Most likely Yomitan, if I could ever get my Tekin RS wired up in the EVO 5 MS (ya'll know I'm a neat freak, and all these wires with this sensored brushless set up is killing me!).

It's the first race under the new Fiscal 2010 rules, but it's not a points race - a great opportunity to see where the new set up stands. That, and I won't be able to make it to the actual first points race in January, as I'll be in Hawaii getting eye surgery

Sometimes their stock it out of stock for a long time which can get frustrating.
Sweet! I'll keep that in mind for my 1/8th scale electric assualt

For me it's hard to say. The track seems to have a high clay content and packs pretty good, but it's very dusty/loose to drive on at the moment. Who knows what'll happen, especially after we start driving on it and it gets some weather (read: rain).

Just for that purpose, I have a bunch of different AKA pre-mounts in Med and Soft compounds to test with. As the track stands right now though, I think AKA I-Beams in Soft may do well, as one member already eluded too...
