Do spec tires and rims need to be purchased at the event?

This race is going to be a lot of fun. Get your entries in so you won't be left out.

Don't really know Mike. Some, me including me have had trouble with RC Signup. We'll try to get a list going soon. Ran a 15 minute USGT main again yesterday and it was a blast. This is going to be a really a good race and a lot of fun.

Can someone give me a general rundown on how this race works? One qualifier and 3 mains is new to me.

You run a 3 minute qualifier which puts you in your main. Then you run 3 15 minute mains and are scored on finishing positions. It's based on UF1 rules and will be used for all 3 classes. Oh I forgot to mention pit stops. You will also have to make two pit stops during your main. It's different and a lot of fun.

As of right now I'm planning on being there but summer is tough. I was planning on being at the finale and that didn't work out. That being said I have been hoping someone would try a format like this . The best part of f1 racing is 3 mins of qualifying. And 45 or racing that counts!

We got the spec tires and rims in.

If you would like to purchase them in advance we will gladly ship them out so you can get them mounted up!

For the Tamiya tires/inserts and Tuning Haus rims and shipping it's a special race price of 51.00!!

We have white, grey, and black rims.

They ran a 15 minute main at this past weekends club race for USGT. This weekend is the last club race before this event. The track will be different, but you can get a feel for the carpet and grip. Also, they will probably be open to doing another 15 minute main for the classes of this event. They might even add pit stops.
