WOW is right. What was dude thinkng?? This is the reason you check your tire wear in practice or qualifying. Or maybe he just wanted to lighten up the chassis by taking a bit or a LOT of material off. I'll have to admit I've NEVER seen tires run that low before, well maybe sedan, but never 8th scale. A few more laps and dudes front tires would have been on the rims. Again...WOW!!!

Fernando is an experienced racer and I'm sure that he still had a lot of tire before running the second main. He just under estemated the tire wear. As for chasis I hope he raised up the chasis for the second main.....

Fernando said he doesn't have time to cut some tires during the bump up process..........but he did have time to crank the ride height adjusting nut all the way down to raise the ride height

OK, that makes sence. I suppose that he wasn't expecting to bump up maybe? Next time I bet EVERYONE has an extra set of tires ready at that track.

He was truing tires before his main to be ready for the bumpup, but they cancelled one race and his race was up next, then after he finished he had to run again right after...... I don't know who's fault was that.

If I am the one racing, then the tires will be ready no matter what, if you want to win, then you need to be 1 step ahead of everything even in the worst case scenario, by the way truing tires?

I take it Sam that you don't need to true a set of tires for this track. That's right, we were raceing with the tires right out of the box last time, huh. Because the track basically trued them down for you in the 3 or 4 minute warm up. I gotcha bro...well I think I do anyway...

Dude, why? Did I say something wrong? If it had to do with truing, well of coarse we would true a set for the proper split and size for the conditions and duration of the main. But starting with 77mm out of the box doesn't sound too out there with this much tire wear. Or is it something else. It's not like your going to hurt my feelings dude. I raced at that track once. So I am familiar with it somewhat. In fact I think this is only the 2nd race held by G.L.A.R.C.R.C. since they started back up. Or did I totally miss something here? Which in my case, can be quite easy to do. Spill the beans man. As long as it's not too much drama. I don't like worthless drama. But if you prefer to stay quiet, that's cool bro. You just got me curious is all.
