Personal experience.... Proxies = Awesome

Besides that... have you ever considered 555's? I know a fair few guys around S'toon use them (since P+ stocks them), and have generally had great things to say.

I have the General Exclaim UHP they are a great replacement tire. They are cheeper then the stock lops and perform sligtly better. I hear great things about the Eagle F-1s

If I get used to envying others those parts of myself that I am proud of will recede from me.
