Default GONE BANANA'S racing foam

so last year i talked with the marcca guys about having a tire problem and couldnt find any green compound tires..i did however find pinks and silvers that did work and had great wear,this last spring i asked my tire guy to try something for me i asked him to make up greys compound to see how they turned in my lathe, i was given six sets to mount up and they worked so we agreed grey would be the new green. i called to see if he still had the tires ready for this fall knowing he had cancer and beat it once, i got an email saying he had died and that his son would be taking over the business but also to find the price of foam went up and with sct taking over i only ordered 600.dollar of foam this year so all my money wasnt stuck in tires that wouldnt sell, if i would of knowen to order more foam last year i might have been able to keep the price of foam down.

guys with t4's can find jaco green foams on ebay for cheaper but we all know they chunk or rims break.

i still greens mounted up on t4 and xxxct they will be 24.00 a pair until there gone
the guys that have the rt5 will be on grey and they will be 28.00 apair

i will be up around 3 pm saturday i,m going to monroe in the morning but not going to play i will work on truck there just want to see what show up there

i start a thread on marcca forum this summer ask people what they were planning to run and only one person reponded to it so i decided to start light
this is the part of the high cost of the foam,, me buying less foam.
3 year i would buy 300 pairs to keep cost

like it or not
i`m the only doing foam tire for all the new trucks with quick change rims rt5, xxxtcr, t4 quick change and i will stand behide my foam
let see jaco do that

3 Guys running the BSR rims and tires smacked the wall and the tire went flying. Cracked the center right out. Losi and J Concepts rims never failed.

Hey Rick, I think I'm going to run truck again this year. Do you still make foams for a T4? LOL What do you have for compounds for them?
