The new 1/12 rims look sick, worth every penny.

Hey you might start a ruckus here, or a rhubarb with that kind of talk!

I see you are trying to catch Marcos J by posting some ridiculous posts. Why don't you wait to see what is presented to the public instead of making negative comments about....get this.....A PRODUCT THAT HAS NOT EVEN MADE IT TO THE MARKET YET!! Why people do this is beyond me. Everyone has an idea as to how things should be done and how much they should cost. You forget that in the end, even though we play with toy cars, this is a business and pays bills and puts food on people's plates. Try having a more open mind and look at ALL situations from both sides. In the end I am sure you will be able to make a much more educated decision on what you buy and why you buy it.

All right....what did you do with the real Mitch? lol.

Some of the distributors have the 1/12 tires already. We are shipping and have plenty in stock. I know it is not the season, but it's just around the corner.

Hey guys,
Mitch is a cool guy.. He likes to buy tires in bulk to save money and to help out all the guys who run at Socal..

We all know to go to Mitch if we need something because most of the time he will have it.

Thanks Mitch

The new Rubberzz in the blue "32" compound are perfect for med to low grip applications,,,,,,They worked well for me at the Glen Burnie charity race(parking lot) I found them to be too stuck at the Colisem(indoor asphalt),,,,I can't wait to try them on carpet,,,with Horsham staying open ,,,that will be soon.

Rumor has it that these tires are designed by Josh Cyrul....I cannot wait to run these! Rims look awesome.

What is next 10th? Nitro - 1/8th or 1/10th? Want them all!

Trying to get the grip we demand out of rubber tires for a 3.1 lb car requires very soft rubber compounds, especially compared to full-size race cars. It's no surprise they wear out as fast as they do.

The only way I can see having tires that give similar grip levels with much less wear is to go to harder compounds, but wider tires...say 28 mm.

I see a potential market for 'spec' rubber tires that last longer. They don't have to be as fast as first-run RP30s if the club forces everyone to use the 'spec' tire.

Jack,
Thanks for the new tires.

Now, how about updating your website with information on the new tires and some pictures too. How about adding the shore rating chart (and rubber type, if different) to your site as well! It's been missing for years. Posting the info here is ok for the short term, but please update the website as we all know where to find that. Finding the info on your web site is much easier and more official than digging through a bunch of forum posts with a lot of mis-information.
