I've had problems with those rubber ones, they can get sucked under the chassis.

Tim I wasnt gonna worry about front tires since they really dont do much. Forrest corrected me on it. Its not that hard to put front tires on the car anyways.

Their just EXTREMELY SILLY!! Their no more than "sticker" fronts we use in Flexi's or  GT 12~!! They aren't really tires---their made of plastic---wouldn't roll or support the car if you had to try to use them!!  At least with sticker front tires--it LOOKS like you have a front tire!!  RIDICULOUS!! :)

is this just a SoCal thing?

Pretty much Jeff. Maybe they were trying to attract some of the SCRRA guys to race Group F as well, I really dont know. There really isnt a set of house rules for Group F printed out that I know of, but I could've missed them too.

During the initial talk of starting up a $100 wing car monthly race at BPR motors came up and it was decided to use the Hawk Retro since all of us in the group raced Retro CanAm and F1. We had motors already and, well, some were still fast but had worn to the point of not enough breaking power for the 90+ gram Retro cars... they were perfect for the wing cars.

At that point I don't think anyone had even heard of "Group F" at BPR.

14x38 or 39 to start. thats what we're running back here. RED FOX Shadow or O/S Corvette work the best on our King. We're also cutting .250 off the top of the side dams front to rear.

Amazing you race with retro Hawks. Amazing. But maybe I have misunderstood. My limited experience with retro Hawks is , uh, just s tiny bit underwhelming. But that's just me. My experience is as limited as my world view.

When we decided to get $100 wing cars going again at BPR the Retro Hawk was chosen because most involved also race retro CanAm and F1, where the Retro Hawk is the primary motor. All of us had RH motors that were still quick but had lost breaking power to manage 90+ gram cars... thus the light weight wings were a great way to use those motors.

Last night Chuck "Mr Vteck" Vaughn said he'd make chili for the July 3rd race.

If you were on the fence about racing... come on out, Chuck makes great chili!

I had a great time at the Wing Car race today.  Great turnout with 13 racers entered.  Chuck Vaughn's chilli was "smoking hot" but I'm told by my wife it was very good.  Here's a little video clip of today's action with Debbie's race report to follow up shortly.

Jason,

 

I heard due to the Super Bowl conflict ( watching the game and a 3 hour eating binge), the next Wing Car race was pushed back to Sunday 2/12 starting at 4 pm.
