has anyone tried out the TRG F103 rear rubber tires on a proper asphalt track? how's the performance like compared to Ride's rubber tires? seems like these F103 rubber tires are almost sold out everywhere, except Rcmart's left with the TRG's...

Don't be confused by the letter C as it also appears on other tags.

The HBR soft rears are more firm than these.

The fronts are HBR Medium, premounts or the donuts.

So, the medium fronts and the super soft rears are the winning combo for everything I run on, carpet and asphalt.
Just sauce the fronts as necessary.
1/4, 1/2... or no sauce on the front all!

I would think that the premounts are just a tire that Tamiya already has, but I'm not sure. Maybe they are both mediums, since the soft HBR I have run act nothing like the premount rears-softs have a weird, sudden break away on carpet. At the same time, the HBR medium rears I have tried always seem too stiff Maybe they are RM "kit" tires? The fronts do seem close to HBR medium fronts.

I have never seen "super soft"- is there a number for those donuts?

I bought a set of the TRG Superion rubber tires.

Good grip on the rear, too good. PUSH bigtime at high speed but seem perfect at about 1/2 speed.
NOTHING would get these to steer at speed.
I even cut apart the fronts (around the sidewalls) and put softer foam inside.
This helped a lot but still not good enough.
Bought Rides and problem solved.

Wanna buy my Superions with the softer insert installed?
Like new!

Only about 10 minutes total run time on em, had to at least give em a chance to break in some before giving up on em.

The part number for the 3/4 width Super soft rears is #9805476 and there were also full width but I don't have that number handy.

The Super soft compound, like the premounts and the 84095 is MUCH softer than the HBR Soft and of course the HBR Mediums.

Again, the 84095 is money $$$$$

since you're all talking about rubber tires - has anyone tried the HPI F10 tires on their F103??

Aside from the hex setup in the front of the F10, how well do these tires work and can you mount them on the F103/F104 rubber rims?

thanks for the input, i would like to try out your superions but i'm too far away from your location and the shipping costs will kill off the deal.

That sounds about right...that would be a super soft HBR though...both the front and the rear have the blacked out double star on them indicating a HBR tire.

I'm pretty sure they are a HBR tire...what specific softness I don't know. Probably super soft as the poster above states. Both front and rear have the blacked out double star which Tamiya uses to denote the HBR tire. They wouldn't throw just any old tire in on a special edition car. Tamiya generally uses their best stuff on special edition cars.

Not sure.
I know that f103 with the rubber trg tires that ran last Sat. (that guy was super fast!) had f104 l/r rear pod plates on it. So I would think you can get away with them. I am running the 3racing rear pod (side and rear wing plates) in my 103.
I might be going back to the plastic stuff (just keeping the motor plate) to save some weight.

On a side note... My car is still tweaked and hooking bad! I tried to run a few practice laps last week and could not make a lap without it spinning out.
Going to replace the t-plate this week.Hope it fixes things.
