Robo, a Hoodie would be nice, although we are heading into our summer right now, temps 30 - 45 celcius. I like the idea of Aussie Chapter on a FB logoed item.

Managed to qualify a bit better (14th) at last weekends Cone Head Cup in Melbourne but ended up 17th. Should have done better really, it was head to head on a narrow course, so cone spray was an issue.

Grippins

I have recently been using a set of 84 Grippens as a rear set of wheels. At first they were 'fine and dandy' good grip, great speed and no problems. A few weeks of practice, one comp. and another few days of practice and the wheels have become slow as treacle, the surface is all grainy, and there is...

That all makes a lot of sense, most of the guys I race against are light weights compared to me, so I will persevere with the harder duros. Like you suggest, if I am running flat tyres I am gonna be slow. I will try and give the 84 Grippens a go on the rear this week.
