Default Belted tyres?

I thought I had seen some sort of reinforced tyres some where, but now I can't seem to find them. I am running a MM 7700 in a Losi XXX-S +G and I am finding that after a few runs the tyres fly apart. Does any one make belted tyres?

what a pointless reply.

i use HPI x patterns, which are a radial and come with a belted version, also for slicks try Tamiya Reinforced Slicks Type-A/B which are parts numbers 53293 and 53294 (the 53294's are for hotter track temperatures)

What do you mean pointless reply? I simply gave the guy advice. If you are shredding tires after 2 runs, dont you think you are going too fast? After going through about 15 runs and 5-7 sets of tires, you could have already bought yourself a slower motor and saved a lot of money.

Thanks, I couldn't remember which company I saw them from. Tamiya, of course. But I think I will try the HPI tyres, I prefer the look of the HPI tyres.

Actually, it's not fast enough.

wow, that's stupid. slower motor means less fun. assuming he's bashing, you would want the speed. that's not advise at all.

1 word Foam but if not running on smooth surface go with the others

I thought about foam, but the area that I am running on is not the smoothest. So I think rubber would work better.

my apologies, i'd had a bad day

for the topic starters interest, i run a TA-03R TRF with a Mamba Max 5700kv system, and the HPI x patterns last ages, while providing awesome grip.
