Didn't know wich tires they used but they were the only one I guess that didn't need to change the tires.
Other teams need to replace them many more!

It was a Tamiya profiled tire.
I don't know the exact type. Will post that later.

This was my 8th endurance race

tire's :Tamiya M2 Radial tires.

But tires are not the only problem. 5-6 hour with 1 12 turn motor is also a nice challange. 35+ pack's and still having power

The last couple off lap's we could still powerslide and we did it

I like endurance racing.

Yes Jan de motor was absolutely amazing, itís your secret but very very nice. Iím opening up the motor tomorrow and I expect the brushes still to have a nice gold color. The motor was after 5 hours still hand warm. And yes, after 1464 rounds also still capable to power slide and the fastest motor on the track
