I think they, at least the one you mentioned, now starting to realize that total sales volume needs to bee produce in order to get specific amount of profit they expect to have. Not like `some others` who still wanted massive profit out of single sale transaction. I believe someone mention before that GQ tires costs USD25/pair for either 26/30mm in UK.

Old production batch do not comes with sealed plastic. Starting, I believe, about 2 months ago they start packing the tires with sealed plastic.

Im relative new for Silverstone, even RC. Just start playing RC for 3months (2 for EP, and than switch to GP).

I always have an Associated baseball hat on (Hey no flame on my hat.. I know this is Serpent forum.. ) My new 710 is with dark yellow color.

CYA on Sunday..

I'd reckon if you sprayed some WD40 on those tires and it'll be good to go.

p/s: Damn. It looks like it's been raining almost every morning and evening here. Not that I could sneak out this weekend anyway.
Yeah, somehow I just can tune the dirt filter for the 710 You know yourself how well it worked for the 705

Aha, you saw the WD40 great tip, D. I'm sure I'll be faster than those RTRs soon

Rain: tell me about it - we have storms here every day Came in this morning - nice and sunny - though this afternoon would be a definate goer for the 710 - now the clouds are coming in and it is supposed to cats&dogs this afternoon I've had enough of this summer I'm going to have to get my Surikarn out of the cupboard and go to the indoor track

Not sure if anyone can confirm it, but I have heard that the "wire" anti-rollbars are better than the "blade" anti-rollbars.

Anyone know any better?

I think blade type is better for GP cars and not suitable for EP since they are too hard (even with the softest setup) And also, blade type rollbars feels like they're more consistent and more precise. Different people will have different opinions though...
