Bump!

I just want to keep this thread in sight and see if Pro-line has the nuts to address this issue.

Here it is the beginning of the indoor season and I still have to worry if the Panther Switch 2.0's I ordered will have good foams. So, I had no choice but to buy Pro-Line grey molded foams.

I just wish GRP made a good indoor tire cuz I'd run them in a heartbeat!

I sure wouldn`t be using Proline foams . I have a set of switch 2.0s with stock Panther foams and a set with Ofna yellow foams and when the track gets try towards the end of the day I prefer the stock Panther foams .

With all due respect, you don't race at Leisure Hours and are not familiar with what works there.

Well , I used to run there a lot and I race at a track that has near the same track conditions as LH . Also Where the heck did I say I was talking about LH ? Not everybody races there .

It's not. But I know what runs well at my track. Frankly, I wish GRP sold their GM102A orange foams seperately in the US.

Did I say anything about what works at LH ? Don`t think so . You were questioning about foams and I gave you my opinion on what works for me on our indoor track and since the tire for both is the same and foams would be close . This is the exact reason why I don`t go to "your" track . I live 35 minutes away from LH and travel 90 minutes to a different track that doesn`t have all the attitudes LH does . Of course there is no problem if your in the track director`s [will leave name out] fan club .

guys not to be rude.. but Guys can we take this to a pm.. and you can have your battle..
This discussion is over the foams and mainly there unsatisfactory performance and a company that seems not to care!![/B][/B]

The ofna yellows are very similar to the stock proline molded feel!!..and we all know what works for one may not work for another...

i bought a bunch of dual density pro line foams 1 year ago for a big race since everyone was out of bomb ones. every set was blown after 1-2 runs and the tires were brand new still. i opened one up and it looked like a rat had lived inside the tire and just ate evreything. granted this was 10th scale electric, i guess it is just good to know to avoid all their foams if at all possible. just sucks to have to find the tires you need then go searching for foams that will work. maybe they'll pull their head out soon and release a quality product.

I know the open cell foams are crap, but how about their gray molded ones? I just bough a bunch of new tires and they came with the molded ones. I'm curious if I should still stick with the Ofnas or give them a try. By the way, the gray Proline foam felt vey close to the Ofna oranges.

I posted earlyer in this thread that I no longer use pro-line foams but last week I made a trade. Part of what I received in the trade was a brand new set of Proline Crime fighters M3 & the guy had already glued them with the proline foams. At the end of the day I noticed that my buggy was handling oddly. Upon inspection, guess what. 1 front tires foam had turned to dust. Never got them wet, never washed them & there where no holes in the rims or tires and the track was dry.

I think Proline thought they would get more business by selling foams that self destruct and people would just keep buying more .
