my local Hobbytown order some for me yesterday they were unmounted. I race some premount 28's on my 17.5 touring car and they worked great. Hobbytown here is starting to stock a full line of ride tires.

The Dynamite tires were old stock from what I remember and thats where they are different....also the Dynamite tires did not last on asphalt like the tires we got from Ride. The Dynamite tires were maybe a softer compound as they wore out faster on carpet even.

We understand the availability issue with the HPI tires and we are looking to counter act that with going with the Ride tires just based on their life span alone it should help, plus an actual person who is intouch with racing needs heading this up will also help. I hope we can have full info for everyone after the iic.

hey guys. the realistic car has been bugging me recently. how does the Tamiya radials handle compared to slicks. I know that they wouldn't grip as much compared to slicks. on the point are they no better than rtr tires? thanks

Default USGT Body

Hi, This is the body I use in USGT. It is overlooked by many USGT drivers and
it is completely legal. Excellent handling and downforce. Regards

Here's the combo I've been testing and have been extremely happy with, I don't think I'll ever go back to HPI Belted Pro X-Patterns even if they do come back in stock:

@Norman,
Who makes that body? It looks like a Tamiya. Very nice work on the livery and details.

Hi Scott, The body was made by Kyosho and it came with an EP Fazer kit.
I was lucky and was a able to get a spare body. Unfortunately this kit is
no longer available. I think the Ferrari 430 and Mclaren GT1 are still available on some E-bay sites. Regards
Norman
