Reality check, the Carribbean or racing at the Gate. Of course I am in the Finger Lakes right now. Winery count is six in a day and a half. Yesterdays lunch featured 3 wine flights along with my smoked brisket. I was only able to do one more winery after that then back to the room for a 2 hour nap. I guess I am getting old.

According to other threads I've read it's tentatively open tire. Apparently that "works" better than a spec tire. That is to say it sounds like open has proven to have been more popular. I don't really understand why that is, but whatever. I'm looking to give it a try. Sort of interested how a foam car is supposed to drive.
Josh:
When I ran the Losi in foam it was set up very stiff. I am talking 30 to 40 pound springs on the front and about 5 pounds softer on the rear. The biggest front sway bar made (I actually made my own out of .090 wire) and no rear. Tires were orange/purple fronts and purple rear. No sliding around one of those babies.
