That is only about a dollar more retail than RP's, I believe. These will be available through distributors so the hobby shop discount structure will be the same as our foam tires. In other words, street price will be as competitve, if not more, than what is out there now.

This may eventually lower tire prices a bit then, which is good.

I wonder if this means new 1/10 foams are on their way too? On 53mm spoked wheels without the 2nd stage.

Hopefully at the same 15 dollar price the LHS has the new Parma Pro 53 tires. That would be killer.

Oh, Jack. You just became my new favorite person.

As long as the new wheels are tough (assuming they are on new wheels) then I'm on board.

Why rate the rubber tires yellow, green, blue and orange ?
Why not use heat ranges ?
Thanks.
