Anyone???anyone???bueller??bueller???
Thanks

I got mine from Amain and Carolinas RC. Amain had the wheels and the tires. Carolinas had just the tires but you can use the Proline V2 wheels. My order went in on Thursday to Carolinas and they were out of Soft City Blocks. For you to get them by Wednesday...........not without spending a small fortune for shipping. You could try pro4mance hobbies (724)409-4514 (no web site yet) That is the shop that keeps Mcculloughs trailer stocked (also one of the club racers)and he is very close to the race track.
Good luck
See you at the RAC next weekend

A couple of people had them yesterday at the Nitro Pit for the races. They seemed pretty hooked up. I'll give em a shot. The cityblock tread looks like a combo of Holeshot, crimefighter, and bowtie, and those are the 3 most popular race patterns, so they should be pretty universal.

Jaz - talk to Trevor - he can probably give you some insight as to which tread pattern is better. He's been running all four of the tread patterns so he should have a good idea of what works best at the "Pit." Just a little more information - I don't reccommend punching more than one small vent hole in the tire (this comes from Gil's observations). The inserts don't "breath" like a standard insert, so there's not a lot of air that needs to go in and out of the tire. Try it first and you'll see what I'm talking about. Also, don't vent the tires after they're mounted. The inserts will last from 10 to 20 sets of tires, so you can use them over and over. If you keep venting the tires after they're glued up, then the inserts will look like swiss cheese. ;-) Enough customers have already asked if they can buy tires without the inserts for a lower price because they've seen how long the inserts last, so the tires will probably be available soon without inserts. Please let us know what you think once you've tried them.

Will they sell the inserts without the tires for those of us that have left over new tires from other makers (who use poopy foams). For that matter, I have tires that have lotsa tread, but have dead foams. I doubt I'm alone there either, due to the afforementioned poopy foams...
