    Thumbs up Worlds Thunder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you plan on attending the World Championship's at Port Jeff it's time to call Doug and pre order your tires. He is making a few hundred pair for the showcase but at last years World's I saw 350 pair go in a matter of hours. Racers traveling from around the world will scoop them up fast!!!!!!!!

    Over the past 6 months I have been testing and developing new breeds of tire compounds including Quad tires. We are excited about this evolution in all our foam compounds. Oh by the way did I tell you about our new GRH (Gerding Racing Hubs). These hubs are the best of the best for championship racing events available in .615 and .650 diameters. I will follow up with some photos soon.

    Call Doug Today 631 696-7721

    Bill, I think you need to have your "!" key fixed on your computer.

    Are you sending any of these tires to Skidmarks for testing?

    Perspective

    It is an Optical Illusion, the camera lens being close to the hub makes it look distorted.

    Thumbs up Tire Testing

    I was at the raceway from about 4 till 12 last night. I set up my pit spot and began the task of truing about 20 pair of the new Thunder/Nasa blend. That took some time with chinese food and smoke breaks with Doug, Larry and Erkle. Matt and Ed were also on hand getting ready to test the new tires and the refined power on the track. Yea see the Larry and Matt busted their nuts working on the power for the Gerding King over the last few weeks Around 9.30 Larry and I started breakin orange lane.
    From wet spray glue to koford medium we had at it then Ed and Matt joined in.

    Wow! I was blown away at how crisp , clean and fast it was. The new Nasa blend is increadable and we were flying. I was breaking in tires with my 27. I used a 14 mag setup that I ran 2 heats at Buena Park Western States race. It ran at best a 2.130 there in hot laps and raced in the high 2.1. Last night I ran it about 450 laps 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 50 50 50 50 breaking in and testing the new Nasa. Realize this is not even close to my best motor but the last 50 lap run I started of in at 2.065 and ended running 2.085 . I cant wait to get on the track today I am looking forward to trying the new Slick 7 27 Light chassis. Al Chuck gave it to me to test at Port Jeff and I think its gunna be sweet.

    Hey I gotta get my -ss to the track
