This should be fun. Now instead of pro-rating tires I get to contact all of our contracted renters for the season trying to explain to them we need to break our contract and DOUBLE thier already agreed upon rental price, as their expense for a "competitive car" doesn't even cover tires for the weekend now...

So glad I was chastised a month ago when I originally brought the issue to light.

Will this just be for 2011 to deal with the issue at hand or will this change the tire rules within the class moving forward period?

Not sure there is anyone here to blame Nick.

Just an unfortunate situation. Your customers will have no choice in the matter. Just like the rest of us.

Erik and NASA have been working on this from day one. They were unfortunately dealt a bad hand and have to do whatever they can to make it work.

Your individual region can have an agreement to not run Hoosiers. That is what I will propose to So-Cal this weekend.

I do think it is important to have a spec tire for Nationals though. If it is the Hoosier then so be it. So long as we know far enough in advance to test and tune.
