I'm using what everyone else is using now. After not being able to find and when I did they were always back ordered. It got old quick. I use my old sets for practicing for now. That is when I have time to. RCmart still carries them but like I said there always back ordered.

When I seen you at Jacksonvilles last race you ran the others thats why I asked. Big change aren't they going from a wide track to a smaller one. I like the feel better than the others to be honest. More stability in and out of the corners. So what are you doing for a track now that Robert has it? I know this is a touchy subject still but only curious.

Not sure if I'll make a indoor race this year. I may stick it out and see what happens to the track here or help out.

Forgot to hit this thread with an update on tires and rims. Nothing is out of the norm as for rims. There were those who dropped down to Ws and Mags this evening. I seen harder tires turn faster laps but its the big boys doing that . Dru was one of those turning a 16 something. Rumor was he ran blks all around. He was tq for the day. I still ran soft with hards and decent enough.to make it in the C main.

Those guys were fast because they do it for a living and on rc tracks all the time. I did a tire swap and didn't like the feel. To loose to me. My dad and I both ended up using the same tires. We ran hard fronts with medium backs. My dad did something I chose not to do. I guess he felt brave. He removed his front brace where I left mine on. I was faster but I got bumped in my last heat. Still had a fun time.

Theres plenty of good kart drivers who don't race like us. Jacksonvilles last race was won not by mepr others but by a kid who was 17 or 18? He kicked some royal booty. His life didn't involve rc racing. Its not us who win races all the time.
