Yeah Tom, I'll be stopping at Kranzels after work next week. I will also be at Bumps and Jumps tomorrow for a while (since it is only 5 min. from my house)

The BSR tire foam is the same as Jaco. At least that is the same supplier as Jaco. John has been playing with the orange ring for some drivers and making it narrower. This would give similer results as Cyan tires. But at some tracks xx pink all raound is working.

Correct. The orange ring is to tone down the "edgy" feel and give more corner speed. It also protects the front edges from chunking.

I as well as others have had some issues with Jaco tires coming off the rim but, I have yet to try the new style.

I'm planning on going to Mimi's on Tuesday for a 9 hour test and tune. Right now I'm planning on racing at Mimi's Cleveland Warm up Race. I might change my mind and come up to the ORL2 race.

Gunnar and I had a pretty fun night of racing last night.

Gunnar avoided the B Main with an 8th place qualifier in 2wd stock and ran 4th in the main until he got hacked and finished 7th.

I ran 4wd mini class and TQ'd and set the track record for 4wd mini.
I went on to a second place finish in the main out of 5 drivers.
The Full Throttle banner flew well last night!
Here is a pic of my new lid on my mini.

The new ones really perform, the rim is bullet proof, you'll like them!
