the fella who started this thread is a mate of mine, we live in Victoria, Australia. ALL the tracks in this part of OZ are either hardpacked dusty or just plain loose dirt, it is rare to see blue groove. Calibers, revolvers etc are use less, the best option is I-Beams or tires with larger tread blocks

its funny. i started this thread nearly a year ago now and PL told us they were doing something about the lack of tread patterns

but instead of more treads we now have less

i love calibers but when they're on they're awsome when they're off you need to change brands which sucks

i really dont understand why they think there is no market for a crimefighter, bowtie or similar style tread. i get updates weekly from proline on facebook talking up new products. but all they aver seem to be are new sct bodies or tires. they really seem to have lost there way

I ran M3 VTR revolvers this weekend and they hooked up great on the wet loamy sand. It's a bummer they were discontinuing them.

Here are better pictures of the new foams accompaning the M3 Truggy tires, at least here in Japan. They are softer than the standard foams.

Great multi-surface racing tire, long lasting and very easy to drive!

I just bought some M2 calibers and they had this same new foam inside. The foam is really soft. I can't wait to run them and I want some of the new revolvers too.
