Great run at 301 over the weekend Melvin. Congrat's on your 2nd place finish. I'm thinking about switching to twister tires. See you in a couple weeks.

All the mugen sedan cars I have seen people drive have used serpent style rim.

Hope this helps.

Mugen MTX4 uses 0mm offset. When I ran the MTX3 I don't remember having to buy 2mm offset.

Thanks Steve!! I saw your run with your car also. If it wasn't for a little bad luck I know the result would have been much better!! Twister tires have been working well for me!! They feel the same tall or small which helped my lap times a lot!!

Default order?

guys,

I'm planning to switch from jaco 40 front 42 rears to twister tires, so using 37 front and 40 rears is the best way to go? I saw this from dj's set-up, and if I order today, do you guys think they could ship it by monday or tuesday using usps (florida to new jersey)? I need it for capitol classics. ty guys

You are really cutting it close. The best advice I have is to order from the web site and put special instructions for the shipping. You will have to register, but that is easy.

It shouldn't take more than 2 days for shipping. However, I would suggest that you have it shipped to one of the hotels near the track in Waldorf, MD. I actually had mine shipped to the hotel on Wednesday and the box arrived there today. They're good at holding boxes for you. Here's where I have mine shipped to all the time:

C/O GUEST: GUY HOOD
COMFORT SUITES
11765 BUSINESS PARK DR
WALDORF MD 20601

BTW, you can run softer shore tires when switching, as the Twister rims are stiffer. For me, they haven't worn any faster, even with the softer shore.
