Default Panther alternative

Panther just released a new compound ("C" compound). It is available in the Switch tread pattern which is comparable to the taper pin. I haven't got a set yet but the buzz is that it works better then the pinks and lasts longer (pinks wear pretty long at the track I run at, and work better the more they wear until the track owner says take em' off, they're slicks.).
Check em' out.

hey nick, i just ran the switches at your track a few weeks ago in truck, and maybe my setup was a lil off, but they werent hookin up at all in l.i.r.,BUT ive ran your track only three times and cant seem to find a good setup, so like i said it coulda been my setup, but im sure u long island regulars could get them to work!

I run at Intermountain Raceway in Magna, Utah. Pink tapers seem to be the tire of choice there and they usually have stock on hand. I know they had some last week. Call them up.

Default Somthings up at Losi

Not sure what but I race at Hometown hobbies in Vancouver. We use red taper pins about 98% of the time and guess what. The shop has had them backordered for at least two months. I had to scrounge around to get some fresh ones. For that matter they cant get Ass. parts either for the b4/t4. Those servo saver parts are like gold.
