          Old Ortmanns available at Race Haven Hobbies.

          I have many sets available to anyone that wishs to race in the series.

          They are $9.49/set and if you need them mounted and trued its another $5.

          I have also been promised that I will have as many as I need for ALL of the competitors.

          Thanks,

            Now that you say so - who is supplying them to you?

            Ron,

            Someone has a hoard - as with any unobtainable product - you drew yourself into this - I apologize - a source?

              I have a source for this series. The organizers have sorted it out and made the tires available to me, to sell to anyone that runs in the series. I supose its kind of a bonus as the tires should last longer than 10 races, in the end you end up with your unobtanium.

              It is known that the next time this series is run, a tire change is inevitable.

              I personally feel there are many many tires that work very well on my track, maybe even better than old ortmanns. For now we will run on the old ortmanns and anyone is welcome to them if they are going to participate.

              Hope to see you soon Art.

              and btw, I love your track, I hope to make it out to a club race some time.

              Best regards,
              Ron

                    My only point is that multiple distributors or sources keep the playing field level, especially when the owner(s) of that source race in the series. That's all. Everyone knows who is selling you their older stock so no need to answer... you are the retailer hosting the series so you know best...

                    Cheers!

                      Hi Art,

                      Well then maybe next year the series will be an option for you. I am pushing, and I did this year also, to run the series on the Slot it S2 tire. The guys that are currently involved in the series (about 15) all voted to use the ortmanns. It was not any single persons choice, it was the entire club that spoke.

                      If it would make a difference, I can hand you the big bag of ortmanns and you can hand select the set or sets that you would like. This is the same for anybody that needs tires for the series.

                      I can say for certain that I do not know whats best, we are all trying to figure it out as we go.

                      Fairness is tough in the racing world, but we are always trying.

                      Best regards,
                      Ron

                        It's tough in a bubble these days...

                        Ron you hit the nail on the head.

                        I was not able to make the meeting so I can only benefit by your recap... if the question was 'old evil' vs 'unlimited' then I would have voted for the old evil too... but if any other tyre was thrown into the mix then I would have considered it just to level the playing field... especially those that you could obtain directly for all of us...

                        That being said, rules are rules, so I'll take 14 pair of the tyres given to you... I can spin by on Thursday to pick them up after a falafal and do some practice laps too on your awesome 5 laner...

                        BTW, if you ever go out for lunch try out 'Sam's Pita and Grill'... good guy Sam...

                        Cheers!

                          LOL....sounds good Art.

                          Where abouts is Sams Pita and Grill? I am always looking for a new spot to eat.

                          And yes.....the 5 laners is nothing short of awesome, come on out and you can have at it for free since you have not been there yet. I like to make everyones first visit free of charge.

                          See ya thursday,
                          Ron

                              perfect.

                              I'm pretty good with the gas trucks. Should be easy.
