Default Question about Losi Eclipse's

They have a red dot on one side, what is that for? does it go on the inside or out?
Will anyone else be using these at the Psycho Nitro Blast ?

I believe that dot means that the tires are Red Compound. I'm pretty sure that's how losi shows the compound of the rubber in their tires.

The red dot is to show where the valve stem is to be located when mounting........

JOKING! I believe it is the compound also, but not sure. It doesnt matter if it is on inside or not. I think there is only writing on one side of tire, so it depends if you want letters out, or not.

This would be a good tire for the PNB event. These tires generally work best when dry, abrasive, and somewhat warm though.

It may get dry and hard there but thing is it will be cold. Something in M3 would maybe be better.
