Default New Tamiya compound tires!

I heard from some insider that Tamiya was coming out with a new compound! It's either a B1 type compound or a B4 type compound! A new formula that is comparable to CS-27's. All I can
say at this point is that it might be out in time for the world finals. This compound is suppose to work in both asphalt and carpet with no blistering!!! We shall see!!

Ray, why do you need tire info for Tamiya USA?

B2's...dude, those sucked so bad, I wouldn't even give them to..well, Troy, to run, that would be too cruel even for me (and that's saying a lot)
I guess Gary hasn't figured out the secret to using B2 tires!

Hey-I'll admit it-I am scared to come out there. Air gap-insert, track temp-scrubbed in tires, new tires, time of day-sun, shade, handout motor...... the list of unknowns goes on and on and nowhere to test within oh..180 miles...
I cold always come out and just hang out at the condo all day with Audrey and Stacie lol

Like I thought, Ray has his head in the clouds again...

The secret to B2's....Run B's Honestly, I could never get any grip out of those the year they were the spec tire. We couldn't get them out here ahead of time to practice with, so we basically walked in there blind in 02. I still have a set with either just 1 run or that are brand new and just glued with FMW's initials from going thru tech. What a nightmare....

Actually, the B3's are a pretty decent tire. Great wear and pretty good grip.

How much practice do you get pre-Nats?
Also-can you run two classes?

OK-so using no practice as an excuse is no longer valid.
