From what I can gather they are the only two with these tires.... and for some reason they are way faster than everyone else


The worlds has always been about exclusive parts, tires, etc.....

I see a lot of teams gluing up donuts and which i'm sure is thier own special blend and not to be shared with other teams...lol Welcome to racing....

Everyone does it......

Special secret tires? Geez, it's like the dark ages of R/C over there. I don't see anything great about that at all.

Exactly my sentiments......It's the Worlds for goodness sake. You also have electronics, batts, & 'special parts' that's exclusive to each individual team. Couple that with great driving & luck, and the chips fall where they fall. Right now it's in the Associated camp

Not surprising as Masami was supplying AE with front and rear tires at Worlds in Florida too even though he was running TRC fronts. From the pics it looks like Hideo is doing the samething with the TRC fronts. It also looks like the Yokomo rims are the older smaller diameter and not the larger style of the CRC and Jacos. Anyone know what diameter the Hot Bodies rims are?

This is why we don't put a lot of emphasis on this race. So you win this race on a surface no one runs on with tires that don't work anywhere else. How does that help us out? Monday morning everyone will be back to running yellows and double pinks. If we won I would be happy, don't get me wrong, but this in no way drives our sales. Bragging rights only.
I also believe the tire game at the worlds is used to mask the real reason for an advantage...tire sauce. If everyone thinks you have a special tire, they are too concerned about that to pay attention to what is in the bottle. Just a theory.

Quite a realistic theory.

Good to hear from you. Keep it up as now, & say Hi to Juergen

I think that a lot of people would be interested in an asphalt specific compound..... Especially in CA, and FL where racing outdoors is the way to go....

We have asphalt specific tires. Pinks, magentas, double pinks, lilacs, and purples are all GAS CAR tires. They also happen to work on carpet. It is just that the bulk of our sales are for carpet racing.
