Better bring your 42's and 45's! I went out to watch the races a couple weeks ago and cars were traction rolling in the main!!! Crazy traction!!

You'll be ok with 40's. I ran 40's all day including the mains ( 5pm ). I'd like to try 37's from 10am - 3pm. Those seem to look more dialed and consistant than 40's during those times.

Thanks guys
I am actually getting ready for my season as we speak so I am ordering tires for a few road trips. I will make sure I take 45's even if I dont need them that is a bit to far to travel and not have what I need...

Double check with Billy but you shouldn't need anything higher than a 42. I would guess 40's for qual. and maybe 42's for the main??

O/T here:

how can you tell the difference between part # T0144 and T0161 ? I noticed on your set-up you used the T0144 rear camber brace. I have both, but its been so long since I looked at these parts that I can't tell which is which

T0144 is the camber plate that came with the MTX-4, it is wider then the T0161 so your camber link will be shorter. Hope this helps.

Hey Mike, I just talked to Loran about it and we are going to start making plans to head west to make this race. We have been trying to get out west to race for a few years. Looking forward to it.

Thanks Mike for the set-up. The set-up Ryan C. gave me was very close to yours. I will try it out next Sunday.
