I’m starting this thread to answer any questions regarding the Solaris spec tires. So far Solaris tires were the spec tires of choice at these races:
Speedworld Cup (Speedworld Raceway)
TOP Gun Challenge (Norcal Hobbies)
ROAR 12 Regional Championships (Ripon Raceway)
Castle Classic (Norcal Hobbies)
and most recently the
KO Grand Prix (West Coast R/C Raceway)
The feedback has been very positive.
Tires are offered in three compounds soft (S), medium (M), and hard (H). All the races so far have been run on asphalt with the H compound tire.
The H compound has performed well in different temperature ranges. During the Speedworld Cup, the track temp reached 168 degrees and the tires performed flawlessly! At the ROAR Region 12 race one qualifier was at night where the track temp was below 70 degrees and they still hooked up well. In fact it was during that qualifier that people set fast times.
We are currently testing tire and insert combinations for carpet and will post results.
The wheels are being changed and we are incorporating something new. I'll be posting details and pictures of this shortly.
Here are some videos from races that have used the Solaris tire as their spec tire:
