Default VTA Tires

Is there currently anyone who does not have tires for their VTA car? If everyone has enough tires to get them through the season or at least the first points series then the tire issue doesn't exist. I know on the Facebook group i saw a couple posts about people having several sets and they are willing to sell there extras to those that don't have tires. Since the first 2 races are test and tune I am going to be running the HPI tires and the RIDE tires just to see how they compare.

Pretty sure the eFuel power supply I have pulls less than 400W to run a 1200W/60A transformer -- but not sure.

Also, Test & Tune is non-timed runs, just seeing how the setups shake out -- right?

Test and tune is run just like a real race. That way it keeps cars of the same class on the track together. 1/8 cars and f1 cars don't mix very well.

The HPI tires on Kaleb and my cars are shot. Might last one race day. I have a few sets of Ride tires if it comes down to that or if any of the guys have some HPI's for sale would be nice.

Im just waking up at that time

Rather than just bitch about the situation, I am going to try to be of service to the group and sign up for email notifications from the larger outlets. I will let the group know as soon as the tires become available
I dont like 2wd...its harder to drive fast than a 4wd tc

I do like 1wd

I have to miss the first race this Sunday for a work trip BOOOO but I AM SO GOSH DARN STOKED FOR THIS YEAR!!!

Chris did you post the schedule or do you want me to? Also for anyone wondering I have an extra set of HPI tires, as well as rims. If my arm is twisted I could give them up, but you will have to glue them yourself.
