i just got my first set of the new 1/12th wheels.i am extremely impressed with all of the thinking that went into the wheel.it seems they have softened the inside wall of the rear and made it more rigid toward the center.im sure this is going to do alot toward adding more forward traction.i cant wait to get on the track with them.2 thumbs up jack

I just got a bunch of the 28's and 32's in. I won't get a chance to run any of them until Sunday. Can anyone tell me what to expect in terms of comparing them to RP's, so I have a reference to go by when customers ask which to get first.

I've run both the 28's and 32's outdors and they seem to hold up similar to the RP's. For me, they seem to last a little longer before they start to get the stripe of death on the inside edge.

From what I'm seeing, you can run the 28's until the track gets up to about 110 degrees. After that 32's are the way to go. The 28's will grain up if you run them much above 110 degrees track temp.

We've been using oil based traction compound (tire tweak, corally, etc.) and letting them soak for about 15 to 20 minutes before the run. Haven't been using tire warmers.
