It's only fair if the tire choice is common knowledge well in advance of the race , whether you go to the tamiya track for the speed tech race or practice at your own local club. It gives people a chance to prepare, just like any motor racing event, the tires are common knowledge before the season starts. This should be no different, IMHO. Just my 2 cents...

I just think it'll lead to better and more enjoyable racing if it is known sooner than later. The post prior to mine suggested any announcement be delayed on purpose ( on the previous page ) . I disagree. And I didn't mean to imply anything else.

Just saying if I'm the event organizer I wouldn't announce it now to give everyone a fair chance at the event.
I'm not a event organizer either but if Team Associated knows and they are participating wouldn't that be an advantage for them over other factory teams. When they know don't you think that some don't already know and those are racers using the tires while keeping quiet. The same goes for the track. Some knew where the race was before it was announced. Think outside of the box.

I think we will get the announcement soon. I am not expecting to compete with team AE but do believe some already know the tires and the rest of us should know too.
