Not so. In the places where we don't have control tyres, Electric racers tend to use sorex or RP. At my local track, new sorex tires are faster but drop off quicky, whereas RP tend to last longer and are more consistent.

I also race at SoCal where the Sorex 36R have been the choice for years.

Went to the Tamiya track, outdoor, different temp, different traction, still works as a great tire.

I think it would be hard to find a place where the Sorex 36Rs didn't work.

We use Sorex premounts by Schumacher (36 or 32 ) on their excellent Revlite rims - they don't bend or break and can be thrown in Acetone to get the rims back later.

Broke my Cyclone rim on the first day, hit a Street Kerb.... so now will try the Nylon Schumacher rims and sorex 36 r tyres... does this sound like the go folks.... been told that the nylon oners can flex a bit, as i too like to hit things at high speed
Great advice, thank you.. oh , what does the acetone do ? melt the old tyre off ?
Just new to the sport, so all advice is good
Thanx all.

sorex's wheel are light weight, and those materials is from hard "plastic" because it's "hard" so no more flex when they hit something and make them break easily...."hard wheel" will make traction from tyre to ground more consisten than "flex wheel"...you can run Much More wheel..or speed mind...their perform very well.

Sorex 36R is the tire of choice back here. But TOP is turning a few heads as well (me included)...

not so happy with the speedmind rims as they're soft... just a few clips of the corners makes the wheels wobble. i prefer RIDE and EXCEL hard rims. tried the Much More rims but i think they're too brittle.

Sorex were the best choice when I used to run rubber on my gas TC, the best rims we found were the Yokomo rims, yellow or white, didnt break one in 2 years and the track is small for gas, and at the time it was full of 2x4s, so hitting stuff was easy.

My pick would be Sorex 40R and 36R for outdoor Asphalt in hot conditions (but 40R is in my opinion sensitive to weather changes - cloud cover above the track affects its performance quite a bit, but thats just my experiences with it in hot weather conditions).
Sorex 36R for warm night outdoor Asphalt works great for me.
Sorex 20R and 24R for Indoor Carpet are fantastic!
But overall I reckon, the Sorex's provides optimum grip for a couple of 5-mins runs, thereafter the grip level drops.
Also using Ride tires in hot conditions, slightly lesser grip but longer lasting.
Cheers
