Will have them, no problem. Not sure if we've met...I'll be wearing a black jacket and blue hat. Or just have someone point me out. See you Wed.

Hey Maybell, so is the tire of choice for the rear still yellows or is it orange? Fronts: black? Thanks Alvin

Blacks are a solid front. Yellows in the back have a little more rotation than the oranges, but they peel easier. Oranges have a stiffer outer sidewall, so it helps it not fold over and slide. It also helps it not chunk as easy!

I'll be experimenting with Grey fronts too.

I havent ran orange compound yet, but I will try them Wednesday(finally have some). Peter told me his car felt the same with orange and yellow.

As for fronts, I am still liking black the best. Canyon told me once you go black, you never go back!

Black and Yellow are the best combo right now. However I don't think anyone has gotten their car to steer the same at the beginning of the race as at the end... that being said, people are still trying lots of tire combos.

But if you want a go to set that works pretty well, Black and Yellow won't do you wrong.

Don't know about you guys, but I was thinking about racing a Kyosho snowmobile Wed night.

Dress warm. Gonna be chilli! That's what we should do; bring a crock pot of chili and some hot chocolate with a little peppermint schnapps on the side.

Hey Maybell, If you have some orange rears you might want to bring them on Wed. I have yellows but no orange-
Thanks for all the input guys!
