Default Ellegi foam tire question

Hi,

first I don't know a lot about foam tire. here at our track, I run Jaco Double pink rear and Jaco Double pink/orange front with my xray FK04.

I will like to know if ellegi are good foam tire and what will be similar to the Double pink and Double pink/orange.

I saw that ellegi are working with 37degre, 42 degre...etc???? and I can't find the ellegi web site.

THANKS for helping a newbie in foam.

Ellegi is a product of GRP(Gandini Racing Products) Those tires are more suited for nitro touring on asphalt. Since Hobbico is going to soon be the importer for the GRP line of tires, they are developing a lot of new products. I am sure that carpet foams will be on that list. A lot of the guys I know are having a lot of luck with the GQ foams in electric sedan. They are usually running pinks and tans. Pinks are a little bit harder than tans. GQ makes really good tires though.

go for 37 on back and 40 for front that is the middle way to go. Dbl pink/orange don't exist as outer edge is the same as all tire. So maybe you can go for 40 for front. I use elegi for asphalt racing and i use all from 35-45 but 2/3 i am driving 40front and 37back.
Hope that helped.

yeah but the price of GQ are pretty good and I really like there 1/18 faom tire. so I will like to try them.

I have sent an email to GQ and I'm waiting for there reply to see what will be the equivalent of the double pink and double pink/orange.

I don't want to buy something that it will be too hard or too soft because I will have to change my setting.

PS: where could I found cheap jaco
