You ordered the 'Super Slicks' or the "60D Type As" ?? The later will be better for carpet. But if thats tamiya tires, I'll recommend the 60D M-Grip radials for carpet.

I ordered Tamiya (#53215) M-Chassis Slicks, don't know if those are what you call 'super slicks'?

16 and 8 tooth ... too slow

20 tooth is the fastest Mini



BTW ... your signature ? "Time heels a broken heart?"

Default CONGRATS TO THE RC MINI CREW

As usual top video's and congratulations to the RC Mini crew who took the top four places at the Vics.

Tony,

What tyres did everyone end up using for the event? I recall that you had to run the same size tyres front and rear. Just interested.

Thank you

Calvin

Thanks Tony.

So little tyres all round. Good to see that a variety of tyres worked, especially in the cold. Did anyone use any traction compound or tyre warmers?

BTW

I like the stickers.
