OS1040 is 5mm, so it is not outlaw. If you are running a Tz 3ports, are sure you want to use an outlaw pipe?

I really wish there were a better way to evaluate foam tires than just word of mouth. Wear and performance are dependant on so many different variables, that I'm finding it hard to choose one tire brand over another. At times it seems like the foam is coming from a single source and put out by different companies on their own wheels - but that couldn't possibly the case. That would be just too funny!

I found to GQ tyres to have a very durable rim compared to other brands, the Jaco tyres provide good grip but i found the rim tended to distort rather quickly compared to Ellegi`s, GQ, Arrows etc.......this may be due to the spoke design of the Jaco`s??
Cheers

collari tyres cause they got a reinforced dish type rim and dont flex under load.
and also GQ cause the rims are strong.

Now I think that there are two foam supliers, GRP and JACO. But don't quote me on that.
My presonal opinion is Jaco, and I usually use their 2-stage tires. But you know what they say about opinions.

Orion tires is also not either GRP or JACO, they smell much different and work very good. Last season i preferred Orion tires before GRP.
Ellegi, Arrows, Fast tires, Powertyres and other GRP brands is discontinued now though, and are called just GRP.

Mark...I tried the RRR. Very good car!!! I think I will stay with the 710 Maybe out of the box the RRR is ready to go. But my 710 handlings just as good. The one thing about the RRR is that it doesn't seem to traction roll. As you know the 710 as that tendency

VRC baby!!!!

The geomerty helps with the traction rolling - unless I have remembered it incorrectly, I was told that the narrower rear end and therefore longer suspension arms help with this.

I'll send you my VRC setup for you to try - its quite aggressive, but even with my crappy skills I was only 0.2 seconds away from 20 laps at Heemstede ..... dang!!

Cheers, Mark.

The 720 will have a similar rear end

Send me a copy of the setup.
