Hi Dokk,
I imagine you're busy with the Slotblog conversion so I'll keep this short. :blink:

I just got some things from E. D. and among them is a pair of IG-3101 Indy Grips for your plastic 1/24th rear wheels.

I prefer to use the Alloy wheel w/ setscrew but I have not seen a ribbed wheel listed. Did I miss it? (or) Any plans for such?

Indeed but TSR never got around it yet because they had such a difficult time to get the tires they wanted to begin with. It WILL happen as soon as they resolve this issue.

They? TSR? Did I miss something while here under my rock?

I thought TSRF was you.

Is there a new web-site for "them"?

And ... What tires do they want? The IndyGrips are exquisite on our clean (no glue) routed, epoxy painted track. They only recently have been eclipsed by Mauricio's S2 compound and then only by .001 sec. or so.
I know that the target market for these are probably plastic track users more so than routed but is there something better than those I mentioned?

TSRF was sold last year to my original business partners and I am now merely an engineering consultant for the company. I do not know of their plans at this time, but I am sure that they did not purchase my interest just to finance my personal charities. :D
The name of the company DBA changed from TSRF to TSR in the process.
