Scott,
No mention of independent front wheels. I think in the past this was not allowed. Just wanted it clarified since I have seen it mentioned in other proxies. Bruce's goal when the series started was to keep it simple. I have independent fronts on 1 of my cars in another proxy this year. Well actually 2. My stock Cuda has independent factory fronts. Not the best because of the side to side wobble.

Arrold,
It so not something that has been previously been addressed in the recent rules... I haven't looked through all the previous 12 years though. Unless there is an outcry to make a definitive ruling on it, i hibknwell leave it as it is. If anything, maybe keep the COY with locked fronts and allow COT with independent?

Default Axles

The rule states that axles may be stock or aftermarket. So, in essence, stock independent or stock stubb axles would fall into that category. I agree to leave as is.

I thought "hibknwell" was just a word from the NEPA language or some kind of code word

I believe it was supposed to be "think we'll"

Check out "haynabonics" on YouTube if you want to hear some of our NEPA made up words... that's the heratage of the coal mines

ALS,
Look at this thread. It list all of the YellowDogs/SuperTires in the 1400 Series.
http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...t=99234&page=2

The thread also contains what I have been running since we went to the rear tire requirement of YellowDogs. Front tire can remain stock or any Mfg. If you go to small on the front the tires will not touch the track surface. You might be able to go with a 1402 but I use a 1403 on the front and 1404 on the rear.

Tires: Rear, Super Tire Urethane 1400 series tires required. Front, stock or aftermarket allowed. Zero grips allowed. Glued and trued tires allowed. Front tires must contact the track while car is in the slot and tires must roll when given a test push. Front tire coating with any substance is not allowed.

Arrold, Thanks for jumping in with the links!

I have started a new thread specifically about the tires. You can find it at the following link... I feel this is a question that comes up yearly, so instead of burring it in the rules post we should make it easier to find. Check it out at the following link
