not to be argumentative, really, but all the big teams have tried them before.

I recall trying some green ones awhile back, Panther I think made them, I thought they were too dense for the weight of the car and reduced traction. I actually got better results from using spray adhesive and gluing a standard foam insert to the inside of the tire (not ROAR legal).

Anyway, good luck, I would just like pre-mounts, all my customers come to me to glue up their tires so pre-mounts would save me time and work

+ 1 losi has some premounts but they are step pins and a pair of fronts and i see people buying them like mad just because they dont have to glue them. there is some big money in making some good tires that are premounts thats for sure.

I have been using 1/8 scale buggy molded inserts in the rear tires of my 1/10 scale buggy for a while now. You just cut a section out and use a small amount of CA to put it back together they seem to work great.

Forget about molded foam, someone should make real tires/wheels filled with air/nitrogen like real cars

I would like to see 2 or 3 piece rims so the foams could be changed. I used to run indoor/slick and the foam would sack out while the tire and rim were perfectly usable. You could bake off the tires and replace the foam but they didn't work as well after that.

associated did that in the 80's and 90's. the only real benefit was to run them on the front with steel screws for weight to get better steering on the old style rc10's. everybody still glued the tires on...

I know they did, I was using them. That's why I know they work. It would be fairly easy to make wheels that would were lighter than those.
