I agree with the past few posts. The SP35EX was better for me over the
Sorex 36R. The tire reacts to changes and stays consistent from the first
run to the fourth. Hope to run this tire at future events. Good job Solaris!

The rubber formulation between the SP and SC are exactly the same.

Thanks,

EJ

I have tested the Solaris 35EX back to back with Sorex 36s. I found the 35EX are just as fast on the first run and seems to hold up better then the Sorex 36s. Sorex 36s drops off considerably after the 1st run. My lap times usually slow by .1-.2 secs on the second run.

I like the performance/price ratio the 35EXs provide and will continue to use them for our local club races. Finally found a tire I'm happy to make the switch from overpriced Sorexs.

Alot of compliments on the tires... Especially from the mod racers.

I was looking on a local webstore and noticed that they sold solaris 12th scale tyres, anyone know much about these and what type of foam they are using?

Yes.. I saw them at our local carpet track.
They or him(lol) were testing them.
Hopefully EJ will chime in.

Agreed. first tires I've ever used that didn't drop off appreciably after the first few minutes. Probably the best choice available for a spec tire right now...

Now that the RROC is over, we are back to our favorite tires (Solaris) We have SP30 (Spoked), SP35 (Spoked) and SP35 Dish wheels in stock. Can't wait to run tires that don't fall off over the course of 2 runs again.

We've been running the new Solaris SC35 and SC40s and they are another awesome tire! The compounds are the same as the SPs, but the sidewalls are taller and more rounded making them a bit easier to drive. Laptimes between the two are pretty much the same, but depending on your driving style, you may find more consistency with the SCs.

Here are a couple of pics if you haven't seen them, we have them in black and white but I personally prefer black:

Guys, I can't seem to find the EX tires anywhere!
Does anybody carry them? I am looking for the SC40EX or even the SP40EX as the 35's seem to wear out pretty quick in the heat at Roadrunners.
