Default Pin tyers

Just wondering weather anyone know's a good place to get good pin tyers. We race on a slipery surface here in australia and have just just found the Schumacher Mini Pins.

At the moment in Australia these tyers won't be avaible for another 2 months. Is there anything else that people can recommend? Slicks don't work at all, the tamiya M-Chassis Radial Tire at the moment seens to be the second best.

Just wondering weather you could use something like -

Would these work?

Any other brand people use to race on ice rings or skate rings? Oh yeah it's for 1/10 on-road

The tyres you link to are for a buggy, so wouldn't work in touring. Schumacher SST Minipins are what you need, the Schumacher rubber compounds are the only ones I know that will grip on slippy floors.

Perhaps you can order them direct through the Schumacher website www.racing-cars.com? Or one of the UK shops that deals with Schumacher may be able to do an international order to you.

MDL - I have a set of old SST rally tires if you're interested.
Not quite the same as the mini pins, but they're soft and basically unused.
(From memory - Will have to check them out when I get home.)

Might be worth a try..
