LET'S DO THIS!
You better hurry up and get some new tires, because Tweak isn't an allowed sauce. Unless you were joking.

Black/yellow is solid but Magent/Magent in Jaco is faster. You have to say on a clean line as there less forgiving.

I ran CRC Magenta fronts and rears on both my Stock and Mod 1/12 scale cars last season. Magenta's seem to work fine for me, provided that I:
-- (1) Stay in the groove. When I stray outside the groove it takes a lap or so for the tires to clean up again.
and
-- (2) Drive real smooth. Either the tires, the car or both like a super smooth turn in. If I hack the turn in, the car really doesn't like that at all.

I have also tried the Yellow / Black combo. They seemed a little more tolerant of to mildly hack steering techniques. The car still liked smooth but wasn't so badly upset by rough turn in.

I feel like when I drive them well, the Magenta / Magenta might be a little faster but they are a little harder to drive.

It's worth noting that I'm no super-tuner, so I might not know any better with either tire choice. Best thing to do is go w/ Brian or Kody's recommendation.

Need a wake-up call?

Is 120 entries possible?
Will there be a novice B-Main?
Will there be a mod TC C-Main?
Will there be a Scale Spec D-Main?

I'm so stoked!

Looks like I'll be relegated to Wed. night races only for now.
Saturday sounds like it's going to be EPIC, though.

I'm so tired of bench racing!

I'm excited for Saturday night! Two complete rebuilds for Team Mason and we are now ready to go.

If I may...let's not goose ourselves with our own high expectations. Last season's opener was our biggest ever: at 47 entries. The next race was bigger: at 57 entries. At the time, it felt huge. It wasn't until October 20 that things went apeshit.

A good night is one that pays the rent. I'm hoping for a nice, evenflow start to the season. We've added a step to the track build that we need to choreograph, and of course, I'd like everything else to be perfect!

So, there you go. I'm not nervous at all...
