I've just run my 1st day on a set of Twisters, and so far I like them alot.

But I found a great deal on some GQ's, and besides the orange wheels have heard they are great. Anyone know what kind of paint I can use to paint the GQ wheels?

It`s great to hear more `different` people finding GQ tires to be awesome and a very good value too. I guess it speaks for itself.

BTW, the best plastic paint is made by Durachem Japan.

I tried getting them off the web but no luck. There are some guys that sell over the net to the USA only so you might be ok.

Try Sato Seiki Tyres as well. They are the same as Mono tuning!

My favorite at the moment is Speed Mind. Same grip as GQ but dont take 2 laps to warm up.

Cheers

You want to hook up with Ben K. and try some of his FastLaps. They are really awesome too. I got your email.

Depend on the finishing top surface. If polish... not a change

Are you making it down for the Regionals in Kissimmee. If so I am looking forward to meeting you fast guys from GA.
