Our lhs has a bunch of them because they knew the supply was drying up (that's what Spooky told me). Where have you seen them online?

Barry,

You know that the Sportwerks tires are bigger than the Kyosho/OFNA tires. The diameter difference is quite noticable and you will have to cut out more of the wheel wells in the front in order for the wheels to steer properly. Just FYI.

Sorry, I think there is a miss understanding....

The sportswerk tire is not going to be legal....

Now I'm waiting to see what JSpeed comes up with his testing of other available tires is....

I tried the Sportwerks tires a few weeks ago.

The tread is nice and wear was good too. Much taller sidewalls, had to cut up a good body.

The Kyosho 55 shore V-Slicks are still the best fit so far for me.

This is Gmartinez using my firends pc the sportwerks tires are for the off-road Rally class. I am doing testing on the Kyosho tires & will be giving some input on the New Twister Compettion IGT tires that are highly used in Italy & all I can tell you that they are excellent & Wait till you guys get a hand on the Twister bodies 6-8 higher quality lexan grade over the Kyosho. Remember the Kyosho body is lightweight therefore on impact they crack for the average driver

Will try to keep you guys up to speed & get some pics when I have more details

If you haven't seen the video yet, here it is again.

The track is sprayed with a grape soda & sugar water mix. We have great traction because the surface is new & we have so many Kyosho Inferno GT cars laying down good rubber every weekend.

The Kyosho Inferno GT cars we race are very close to stock. Our rules allow a few mods like: diff & shock oil changes, set-up changes, Kyosho Optional suspension pin holders & toe-in blocks, upgraded brakes, electronics and we all run on the Kyosho 55 shore V-Slick tires.

We have most of our IGT Spec class cars are running within 2 seconds of most 200mm nitro sedans. We all help each other to go faster because we want everyone to see that the Kyosho Inferno GT a fun & cost effective form of RC racing.

We'll be going to the US Open race in April and will try to help anyone with a Kyosho Inferno GT too.

How do the cars in this class feel compared to a touring car? Are they as quick and nimble? Do they feel heavier? Are they easier to predict? I am intriguied by this class, but just curious as to how they feel versus a 200mm touring.
