The zac foams are very very good. I haven't found their wheels to be as strong as jaco's or CRC's, but they are stronger then ellegi's for sure.
Yo Patella, I don't see anything, but my PM box looks awfully weird. I've tried to send you pics from my regular email account yestereday, did you get 'em?

You need a new LHS, I think.

They'll last about an hour.
Thats a very elastic estimate - there are many variables, like:
Track abrasivness
Compound hardness.
How much truing they have had.
Did you chunk one on the first lap out.

. . . lots of variables.
Japanese rubber lasts/wears longer and is a little more expensive.

Steve sells the Zacs in 30mm. Saw them last time HAG and I were there.

Yeah no kidding, don't be intimidated, just get out of the way! But seriously Calimassive, just come out, everyone's a little nervous at first, but most everyone there is very helpful and generally very nice, especially the owner, Dana. When faster cars come by, just drive your line and you'll be just fine.

Thanks kev and RC for the support. Do you have to bring your own pit table to revelation and what other tracks do you guys go to in the So Cal area?

Nah, Dana even has karts to help you get your stuff to the pit tables, which are mostly covered. It's the plushest of the outdoor permanent tracks here in L.A. I also drive at KZ in Sun Valley and very occasionally at Crystal. Don't forget Hot Rod in Saugus, or many of the club races like RC COMP at Citrus College in Glendora.

I ended up getting an RBx12 pipe, but I was wondering what other pipes have been working well for you guys? Novarossi pipes look nice......

And another random question. As far as modified motors go, how are the JP and Rody modified motors? Worth the cash or no? Specifically how's the JP modified MT12? Just asking about that particular motor cause it seems to be popular.

I think the reason JP is so popular is because its avalible, I myself have not seen a Rody modified, I myself have one of the last Richey mod motors, It does the job well.

PIPES

The RB is a good pipe, just a touch too soft so try not to hit the boards if you can, The Rossi pipes seem to work about the same. I myself am trying the RD Logics pipe and are pleasantly surprised.
I have also tried Kyoshos pipe, MIP pipe and the Turbo Ring pipe

Sorry forgot that's your secret pass move. No need to try and pass on the ground. Just fly over them.

Manticore's secret pass move is to "scream" up to 2 EPs down the straight........find a gap that is 2 inches wider than his car and "inbetween" the two EPs......just before the end of the striaght....... "DIVE" into the gap.....scared the sh!t out of me anyway....I thought that was going to be the end of my Xray!!!!
