Awesome. Does anyone else know of another belted radial manufacturer other than HPI?

I'm about to try out the Venom Hyper Grip. They seem rather heavy and may not be soft enough. Anyone tried these?

I was looking at the venom magnetics also, they look like nice tires compared to HPI. Imex makes a good looking radial tire as well as Integy. Looks can be deceiving though. Here's the tires I like so far...

If I had challenge I'd try two things on different weeks.

Commercial parking lots like what is used for smaller stripmalls yhay have bigger corporate tenants like a big drugstore hire parking lot maintenance companies. The guys cleaning use a large rolling vacuum. It can pick up teeny bits of glass. Hire him. Probably 40 bucks.

Coat the entire track with sugar water early in the morning.

I've used the venome tires before, they wore out very quickly. That was on my nitro car though. On electric it would be better I'm sure but they did not impress me. I like the HPI advan tires they seem to have good grip and last a while. Our track is large and hard to move, we couldn't move the track every week to have the sweeper clean the area. Good idea though.

Default Vonom Update

Well, I mounted these and ran them on my son's Sprint 2 RTR. There half way used. They do make a good drift tire. They have enough mass to keep the throttle from "flashing" the tire too loose too fast and have good predictable control.
Next.
