Default Carpet Racing - HPI 4767 Tires

http://www.hpiracing.com/products/en/4767/

Is anyone using these tires yet? How would they compare to foam tires on a low traction Carpet surface? Will be racing 21.5 (and maybe 17.5) Performance? Grip? Durability?

Would be nice to get away from tire truing, chunking, wearing away.....

Thanks for any advice.

They don't appear to be for sale just yet.

Thanks for your reply Mike. I was starting to wonder that same thing. However Tower, RC Planet and others have them in stock.

Maybe they're still too new for people to be running them...... Is Carpet racing still common in the States and Europe???
