sad to say that the yeah racing cheapo rubber tyre wear rate too fast, with 1 pack of battery on asphalt, its almost gone....

What can I say - you get what you pay for... The Yeah Racing tyres are very cheap, and of course they dont last...

On most tracks they don't even work!

We don't know how the Rides will last, the old ones used to last forever, still too early to tell with the new ones.

RC-MINI.NET ROCKS!!!

Can I have a sticker now?

No, really, a big thanks to Tony and everyone else involved. I've learned a lot from the site. That thing with the Mentos for motor break in...genius!!! I never thought my car could run that fast.

Yes. It is.

I would also like to know the best source for good (better than Tamiya) affordable tires.

Default Mentos

Tony, i found that if you cut the mentos in HALF it works better, something to do with the B/S as it comes out easier, and by the way, Go FIAT ABART

I tried the HPI Mini M Radials and they were horrible on carpet! I even sauced them and they were still bad!

Spook,

I found those HPI M radials to work really well on carpet, mind you I only fitted them to the front and ran Tamiya M grips rear. The only problem was you lose out on top end. Fitting tamiya M grips front and rear works great on carpet, from my experiences.

Later

Calvin.
