They're probably not the BEST option, but we always used to run the kit tyres on carpet for a cheap option. Once the tread wore down to slicks on the front, the cars handled quite well.

Hey,

I have a question about the silvercan motor.

I have entered the FastCats Mini Enduro, 1000 Laps. Can the motor last that long or will it need cooling and if so what type of cooling? Do you have any advice on running a race that long.

THANK-YOU!
