Rich, look at the Super Tires offerings for Lifelike.
They work for original wide G-Plus. .446, .448, .450 if memory serves me. Depending on the individual car, I use mostly .448 and .450 on my...

My experience:

Mean Green. When they're good, they're SO good. But, I find them all over the map. Many that spin up great wheels-up just don't have enough "umph" to get the car up to speed. Lack...

Good.
I totally get the tech block. I mean, the cars can only be so wide, etc. with track/lane width limitations.

What I don't understand is why there's such specific restriction on gear ratios,...

It's a gutsy move and should work great with thier braid pickups.
They carried over the Achilles Heel of the cars, though - the weird tapered guide blade.
