Spec tire is good, but that spec tires should be one brand in many tracks

YLB in Barnesville is not the best choice, IMHO. It is too soft and will need replacement more often than harder compounds.
Tracks have different quality asphalt and what is good (performance and longevity) in MMX, will not be good in other places.
If AMP's VEGA is a hard or harder compound, it will be a good choice for Barnesville.

Speaking of tires, since we moved to spec Mojo D1, I have 1 set of Mojo D2 (with 2 free spare Mojo D2 rears) for $50.

Maybe not a complete open tire rule, but allow the tires and compounds that the other tracks use? Make the driver declare his tire of choice so we don't start a tire war? What do you think?

I'm new so take this with a grain of salt but I'd like to be able to run tires that other local/semi-local races require. That way I don't have to have 5 different brands for 5 different tracks!

But if we allow open tires, then you will still need four sets of tires for all the tracks, since they have spec tire rules. We are the only ones to use the standard WKA tire, all the other tracks are the outlaws.

And they are selling them. If GSKA will allow some other brands, we effectively helping them.
I like spec Mojo tires for Rotax classes. MMX use them too, CMP is supporting Rotax. AMP is anti-Rotax. Funny, they had more rotax karts than X30 for their first race (judging from pictures only).

I'm just trying to get more out here to gska. I doubt any driver is buying tires for all the tracks, but if we could get some karts to come over to GSKA without buying new tires maybe that could help.

As far as the turnout, I hope we have more drivers plan on attending this year. With the tire situation, I think TAG should have an open-tire rule or if wee have one or more drivers and if they are on different tires, then we should see which one has the better wear pattern and durability and go with that tire.
Be it mojo, bridgestones, hoosiers, burris, maxxis, or vegas, what we need is a good medium compound, dependable tire that will last at least 2-4 races per set.

Guys,
As the Sr. 2 Cycle Director, I am open to changing the tire rule if it will bring more TAG racers to the races. For now, just come and race with whatever you have in tires. Just keep in mind that if you have non legal tires you will not be rewarded with points and trophy will be given to the ones running legal tires.

So, according to the 2013 TaG USA rules Mojo D2 are legal for TaG Jr running a Rotax Engine?

so in other words if all the tag drivers came on different set of tires and know one was on spec tires per GSKA rules and one of us wins a race then the winner will not recieve a trophy or points. HHmm come on tag guys we got this started so lets have some input before the next race. Ok Ok lets hear some noise.
