Tire wear is suprisingly good! I use med/soft Komodos in the dry and they tend to rip out tread fairly quick but crimes and stuff last ages. A set of Angle Spikes that are on my car in the pics will last ages as well, they are the only tire for the wet when wet astro = skating rink.

This is my friends Losi same day to give an idea how wet it was. He did finish the race...



If you get the chance to race on astro try it... think outdoor carpet!

You should get there tomorrow and break in your engine while racing

We are building a dirt track there as well behind the Astro...

Some pictures here of the initial stages.
