Default Twister Adherence Off-Road Buggy Tires

Just wanted to get some feedback from any fellow racer that has tried out these new tires available from www.twistertiresusa.com
We did previous testing @ the Rcproseries Rd 1 eastcoast division race that was held in avon park Fl
We tested 2 different compounds Soft & Super soft 1 team driver preffered the soft I was hooked on the super soft compound tread similiar to crimefighters M3
Here are some results Practiced all day with 1 set & used the very same set for 4 Qualifing rounds made the B main in Buggy used the same set for the 30 min main bumped up to the A main & after reviewing the condition of the tires used the very same set for the 30 min main the tire wear on these is awesome almost no wear at all will be using the same set @ the next upcoming money race to see how much life I can get from them
For those looking for Truggy tires they are under developement & should be around 5-6 months in the market

That's correct The owner of the company is an actual racer who believe's in providing a great product at a discount to get product awareness with the economy not looking so great it's very hard on the smaller company's but as racers we get to take advantage & benefit from it
I ran a hand me down set & used them for 4 qualifiers & 2-30 min mains after I clean up the clay off of them I will post some pics it seems that they don't wear out like other tires I ran. I ran the super soft compound & I am awaiting to get my hands on another new compound his getting in.
Will keep you posted when they arrive
Take advantage in his introductory price before the price goes up

I dont understand how people strip the wheels. I have been racing for nearly 5 years and never once had that happen. I have seen it on a few other guys rides but just dont know how it happens.

I've seen it happen to several people...using several different brands of wheels. Only happened to me once. If the plastic is a little soft and/or the wheelnut hole is a little over sized, it can strip out. Mine happened when I was tightening the wheel.

What kind of surface have you been running them on,wet,dry,clay,blue groove, fluff or no fluff......Al of this also depends on what kind of tire wear you will get
