I already came up with my Mike beater rim, tire, foam combo.

Good luck with that!!! I only see two guys that can possibly beat Mike, Jouquin DeSoto Jr and Mike himself. Don't think your beater rim, tire and foam combo will help you much against the likes of best GT driver in the US.

we have all been running the pre-mounted out of the package tires. After you scuff them in , the air gap is there.

Thank you Captain Spooky, from watching the video I realized I've made too many errors on the track. I'll need to sharpen my driving skill for sure. Practice, practice, and practice!!! So much fun!!!!

Congratulation to 1st place winner Bill, 2nd place winner Chad, and 3rd place winner David at the 34th annual Texas Biggie. Sweeps Racing Tires TQ'ed and swept podium once again. What a great event it was. I would like to thank Bob and Bill for hosting the event and Jeff for directing the race. I would love to go back for next year. What a great bunch of GT drivers, overall atmosphere was very positive. Lets do our best to grow this wonderful class even bigger
