Could have done better, always. But I had fun. Started 7th finished 5th. Could have gotten 4th, maybe even 3rd if I hadn't hit the pipe and got stuck. It was very competitive yet a lot of fun.

Hope the weather is good this Sat so we can do some GAS (no Ben, not THAT kind).

slowpoke,

I had a bunch of new or barely used tires mostly HPI with green/yellow inserts and some with red inserts. I ended up selling them all on ebay. I made half the money back on these. It was pretty amazing they sold like hot cakes. You might try that to recoop some money.

I'm one of those guys that already has a pretty big investment in tires. They do wear out, though. That brings to mind a question - just how long do most of you run a set of tires before you replace them? If we are wearing out several sets a year, then it might make sense to consider some kind of spec for our next sets of tires. I went down and ran with Stan a couple of times last year and wound up buying a set of his tires. For me at least, they don't last long enough to consider them any kind of long-term investment, and I certainly have no emotional attachment to them. What I'm trying to say is that even without a change in tire requirements, the ones I ran last year won't do me much good for very long this year anyway. I'll just replace them as they wear out with the same thing I finally settled on last year. What really seems to screw the whole thing up, and add expense, is when some one comes out with a new tire and you kind of feel obligated to try it. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. When they don't, they wind up on the "useless" pile and did nothing but cost money. When they do, suddenly everyone needs them and your old tire investment just got worthless anyway. I just hate to see that happen.
I run either HPI 27's or 32's on my Super.....Ive been running the same 2 sets for 2+ seasons now...They're getting kinda old but I still think they work pretty good. I usually only run them on race day so maybe thats why they've lasted.

I run Sorex 27's or 33's on my TC3.

I dont feel like I need to spend too much on tires each season, so spec tires doesnt seem nessesary to me.

I was really dissapointed by the 10th scale Spec tires at the Redmond races. They were breaking so much I had to pay triple what I would have for a good set of Sorex Tires.

Thanks for all the input on tires, guys. I too have had bad luck with the Take-Off dish wheels; I have lost track of how many I have broken in the last year running Spec Stock indoors at Rain City. I still think it's a good idea, but it sounds like we don't really need it here. That's fine with me; I will happily go along with whatever rules are settled upon, however they are decided. It's kind of nice to be able to discuss them in this kind of forum. Now that they are finalized, though, we will have to find other stuff to talk about.

Default Other Stuff to Talk About

O.k., let's start with the Dinner Train. You know, the one that leaves from Renton and goes to the winery in Woodinville. What on Earth does that have to do with r/c racing, you may ask. Well, it's a long story. To make a long story short, my motorcycle club gave the wife and I tickets in appreciation of myself being the President last year. My wife chose Saturday, March 13th to go. Does that date sound familiar? I thought so. Here we go, possibly into the first nice Saturday in recorded history (this year anyway) and I have Dinner Train tickets. Think she would understand if I did the obvious and made up some lame excuse to bail on her? Think I would have a home to go home to if I did? Is there enough room in the trailer for me and Alex to spend the summer, if we re-arrange the track equipment? What would you guys do?

I would like to run my electric TC3 at a bunch of Silver Cup Races this year. But I don't want to get a 19T motor. Is it going to be OK to run my SS4300 stock motor in the Pro-Stock Division?

I know your pain slowpoke I promised my wife I would take my son skiing the next time some friends went. Well it happens they are going skiing on the 13th so I won't be able to make it until 1 or 2pm if I drive fast enough.
