Default HB Gumball Tires

http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....oducts_id=1412

Has any one tried the HotBodies Gumball tires. Ive only seen it on this one site over seas and no reviews any where.

What is the usual life span and still be competitive?
Is there good tractions with these tires? If so what temp. do u race in?
Just any information that you have on these tires will be greatly appreciated.

They are intriguing at that price, with potential to be a club spec tire. But, no one has posted experiences with them, and RP30s are cheap at rcmarket.

For that price, how could you go wrong, if anything, it'll be a nice basher set.

At 16.00 per set of 4 , I would almost consider running rubber. I sure wish they would make some foams at that price.
Heck of a deal. If they are a 27 compound.

Jochim, I enjoy my form of racing, and I'm glad I'm not part of your type of racing.

Are these the tires that come with the Cyclone S kit? If so they worked well for a local guy in our recent parking lot race.
