Has anyone heard that Solaris tires are no longer available? We were about to start running them as our spec tire but I got word today that Solaris and Much More tires are not available for import any longer.

My experience with the tires was awesome. We race on asphalt and the hard compound was the best, even in cool weather (by Texas standards). I heard today that we can't get them any longer.

Has anyone else heard this?

I hope not. These rims are very durable and perform well. This is the first time that I've heard of the rim rubbing on the suspension. Is this on the E4?

Have not heard that. I just ordered a few sets 2 weeks ago from TOP and haven't received any notice from E.J. that they wouldn't be available anymore.

This is not true at all. At least for Solaris (not sure about MM). We are doing quite well and have plenty in stock.

Actually we just expanded our line to include a higher end tire called the "SP" series. They provide a little more grip then our spec tire. We will offer them in 3 compounds SP30, SP35, and SP40. I'll give more details about this later.

I really need to update our site www.solarisrp.com LOL

That is great news. If you can supply tires I would like to get our LHS to set up an account so we can get a reliable supply of them.

How do we get in touch with you

For carpet racing use the Medium tire. I can tell you from experience they last longer than any other tire for carpet racing.

I replaced my hard set when the tires wore through to the cords. I only run 21.5 spec with my Tamiya 416 so I'm not a premier 17.5 boost driver...I think you run 17.5 so I bet the tires don't last as long.

I ran my first set for 2 months, with practice at WCRC 2x per week and 4 race nights.

Several guys at my local carpet track are running the Softs, and are turning as fast or faster than the Sorex guys.

I can vouch for these tires. I bought a set of softs to run on our carpet. I practiced with them for many hours at our track all during the week. When it came to race day I put on a set of JACO blues for the quals. After the last qual I noticed one of the blues was torn. On went the solaris tires for the main and I ran the best I had all day and finished second with a slight on power push. Went back to the track yesterday, cleaned my tires and made one adjustment to the car. I turned 4 laps in a row of identical times with the last two being identical to each other but one tenth faster to the previous 4. I pulled the car off the track, wished that I had done this the day before and decided I was going to get some new solaris tires this week for the up coming weekend. The car couldnt have been anymore planted without traction rolling. I am trying to decide on mediums or softs. I think the mediums will be just fine but know the softs work. This is the tire I will be buying for our track, period.

If the traction is fairly high at your track i would go with the medium tire. The softs will wear to quickly. The medium tire is wha'ts been used at all big carpet races.

You will need to break them in a bit 2-4 runs.
