short and to the point.

Oh I see that is to say we post similar, and that they look the same.
Well thatís it. I am busted. I am Marty. I just wanted back on r/c tech because itís like a drug and I could not live with out it, Right!!

Now that I think about it could it be that I took over MLP to help a guy out.
No thatís not it why would I do that? Oh I remember it was because I have owned every one of his cars and I liked them so much that I wanted to help when he became ill and I for one felt he could use a hand and not people looking to take him down.
So because I felt he needed help so that is what I set out to do.

One would think that the R/C public in his area would have said hey he is a new manufacturer in our home town or state and maybe he could use a hand and it would be cool to have a local guy making r/c cars and maybe we could help him and see if MLP comes up with something we would like to race, or even do some testing for him.

No I donít remember seeing any of that when he was taking a beating on here for setting out to try and make a touring car.

What ever. :

The suntan lotion makes the traction last later into the run, very important for 8 min 1/12th racing, and makes the tires no pick up debris from the racing surface.

I don't know why it works so well but I have been doing this for 25 years and so far nothing else I have tried works as well.

I wonder about running rubber tires on the Pro 10 class... Too cut down the cost of racing....

Can't be done. The manuf. or someone would need to make adaptors for the 12mm hex found on sedan wheels. There are capped tires but I beleive they cost more than foam and sedan wheels. Adrain (most of the time a good source of information) most likely knows more about this than I do.

Cut down the cost? Have you seen the price of capped tyres for pan cars?

Already been done... By Tamiya.

It's not that hard to make the adaptors for the rear but you would need to relocate the front bearings into the steering knuckle like Tamiya did.

The tamiya cars can be a handfull with rubber tires and a little bit of motor.

The Tamiya F103GT is a rubber tire pan car. The problem is even with the best tires it can't generate enough traction to use any more power than a silver can on 6 cells or Lipo. Even a 27T ROAR stock motor is too much power and will make the car spin out at the lightest touch of the trigger.

Foam tires on pan cars are a better choice. This is because they are so much wider than rubber tires. They can generate more traction so there is less slip and thus much less wear than even what nitro sedans on foam experience.

In my area the F103GT class is becoming very popular........since we started running foam tires. The cars are much more driveable and cost is less. A set of $20 foams seems to last about five or more full race days. In GT10 I have run four race days on a set of foams (pink front and rear) running 6cell/13.5. Our sedan racers are getting 2 or 3 runs on a set of $40 rubber tires.
