Thanks for the info and pics, V12.

I wonder if these tires work in dry conditions on unprepared asphalt. Very interesting!

The Pit Shimizus are also used on carpet if there is a free tirechoice.

Thanks for the info guys. I used a set of Pit 24R slicks on the carpet this past winter and they worked great (even after I took a chunk out of one's contact patch ). Since those rain tires are a 20 compound, they are probably way to soft to use outdoors in the summer here. Oh well, just a thought.

Never heard from that ESC before.

Advanced Electronics is a small swedish company that produces batteries, esc and motors. They been around quite some time and have a small team of drivers in Sweden. Latest addition to the team are the Myrberg brothers who drove Advanced products during the Euro`s. Iīve heard good things about the esc, Advanced V 4.0.
You can read more at their website: Advanced Electronics (in swedish)

It's extremely funny, and it really shows who's in control in the slippery conditions. Well, actually with the pit tires, it's really good grip, almost like dry, but it's a hell lot more friction, so speed isn't all that... Watch the videos on www.teamorion.com and you'll see what I mean...

Just throw your speedo and receiver in a balloon, and try it... condoms may also be used It's really a lot of fun!

I think especially the guys from Great Britain have these condition very often. So they know how to do a really waterproof car.
And they know how to make a waterproof ESC direct from factory like the MRT.
I saw some of the other rain pics and man it really woke me up!!!!!!! I bet that is just so hard to control your car in that kind of conditions. If the others race I guess not to be left out you have to race.
