It's always best to be on tires you don't have to ask advice about. I say spend the bucks and get on rubber that you know are good for you. Anything new is a good place to start.

don't ask mark about the tires we started on . go to the next race and talk around and find you a good 100 buck set  if you can't afford new

Hahahaha. Ok, point made but advice given is always best to be more sure. It always happens where I give advice to save a few bucks, the rider crashes, and I get blamed for bad information.

For me, I have confidence in whatever tire we choose. I just know there are limitations and ride within them. That's why I am not that fast.

F3Racer,

I'll vouch for him - Ben's a good resource on a lot of racing issues - especially race bike setup.  And he lives in STL.

I use to pick on him quite a bit, but he's starting to come around now that he's no longer a teenager!!  :ass:   :biggrin:

(and as a pre-emptive strike...... disregard anything 'BackMarker' may come on here and post.  He's still trying get his meds balanced out after he went through that pre-frontal lobotomy!)   :ahhh:
