Really tired of buying a set of Proline tires and all the foams have different consistencies. I like the tires but the foams are terrible.

I do believe they are working on it. I really haven't had nay problems with 1/10th scale foams, but I have had a few 1/8th scale buggy foams go dead. Send them an email, when they see how many people are having this problem they will surely fix it fast. Pro-line is always on top of it

The new foam is already out. The quality is better and they last much longer than the last batch. They're listening

Agreed, but it would be cool if they made the front of the body (and rear) by the body mounts thicker.

I'd like to see tire companies start washing their tires in a degreasing solvent before packaging.
