This will have no effect on the Worlds
Rafael (a.k.a., Florida's Little Black Rain Cloud) - This is an old rumor. We asked TakeOff about this at the Chicago Show last year. They said it was partially true as a manufacture of one of the components of the rubber mix used in popular R/C car tires will cease production due to the fulfillment of a government contact within the next few years.
All tire manufacturers are always working on new things. They are not particularly concerned about this as there are always alternatives.
Regardless of this the R/C industry will not be affected for at least another year or two. It will certainly have no effect on the Worlds.
