Yup, people complain the MuchMore tire only gets a couple good runs. The RP30 is good for exactly one run and then they are garbage.

That's where you learn tire management.
4 teched sets to get you through the quals and mains.
That's what they have run for the last 3 years and even the mod guys seam to make do.
Get Brett to show ya how to make them last.

Are you serious??? Were you around back in the days of proline S3's or that horrible H-13 tire???? That was a one and done tire. You can get more than one run out of RP 30's

I can roach a set of RP's in less than a run The Tamiya Track has become very abrasive lately and unless some serious pancake saucing and maintenance is done, traction won't be as high as it was three-four years ago when not a single spot on the track didn't have traction...Those days were dialed.

And after spending lots of money preparing for this race, don't you guys think the tires should be unlimited...I mean wouldn't it be more fun to have freshies every run...mmMMmm

I will put my 1 run RP's against your 1 run MM's any day and I'm sure the results would be the same

They are both great tires and I'm sure we will see some races on MM tires in the near future.

btw...We can roach any tire in one run with the wrong setup

Yup...my setup isn't exactly all that at the moment Again, this is mod...19T will be fine with reruns.

Edit: On a side note...RP's are great and hope that QC will be better with future batches.

That is what happens when you are doing land-speed runs down the front straight. Bet you cant hit 50 this weekend.

I'm agree with PW.They both are very good tires
They going to use the RP30 this year,may be is a good
news for some of the racer.Because they(or me) don't
need to change so much of the set-up for this race.
But may be next year.....
BTW Congrats to PW!
