I already spoke with Brian, he is bringing a few extra sets, and I have till that monday to tell him to bring me a set, but right now my budget forces me to try and find some take offs.

I should be looking for a sponsor!!!!!!!!!!!

Doh! I should've thought of that aspect. I think I have two sets and they're both crappy.

 

Can Brian mount and (attempt to) balance used tires? If so, and if you're still stuck as we get closer I might consider giving up 4 of mine if they're useable, at the event.

That would be cool, any tire is better than what I have now, I will call brian and find out about servicing used tires, I would imagine that it would not be a problem.

Hey Christine and Mike, I rebalance my used stuff all the time, 'cause I don't have extra sets of wheels, it's no problem and actually a very good policy.

 

See ya at CS.

Thanks, I am in a full scramble to get this thing sorted out before the race, it has not run since the event at Buttonwillow in november, and it had alot of issues there (1st race, new car gremlins) so not having to scratch my head about where I am going to get tires would be cool, ya know, you will be helping that frickin 4 cyl turbo that was stinking up the track in november (no joke the car about burned down) I had exhaust temps over 1600* roadracing a turbo car has been a real challenge, anyways, anything you can do would be great.

Mike - we all will have a few spare tires also, at the event, and most of us are running 17x9 rims with 6 inch backspacing. I think that is what you have last I saw you at BW in November.... So, you can focus on getting those turbo temps down.... And there will be good tire service there in any case. If you decide to run AI, the tire issue will be more important, but if you run AIX, we can probably set you up with a couple of non RA1 tires also.....

Mike, I've got 8 mounted tires right now all used. I'll be buying 4 new at Cal Speedway. I'll be there on Friday for testing so I'm not sure at what point I'll be able to hook up with the tire guys for my new ones. If you'd like, take my 4 used for $25 each--does that sound good to you? As we get closer to the event and I call to order my tires I'll ask for a specific time and let you know.

 

Cool? Lemme know.

PS the turbo 4 thing is very cool!

That's a deal, that is better than I was hoping for, I am not sure if I am going to make it on friday, but I will find you on sat.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No problem, I'll just take the useds with me when then mount my news and store them in the trailer or something.

 

Heck, it beats paying a "disposal fee", and having you buy them from me helps me buy new too!

 

Look for me with #29 in the garages, or just keep your eye out for a short "curvy" chick with dirty hands. Or PM me for my cell #.

 

WOO HOO we're racin'!
