Default Yes we do. You can use either tire. Foam is popular at club races but trophy and spon

Thanks for the info.

I ran rubber there this weekend.
There are a few others that run rubber too.
Some have set's of both.
Looks like most of the faster cars were
on foams (from what I could tell).
I think Kitchen switched over to foam
towards the end of the day and was much faster but
I had to jet early so I don't know how he finished in the main.
Maybe nitrodash or Kitchen can chime in and hook you
up with solid tire advice as I am new to the class.
I personally don't want to get into the expense of running
foams so it will be rubber for me all summer.

I haven't taken a hard look at it yet that is just hte damage i can see with the body on. Yup that is what happens when you hit someone parked in the fastest part of the track w/ an 8.5 with boost timing and turbo cranked up.

I think we may need to announce that in the future just in case people forget (I know i used to do it until my car got nice and balled up and i learned the hard way I was vince and scooby was me), during warmups don't park on the line, especially at the end of the back straight. We line up when the clock gets under a minute and we will announce the back straight as "closed" and we line up tight to the back wall not in the middle of the track. They did this in Chaplin and Brooklyn it worked well no one got punted on the back straight during warmup.
Solution: Click here!

Sorry to hear your Tamiya sustained a costly repair bill! That's the cost though when you trade security over weight reduction and design.

Anyone here doing regionals next weekend?

Foam tires are run for all club races but you can run rubber if you like but foam is much faster but much more expensive but you pay for fun and they are super fast and fun BSR seem to be the best choice for foam tires they have good traction and good wear. Rubber tires alphas and sweeps seem to be the ticket trophy races run by skyrocket racing most likely will be run on rubber tires no foam love there but its all for good reason so there you have it. Hope to see a new GT racer at the diamond any question I will be happy to help.

Default D-MAIN LEE PUNKING OUT?????

Yo D-Lee say it isn't so.
Rumor has it you are searching for any excuse to avoid that multi-layered A__-WHIPPING coming your way SUNDAY.
You talked all that BS, and now time is counting down.
Please do not bring little Darryl SUNDAY, it would tramatize him to see that done to his daddy on fathers day.
