the arrow after the word bridgestone, i suppose it indicates the tire rotational direction. I agree with Barry, it looks weird.

Are you allowed to clean your tires? Use meangreen. can be found at dollor tree and dollor gen. works great for cleaning tires... and it makes them softer. but dont tell them that.

Ok I see it now. As much of a detail freak as I can be, I never realized that the tire logos were directional. Thanks for pointing that out. At first I was looking at the tires thinking I had mounted them on the rims wrong, but they really only go on one way with the Tamiya logo facing out, otherwise you get the ugly mold mark facing out

Maybe you want to check if the right rear wheel is correct? If It's Tamiya's fault because they print it.. Lol

Is that the groove that fourms on the inside edge of the tire? sad thing is i only have two 5min heats and a 7 min main on those rears. and the death groove was real bad on my 104f60 two nights of racing and the right rear had a huge grove down the inside edge.

you need to consider that, especially if you're track has more high speed turns in one direction over another...

plus it will help minimize the groving in the tires...

That is one uuuuugly esc! You would think being one of the oldest RC companies in the world they would have better electronic design. They insist on making esc's the size of small cities!
