

i ran the premounts in nashville last year & TD'ED so they work...i also try the pro's..didnt like them they gave me too much traction & the car felt sluggish
also if you get the chrome rims you will have to watch for the tire coming unglued...i did have to keep glue'em

Default Class break downs

Here's what we have so far as a paid entry list!!

**Keep in mind we have a dozen people who just sent money to save a spot and didn't have a class listed AND 90% of the people only signed up for 1 class and said they were adding more later.**

1/12 17.5 = 23
1/12 13.5 = 0
1/12 mod. = 11
TC 17.5 = 42
TC 13.5 = 7
TC mod. = 7
VTA = 9
WGT = 15
USGT = 7
F1 = 9

A total of 131 entries and 110 racers

If you guys wanted to add your other classes now I can have the heat board done 6 weeks in advance and we could "guess" on TQ's and wins
