So...what's the good "rubber"? TRC, BSR, JACO, etc. or whatever I can get a set to use and practice with fast like before Friday. J/K Also, if HW has is in stock?
Eugene- The good stuff is what you've mentioned: TRC,BSR,JACO,etc. IMO,the Spec rubber is a bit too hard & crappy whereas the "good stuff" is a higher grade of rubber. Look closely at a TRC purple tire vs a Spec Blue. The surface on the Purple has more of an open pore construction than the Spec tire. Also the rubber is a better quality than Spec.
I've practiced my car last Sat & Sun in 19t trim using Spec tires. They handled pretty good,except I wore the crap out of the fronts! The car may have been better w/good tires. The tires that HW carries (good rubber) are TRC's with the hideous yellow rims. They are more expensive than Specs,but if ya want to play,ya gotta pay! :(

Is there racing at HW on Mother's Day? I was at the store (103rd) and saw a sign stating racing sunday May 23 and it listed the different classes. It was hand written and on the car side. Go figure...well...it's a start...:)

Anyone planning to race at Strickland's on saturday? I am planning to but need to know the tire combo.

Kevin check PM

It won't be in GA hands for long ;) ;) Hopefully anyway <fingers crossed>
That's what I like to hear.......... Big Words... Hope you can back it up.

Look forward to racing all the new people who are going to be running 19t.

I don't think the track record will last long ( the first race ) after going to any 19t motor.

front tires

Hey guys i am running all four tires purple and i was wondering if you guys think is would be better to get some reds too. or is there not a big difference in stock oval. Another thing...my wing is level with my roof but its placed to the left of the car more then the center...will that make a big difference. i put the holes straight but i attach the wing to the chassic and its not in the center like it would be if i attached it to the body. :freak: Anyways is it better to run the wing on the chassic or the body?? thanks guys!!!!!! :wave:

mike :thumbsup:
