    I'm curious... What tires do you use on your 1/8 buggy? What does your track surface look like?

    I like HB's Megabites, they really hook up on our track.

    I have a new set of Hole-shots 2.0 I've been dying to try, I also have a new set of Snipers that I would like to try as well, oh race day today, but I have my son's birthday is today. I would rather celebrate Alex's birthday... HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEX !
    There's always next week to race, birthday's happen once a year.
    Does anyone know if Randy's in Somerset, KY runs every weekend ? Just let me know here...

    My top choices are for 1/8 buggy and for anything 1/10

    1) Pro-Line Calibers M3
    2) Pro-Line BowTie M3
    3) Pro-Line Crime Fighter (I know there are old but still work well)

    All mounted on PL Velocity V2 wheels with closed cell foam.

    now at Randy's track, Revolvers hooked up really well. Brian, the guy that helped me tune my motor, drove my buggy for about 5 minutes and he was surprised how well it was hooking up, he said "I wouldn't change anything, this car is Dialed !"

    I had to drive 140 miles to find the red clay track, let's just say I won't be going back soon if you know what I mean. I had to change air filters after every run ! Unless there is a "BIG" race at Randy's I will not return. Now I know why my buggy was the ONLY gas powered car there, it's impossible to keep the red dust off of the air filter...:mad:
