The tyres are 75mm or 3" dia so less than yours but a lot wider. You can contact this guy

http://www.yeovilmodelcars.com/

He has the ATS tyres with a rubber cap for 1/8th cars

Cheers

I think when I talked to NicCase last month he told me he was bringing a whole NEW fleet of cars - might we see a 200MPH run?

HEY Nic, if you see and read this..have you considered renting one of those BOOM Lift type Man lifts so you get really get up in the air, and actually partly over the strip???

It would probably help with the radio range getting it up off the ground...and deffinately would help seeing more of the track.

We'll miss you at the VELODROME during our SUNDAY **ALLSTAR EVENT** but KIKAZZ in Fontana
