Thanks for the kind words about Gecko Tires. Obviously being new there has been many questions about their availability. They can be found in our on-line store at www.teammarketingamerica.com
and also Ebay. Soon we will have the Gecko Tires in selected hobby shops throughout the country.
I would like to keep this thread going so the founder of these great tires can answer any tech questions that racers on RC Tech may want to ask him. These tires are not like the conventional sheet foam tires that everyone has been using. The manufacturing process is completely different with the biggest difference being the entire tire patch is the same shore from edge to edge. They are not gradient and do not have glued joints. This is what gives Gecko Tires the grip levels that exceed present foam tires. Our process of gluing the Gecko Tires to the rims is what makes our tires peel resistant so we don't need to have the harder rubber on the outside of the rims which takes away from grip. These are without doubt the future of RC foam racing tires.
The new Competition 53 carpet tires are a must try. You will have to do some changes in setup and driving style to get use to the new found grip. However most all drivers haved had positive success and lower lap times with Gecko Foam Racing Tires.
I hope everyone gives the Gecko Tires a try. We know that not everyone will want to use them, that is just the way it is. So this thread we will keep positive and for Tech Questions for racers using Gecko Tires.
