Read the post on "Luck" of which I have little, at least in July. I have had two right front flats caused by hitting holes and pinching the tube between the rim and the tire. I run good tubes and new always. Any suggestions as how to avoid this from happening? Other than the obvious and stay out of the holes.

Don't use tubes. We run the Hoosier E Mods and I don't know of anyone running tubes.

WHAT TIRE PRESSURE ARE YOU USING AND WHAT KIND OF TIRES ? WE USE THE HOCKEY PUCKS AND NEVER GO BELOW 16 PSI ON THE RIGHT FRONT.

That was my next step, not running tubes, we are on Hoosiers and run 12lbs in it. Have not until this year had this problem and always ran tubes.

we run those tires and 12 lbs seems low for the right front. I would air it up, because even if the car doesnt feel as good at least you'll finish the race.

I ran 12 for 2 years until a rough track knocked it off. Now never under 15. No
tubes, adds rolling weight.
