The new ones seem to run identical to the old ones on asphalt.
I have much respect for your previous posts on a number of topics on these forums; but, you are absolutely off base about this topic.
Everyone (yes everyone) running new RP-30s at NorCal Hobbies asphalt track today suffered unbelievable tire wear at 2-3 minutes of a 5 minute run with 13.5, 10.5 and mod motors. And the failures included sponsored racers in all the TC classes. Outside temp was about 60-65 degrees F with track temp never exceeding 95 degrees F during the day.
Otherwise, my Phi had no issues when shod with older RP-30s from a few months ago.
I have returned my unused packages of "new" RP-30s to NorCal Hobbies for a refund. Hopefully, this is only a batch problem; but, I am amazed that it is happening with a product that I previously regarded as "the best".
Yes, I did also experience problems with out-of-round sets Jacos at the Omaha Nats too.
