Fuel, mule, fool, tool, shmule..... They all sound the same to me.

2 answers for that one; we have 20 and 25 percent fuel for sale, and I have a jackass .21 motor in my box, but no .12 meul.

The track has sick traction. Our club race today was almost impossible to spin out. The hardest shore you can find would be good. Some were running 45 in the rear and I believe 42 in the front. Squish can let you know what he was running (before blowing 2nd gear, which I soon followed). I was running 42 rear 40 front. This has been a solid setup for me, but with the massive amount of traction, you can run higher shores. Tire wear was VERY minimal. One set took me 2 qualifiers and main, and there is still room for some practice laps.

See everyone in the next few days!!

I was actually running a set from a couple weeks ago. They were at 55 F / 57 R. I normally like to run 59F / 61R.

Tire wear isn't that good guys...lol... It's not as good as in years past. Brian Berry and Aaron Buran roasted through their 1/8 tires (I'm guessing Red Box 35's) in the 15 minute 1/8 main. Probably about 7-9mm worth. I had about 4mm of tire wear for my sedan in the 15 minute main. I ran my 1/8 car after racing and in 3 tanks wore about 4-5mm and it's been super easy on tires all year compared to the other cars/drivers.....

Ted said they are going to spray again on Tuesday to try and help with the tire wear more but I'm afraid the traction is going to be rediculos so be sure to bring some hard tires just in case!!

Sedan I ran Jaco Prism 38 Fronts @ 59mm and 42 Rears @ 61mm

1/8 I ran Jaco Prism 35 Fronts @ 66mm and 35 Rears @ 74mm (Motonica uses an 8mm split)

At this point, I am sure there will be tire changes in the 45min 1/8 final and in Sedan there will either be tire changes or guys will have to run some 45-50's in the rear to make the finish.

I hope this helps everyone coming out.

During the day I was running Prism 38F and 42R and it felt like 12th scale. Including a couple traction rolls............. I didn't track tire wear since I was having other issues (my spur gears need dentures...) After racing was done I went out with Prism 40F 45R and it felt much better. It had a bit of a push but I couldn't really tell since my engine was HURTING....

So basically, harder tires will be a good thing (I think, but it's the GLC so who knows.......and I'm not going to mention the "R" word)
