    This should answer how wheels fall into the scale of what one should purchase first with a few tips also.

    In anycase I do race at Kissena and T-town is a really nice track.
    I will not give advise on the wheels except to say search the board for the topic on "wheels for a new racer" and my guess is that it will match the thread I posted here.

    FYI, The guys who do the clinic are really a nice bunch of guys and I am sure they will concur.

    H+ makes about 6 different rims and sealed bearing hubs range from Quando all the way up to Dura-Ace.

    You're just getting started, and you're learning. and Kissena is a track that you gotta learn. it's okay to race on training wheels for a while.
