Hopefully Fred will be at Tamiya to confirm this Saturday. Tyree and I were told had to run tires purchased and marked at the race for both FF and GT Pro Spec as well as the trip classes.

Fred confirmed Sedan classes (GT-1, GT-2, GT Pro Spec and FF) must use a set (or sets), purchased at the track and that will be marked, for all qualifying and mains. You can use your own tires for Thursday and Friday practice.

I'm not an attendant of TCS but I still want to offer some suggestions regarding novice spec tires. How about giving usgt's tires a shot? They are inexpensive ($15 for 4 tires with insert) and can last quite a while. The pre-mounted set comes in around $25 and should get the job done.

The USGT is a great tire for this purpose at a great price but I think it makes more business sense to use Tamiya product. Maybe if Fred really wants to push for a tire change and Tamiya can't supply enough of the 93032 or something else in their product line then I would also suggest to go with the USGT tires.

I do suggest that if possible can we have a set based on the 51049 slick tires instead of the 51023 radial tires the 93032 premount set is based on? The slicks will wear better and can easily be rotated left to right for longer tread life. They are made of the same compound and construction if I'm not mistaken.

So with controlled practice starting at 10, is it open practice from 8-10?

Just curious, anyone happen to have a spare TRF102 rear lower carbon pod plate and racing at nats? Broke the piece and they are not in stock. Can buy it off you.

The nice thing would be that 51049 is the tire that comes with a TT02R kit, so one could use the kit-supplied tires and wheels.
