One easy solution to the 70-80 mph speeds and tire blow outs is to just shorten the straight for the layout.

I'm sure the tire guys will figure out what they have to do to make the tires better. I know if there is going to be a problem it will show up more at the nats in 100+ degree july/august weather than it did this past weekend or at the worlds in october.
That's a very real possibility. I have run the shorter version of the straight on this track and is very challenging too. I just find the 80mph top speed very appealing. As you know speed sells, just ask traxxas that's their top marketing strategy to display it all over their boxes and posters.

I am certainly not intending to put you on the spot over this or make any accusations about why that tire was chosen.

I hope it all works out.

whatever you do -- just don't bring a white/red/blue body-- you'll never see it

Check my video of A2 main is hd. Right at the end as one of the cars cross the finish line, he slid the car sideways and blew his rear tire. http://gilbertsantos.smugmug.com/201...E-WORLDS-A2MOD

This is the link for the video on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAac...e_gdata_player . It may work better for mobile phones thanks for watching. Also if you like my pictures of the event, buy yourself a couple you'll be supporting the promotion and exposure of this great sport where it's drivers don't have to be in top shape physically and get to eat all the frito pies they like. Lol! :-) http://gilbertsantos.smugmug.com/201...-RC-PRE-WORLDS and http://gilbertsantos.smugmug.com/201...REWORLDS-MAINS
