Mars: Where were you yesterday?? I can't find the right tires yesterday after the sun set... I'd gone down to 24R but the rear end still didn't have any grip!! Would it be the problem of using 037F inserts which are too hard??

I hoped it's not the problem of my setting as it's not bad last Friday night at Kai Tak!! I ran with 24R + tire compound at the temp. of 11 degree celsius!

Buy the Kyosho full set (gold and silver front and back) they are very cheap anyway! When are you going to run it?

You always seem to pick up the good SH stuff!!! Your batteries were like brand new.... even if they had been 'raped' once or twice they were still a fairly good price!! Are you going to hassle Jet about your Corally 9T?

The kids running GP in day time were crazy. Most of them were running RR. I heard of many "bang bang" after the long straight road. Perhaps it's their trial runs. They need lessons.

yes ! they dont come in as a set of all different spec of springs.

the ellegi tires are in 26mm front and 30 mm rear.

You might like to stock up several sets as I understand that foam tire is damn expensive in LA.

Manticore- Do you have a 'sequence' for using the foam tires. I was finding that on the Xray my rear tires were getting too small and I was getting too much front overdrive (the car was loose in the back end). I was thinking of starting off with a new set of tires, when rear are half worn, replace with second set of rear then wear out the 2nd rear fully. After that put the old (half worn) set of rear back on. Do you find this with GP?

BTW- last night I started with a new front tire and half worn rear tire... probably not a good combination to start. Towards the end the car was very loose.
