Guys not to be a "Debbie Downer" but I know Mark and John have looked into this before, it's a huge investment at first. I know we're all willing to donate or "chip in", but it will barely scratch the surface of the costs. On top of that, Tires will wear 3 times faster than what they do now which almost prices some racers out of the game all together. I'm all about more traction, but think about this......if we're fighting at times for traction at our home track and lay down some fast times, it will do nothing but make the travellers MORE competitive when we go other places. It's not about being a "1 Track Wonder", it's about making a mark everywhere you go, IN A POSITIVE WAY! That includes the way you post on public forums.......
Just some thoughts, would be cool to be straight clay, BIG BUCKS and fast tire wear....I'd rather just race!

Mark do you have the losi/associated bb conversion supplies in?
James, you gotta stop making new accounts on here. The same thing is going to happen every time.

My tires didn't wear any faster at RCE or LIR (haven't been to IRH). If we can raise a decent sum of money, Mark and John may be more inclined to make that investment.

+1. Ran IRH on Sunday with "Broken in tires" and came back almost same tread, maybe a little less. In green compound too! Car stays clean too

How do you keep having bad deals? I've had at least twice what my trader rating says without a single issue. At some point you either smarten up, or stop selling stuff.

I run clay every day in the summer at Bashers RCr Raceway and only go through about 12 sets per car.

Well i should have about 20 positive because i sell alot of stuff i get a pm comment saying they leave feedback and they never do! And i only have 3 bad deals but i still solve them either they get their item or i give them a refund most bad deals you don't get anything but iv'e never do that and don't plan on it.

For me personaly if RCHR had a better surface I would show more than once a year. Also if the layout was changed the week before a trophy race like we do at RCE I think more people would travel. Again this is just my opinion and I'm not bashing at all. I've always had a great time at RCHR and would love to see it improve as I would for for any track and people I like.

Thats also every day. Still doubt you go through 12 sets per car. Really on clay you can run worn out tires and sauce them up and work great. I think Jake was running really worn Barcodes V1 and used zip grip, his car looked great, you just gotta sauce them up good.
