Default Special Thanks!

I would like to thank Keith Dibrino of Drew Paints for supply us with our new Grip Monster curb paint! This is the exact same stuff used for the Circuit of the Americas F-1 track. Yes, we are going BIG TIME! Thanks again Keith

Nope, just means you can drive on the curbs and still have traction!

Default GT8 Help

Grippy curbs, now that's impressive!

A few GT8 questions:

1) I overheard at the track something about needing to run a 7mm venturi. Is that for .21's or .28's? Or both?

The reason I ask is I have a .21 engine that I'd like to use.

2) For the TZ GP do I need to purchase 2 sets of Sweep tires in addition to the entry fee?

Purchasing 2 sets (1 for practice + qualy and 1 for the mains) at the GP is cool, I just want to budget things out.

3) Will anyone be at TZ this Sunday (6/8) for Practice with an Ofna GT8 starterbox? I would expect to be there around 1pm. I would like to test with Enduro winning machine.

Thanks!

KJ, GT8 Roar rules are .21 5 port limit with 7mm Venturi, unless you are using the RTR motor with a pull start. Budget 2 sets of tires for the TZGP.

We will be there sunday.

Saturday we are having a work party if you get bored
