Just so every one knows Josh and I talked about this before I posted

he's not the only one there are a few other  ( I for one have many tires at home )

                            

And to state Again it's not mandatory to run the spec tire

for this race.   

 

I did not think I would get this much response

The Main idea came to me as I received a PM from

a new driver and also seen that Ryan and Nick from Visalia

are thinking of getting 1/12 scale.

 

The PM is from a new driver and has lot of Question

main one is what Tire to run and how to know the right

combos. this was before Ryan posted and asked about tires

the new guy seen the response and was ready to pull the plug

on his new car order. I PM him back and we talked a bit and

I think I was able to keep him interested. After I looked at

the post and seen that there was 3 combos posted I decided

to bring this up.

 

Two years ago we had 23 guys running 1/12 scale one day

then when some figure out the right combo before others the other

gave up. A spec tire will level the field and they last longer then the

Blue/Green/dbl Blue/XM/XH tire type   

Also a new driver will have more help with setup

The guys in Seattle who are also on grey carpet run the SPEC tires and they are probably the most successful club on carpet. For those that are skeptical about the spec tires, here is a video with them running SPEC tires in 17.5

Sweet! thanks Tim! Looks like the Majority of 1/12 guys want to move to SPEC.

looking at trying a spec tire for 1/12
this started on the 209 Dec 9 race thread but I thought it needed its own

 

I would like the 1/12 scale driver to chime in only but we know how that will go

(we know who runs 1/12 and who does not)

 

 

 

from the 209 post

Ok since I made this post my phone has died

We are at 60/40 split on the 10 people I have been able to talk to so far on TRYING

SPEC tires Not a rule yet but a test

 

I looking at this as a better start to the new racer that’s want to try 1/12 scale

We have the Georges from Visalia looking at getting 1/12 scale and asking which

Tire combo to get as of now they have 3 to 4 kinds to chouse from as each setup

Works a but different but if everyone was on the same tire the setups for each would

Be close for everyone.

I have source out the JFT 1/12 spec tire with BLUE stripe for 20 bucks a set front and rear

I would rather tell the Georges that yes use this tire as everyone else is on them

So they would only need to buy a few sets of one tire rather then 6 sets of 3 different

Combos  

 

I know people have invested in tires already last year, I have lots of tires at home and believe me when I packed for Canada a few weeks back it was nice to throw in 4 sets of spec tires and know I don’t need anything else

Now for mod I took 20 sets of tires and would have had to take 20 more if open tire for stock  

Again I am not making it a rule for 209 just a idea to try out
I have made a call and have 30 sets on order and will comfirm the order after a few have spoken up

please post if you would like to try them and make it easy on the new racers I will set up
post on yes/no
Thanks
Tim
