Default trinity bomb one foams

just wondering if anyone is using these foams. if so do u need to trim them down for proline tires. also how are they compared to proline foam or any foams for that matter.

I dont know if there is any difference, but I have the bomb 1 and prline stockers in my 1/10 truck. The bomb 1s do not deterioate like proline foams do when i clean them and they are also better quality.

Proline foams suck as they don`t last much longer then a few race days . Bomb ones seem to last just as long as the tire does to say the least .

one downside imo to the Bomb truggy foams is the flat profile....unlike most molded or newer breed tires that have a rounded profile to them.....i found the bomb's to not fill the tire enough and make them feel gushy and overly soft...the only tires they felt real good in were the Stock XTT's which have the flat profile to them already.

I thought about using the Trinity foams for my Revolvers on V2. I have heard lots of nice things about them, like: They beat the hell out of PL foams.

But a set of the Trinity foams are more expensive than the AKA's, and i know the AKA foams rock!

The foams fit great in the tires and feel good . I traveled to a track I never been to before and said switches are the tire there on their forum . Got there the day before for practice and didn`t like switches on there track . That`s when I got the AKA foams and Hole Shots which turned out to be a better tire and really liked them .
