yeah i think most the top guys did at the start of the last winter, i think it was lawson who went to yellows frist and then every one followed

JUST TO ADD

remember its 4wd fronts they where runnig as BB dont make 2wd fronts
and the brca rules state tyres must be commercially available so 2wd front BB spikes I believe will not be aloud.

I mounted my BB 4wd fronts the same as we did the losi 4wd front @ tivy on my 2wd

What are u asking me for? I'm shit at Kiddy!!

However, fishtailing on the straight is pretty easy to do Neil, so yeah, you've gotta feed the power really smoothly!

The link that Wraggy just posted will probably do the trick as well

Thanks for that Carl. I usually look out for the travelodge deals, 15 or 26 pounds per night, although they do have to be booked quite far in advance to get the best deals, and don't include breakfast, although many places don't start serving breakfast until after we have to set off to the track.

Me and Greenwood are booked into the Hartlebury Travellodge, its where we stayed last year. But if forecast is wrong and weather appears to be dry, we are both tempted to camp.

Im ready for Kidderminster now, have both cars setup rather well for Bury which should be a good setup to start at Kiddy on, and I have plenty of Schumacher Yellows if dry.... I won't buy BB tires til required, I hate it when I gamble and get it wrong. I have enough 1 run BB (old compound) green spikes to start the day on anyway.

Chris dude, surely any front is allowed, as long as it's not a cut & shut?
Or do I need to re-check my rule book (again)?

Or is it, like, as-in Girls Aloud?

Rule 23.7 - Hmm, looks like the Welsh Spelling Champion may be correct.

As for the ginger one - oh yes.

I quite like gingers. I thought that ginger was second best spice.

(Quoted exactly from the handbook)

Page 40, rule 23.7
Wheels and tyres must conform as follows:-

No form of metal or plastic spike, tubes or anything similar to be attached to the tyres. Maximum diameter allowed is 90mm front and rear. Only commercially available wheels and tyres may be used.


This wording is not past tense, its talking current by the grammar although it doesn't specifically state "Currently Commercially Available" or "...Available on 1st April 2007" or anything to that effect.

This discussion needs to be confirmed by Paul Worsley or Phil Truman before anybody presumes wrongly.

Chris
