    I know this series is several months away, but as rules get firmed up the page needs to be updated:
    — Correct tire/wheel spec (SC-2012)

    ?? Since ceramic bearings are prohibited, can we also spec that ‘open’ metal ball-bearings are also prohibited?

    — Should we name allowed bearing lubricants?

    Mark – Before I update the rules with the new wheel/tire selection I want to confirm that they will work as I hope they will.  Once I have some laps with them I will update the rules with the exact wheel/tire spec.

    The only bearings that are allowed are the stock closed bearings.

    Lubricants?  Use what you have.  No need for rules regarding lubricants at this time.

    The new Scaleauto RevoSlot wheels/tires have arrived.  I will be testing them over the next few weeks to see how they perform and will update everyone on this forum.  Can’t wait to try them.

    Pendle has these available now. Three sets and shipping is just over $20.

    OH…and is there anything special that needs to be done to true these? I see that the RC tire truers use a blade instead of a grinding surface.

    In my 1/24 days, we never trued foam tires…you bought them the diameter you wanted, then installed and ran them at speeds up to 70 mph, so they were true out of the canister. But that was a really long time ago, now…

    Ugh…use care when ordering. My brain seized and I ordered the tires identified in the currently posted rules (RS-204) even though I KNEW we were supposed to be getting the Scale-Auto tires shown above. A case of old-brain disease. That’s why I was hoping Marty’s tires didn’t have the red stripe today, because neither do mine! 🙂

    Oh well…I rarely trust my brain any more, and here’s yet another reason to let it out to pasture!! At least I have a few months to rectify this issue. Anyone want some Revo Slot foams?

    I would like two pairs if you have not already placed your order.  Thanks!

    Porsche Navision TSW blue, silver, and yellow renumbered to # 68.  (I reserve the right to purchase another car if the Porsche is not competitive.)

    After running both shore 30 and shore 25 people I found that the shore 25 tires provided better grip and did not show any excess wear.  I have eight pairs of these shore 25 tires arriving Friday and will have them with me at the track on Saturday.  I will arrive early so people have time to true up a pair before we race.

    All – I just received the order of Shore 30 and Shore 25 tires.  I have them sitting on top of my pit boxes.  Take what you need and just let me know.
