EJ I ran your tires last weekend. The tires were conistent the entire time. I like the Solaris tires due to the fact that they are affordable, good longevity as well as good lap times.

Default WOW!

Many drivers ran the Solaris tires here this weekend at MID AMERICA RC RACEWAY. Everyone seemed to like them quite well. What was surprising to many was how fast they are. Examples below.

Jason Ertrachter ran 16.44's on SJR's / 16.22's on Jacco's / 15.92's on Solaris's H's

Chris Sitz's ran 16.5's on RP's / 16.2's on Solaris H's

Driver X ran 16.06's on RP's / 15.76's on Solaris H's

The Fastest Time of the Day was ran on Solaris H's

The TQ + Win were also taken on Solaris H's

Many others ran the Solaris tires as well and all had good results as far as I know.

Hey EJ.

I raced with the Solaris tires on a carpet race last weekend. It was fantastic.. It allowed me to TQ and win using them. I must say the solaris on carpet is as competitive as the Jaco Blues at the track last weekend....The solaris that I used though were not brand new, it sure gave me decent speed and grip throughout the race!

That's great Q! Thanks for the feedback.

Solaris H, M, and S, tires are meant to be SPEC tires, low cost, overall good grip, and, longevity. They were not meant to compete against the high end tires such as Sorex and Sweep EXP.

If Jason's going faster on Solaris tires compared to Sorex then his car isn't setup properly! LOL

Hi Kelvin, thanks for the report! I think it's just your superior driving skills.

C'mon Q & Ertracther, I know you guys wanna make the 18 hour trip to Denver next week! You can join the man orgy in my basement with the 4 KC boys.

Q, the pictures of your track almost make me wish I was back in the midwest. What a beautiful facility you've got there.
