Spec tires for the event will be Twister tires. There will be tires at the event available for $10 a pair or $20 for the set.. We will only have componds in 37 shore and 40 shore. The tires for qualifying and racing will have to be purchased from Kraceway as they will come in a different color rims. The racing and qualifying tires will not be the normal white rims sold in local hobby shops. The winner of the spec class will have to use rubber tires when they arrive in Paris France for the Kyosho World cup..(Just a note for the winner)

At the Winternats I spoke with Joel Johnson(VP Kyosho America) and he will be attending the event.

I have spoken to a lot of teams that will be attending the Cup race here at Kraceway.. Dont miss out on the event that is for Kyosho cars and is FREE to all participants using Kyosho cars.
