I have noticed Much More has like 3 different part numbers for warmers any ideas as the differences?

Also what does everyone like for warmers?

Their top of the line IC Controlled CTX-W warmers, are IMO the best produst they have in their line up. Heat up quick, great tire cups and easy to adjust with a convenient car stand, great product.

I think he's referring to three different cup sizes. I'd like to know which sizes are best for which tires too.

I use the cups that came with the unit, I wrap my tires when warming. The tires I run are Sorex, Rp's and Tamiya's, have had no problems with the cups being too tight or loose.

Default Foam use?

Are tire warmers useful on foam tires, for either carpet use or asphalt?

The 2 main sizes by Muchmore to use with a 7.2V to 13.8V power source are:

#MM-TW - black larger size cups for Sorex etc - approx. 65mm diameter
#MM-TW2 - blue smaller size cups for RP, Take Off, Tamiya etc - approx. 63.5mm diameter

These 2 systems mentioned above can be used with the #MR-38EV temperature controllers.

The #MM-CTXW is the IC controlled Tyre Warmer system that comes with the black larger size cups. The IC system is also available in Blue, Purple or Black.

The cups for the #MM-CTXW system are available separately too:

#MM-TW3 - these are the blue smaller size cups but with the cables to fit the MM-CTXW system.
#MM-TW4 - these are the black larger size cups but with the cables to fit the MM-CTXW system.

Hope this helps.

Keith.

If you get the black can type ones, the 65mm diameter ones, will the RP's and Take offs be loose or do they still fit pretty good?

Is the little Muchmore 3080 or 3080EVO tire warmer controller still available? Only thing I can find is the CTX-W and I'm not too excited to buy a $200+ tire warmer.

I use these cups on RP tires all the time, no problems. I coat my tires with Tire Tweek, then wrap the tire with a blue papershop towel and let the sauce bake in, works great.

I have the Andy Moore Edition MM-CTX-WP otherwise know as the IC controlled Tire Warmers, all the CTX-W units have the 65mm (larger) cups, these work with every size tire out beacause once you apply your traction additive of choice (I like Paragon Ground Effects) you should wrap the tire in a peice of blue paper shop towel which does a couple of things it keeps the additive on the tire by soaking up the excess, after using the same peices for a while they will have enough additive soaked in them that you wont have to put much if any on the tires, and using the shop towel you can size the tire to have a snug fit in the can. Hope that helps
