Pre-mounts will always cost more as you have to allow for the labour involved (or are the tyres glued via some machine?)

It's not too hard nowadays to get a full set of Sorex or TakeOff tyres for around US$25 set.

Prices and availability are not yet known. I guess that preglued wil be cheaper though, as is the case with other brands.

So we can take it that it's a badged Sorex tire, as all temp rating's match.

How many actual tire Manufactures are there not companys selling/badging them actually make them?

From what I know it's not a Sorex clone. They are testing them for some time, they even run a cup in Asia with that tire as control one. On that race tire didn;t perform as they wanted to so they went back to R&D.

Maybe they use similar ratings so people wont confuce

Yea as a beginner I didn't know much about what tyres I should be using. Therefore, I have had a few tyres that ruined my competition. Take off tyres dissappoint me the most.

I have heard so much good news about the Take off tyres in the USA so I decided to get them. I race in Malaysia so the wheather is hot and humid. These tyres sucks at the track and I had lay my hands off take off tyres forever.

Then I tried HPI tyres. These tyres perform much better than Take Off Tyres. They seem to have the grip but seems to fade at the end of the race. Then it comes the Sorex tyres. I've only managed to test this tyre once and I loved them since. The best tyre so far.

For this Much More tyres, hope they would pack a punch like the Sorex tyres.
Well this is just my 2 cents and it might be my mistake for not setting up my car right.

I don't think "Maximum Breaking Potential" is exactly what they meant when they posted that ad... not exactly something you want to advertise if it is true

i don't think american drivers are trerribly enamored with take-off tires, but for some reason (namely they are premounts) they are almost exclusively our spec tires, so if you want to develope consistent setups, we run them.. i think most people agree there are better handling tires available...
