they're going to need to wear better and cost cheaper then the current ones - if you want people to honestly buy off on what looks like a complete change

hope you're going to be testing them up here at Jackson and not down your way

That is what we will find out. 3yrs of testing down here we know what translates to Jax. Ride tires would be great but idk if they distro to US. We will see, have to talk to greg, al, and john next couple days. R

They used their re36 tires over there and last couple yrs it has been in race report that they used 2-3 sets for the event. were they reusing tires idk but its ok we will find a motor gear and tire combo that will reduce cost/burden go lil quicker and make a fun show for all. All anyone wants right? R

We will discuss but the date, other race conflicts, vacations, and rules gettin out late were the biggest. It couldnt get resched as it was bc greg is not avail. If it were to go forward someone else had to step in and set it going. We will be discussing that this wkend. Ill make the phone calls see where are at and thus have some tests startin this wkend to see make car touch quicker but still easy to drive on a more eco tire. Will have more by week's end. If there is a choice on motor i will poll the team captains for their choice. It is my feeling that we look at 17.5 on a dumb esc (itll be short on gear in a tt but we are not talkin 6min here). But thats next yr.

Hey ya'll, just so everyone knows...I cannot continue with the 24 because I'm moving to Florida within the month. I sincerely hope this race lives on in some way, shape, or form, and that I can attend as a competitor for once!

Good luck brother.
Hopefully you can make it up for slowbirds (assuming it will happen again).
Rock on.
