Good GT8 turnout this past Sunday at Corona. I think we had 7 GT8s show up. That was my first time at Corona in a very long time. Thanks Charlie B for putting on a great racing program for us to enjoy.

Missle, im a Alpha RC Factory Driver and help the factory as a link between them (Brazil) and rest of the world, so please dont hesitate on sending me any question about our tires : pato@alpharc.com.br

Now, regarding this "brushless tires", basically the idea came from our friends in Brazil who started to race "drag racing" with brushless GT's with high power motors and batts. So, this tires, now with racing in mind, dont allow the tire to balloon up due to high power of brushless motor, it comes with a very high grip compound and at same time doible belted on the inside for almost zero deformation during hard aceleration ...

Give them a try !!, you will love them ...

cya !

Is the high grip compound the same as the non-brushless slicks? If not, then why not only run the brushless slick with nitro and electric to give you the most bite on the track

Factory found that nitro based GT's doesnt need the extra belted and tire configuration as Brushless guys needed ...

Hello treborwd22 , this question i can answer, our Brushless Tires have the process production a little bit different than the our non Brushless Tires, so it's represent less production in the same time than the non Brushless, that's one of the reasons to have differents tires , another reason is the weight of the tires.

Brushless tires is 4 gr per pair more weighted when compared with the Non Brushless tires.

So basically, we recommend the Brushless tires only to brushless car's because when you push full throttle in a EP Car , the acceleration is more brutal than the GP Car's ,so you need a different tire to suport the force of your car to the wheels .
