I bought 2 diffrent sets of rims. The ABC rims and the Kawada Mesh. Before I glue the rubber to the rims I would like to get this right. That way I can runs similar rims.

Here is what I have in the way of rubber.

2 - Tamiya 60D M grip
2 - Tamiya 60D S grip
4 - HPI M grips

4 - HPI Medium Inserts
4 - HPI Firm Inserts
4 - Tamiya 60D foam inserts
4 - HPI Foam inserts

What do you think a good setup to start with on asphalt would be?

Same here, I'm trying to find some 60D Type A slicks... can't find any at all the usual shops (R10, Champ, Precision, Speedtech, etc).

Not sure I can really quote on outdoor setups, as I've only used my mini indoors on the rug.
At a guess, I would still say double stufffing the fronts would be a good idea, and the S Grips would probably supply the most grip/highest wear for outdoors.

Default Tire Availability

I have not been able to find any tires in the US in stock, had to go to rctech in HK and place an order. Didn't have everything I wanted but some is better than nothing at all.
Sure wish someone would replenish stock soon or a lot of tracks are going to look like a "Cops" episode after we all ran over the spike strips. Rubber flying every where.

It is hard to reply to all emails when you are getting over 100 emails a day at times
