Default Take-Off Rubber Tires

Does anyone know where I can find some info. about Take-Off rubber tires? I would like to see the shore ratings and what temps the track needs to be to run each shore rating. Thanks.

look for their web site on schumachers site also in the package there is a paper with the temp ratings!
rubber tires are rated by temp but foams have a shore rating!

I think what Hector was trying to spit out, is.

Rubber Tires( Slicks and Treaded ) are rated by Tempature Range, and Foam (Rubber) tires are rate by shore.

Current Take Off Tires have the following ratings

CS-22
CS-27
CS-32
CS-37

For the most part the most run of these tires are the CS-27 Premounts

Here is what Powers Says..

CS-22 0-30 C
CS-27 10-50C
CS-32 20-60C
CS-37 40-70C

http://www.powers-international.com/...ex-english.htm

A recommendation is this, anything below 90F track temp, run CS-22, above that 27's.

We think of them as compounds/temp ratings:

CS22-Soft (cold/night) 90deg or below
CS27-Medium (warm/hot/) 90 - 160+
CS32-Hard (stupid hot) 170+
CS37-Plastic tires

Please remember that setup is important to make any tire work in any temp range

brushless....I understand that and that is why we think of the ratings more like compounds With properly setup cars you can run softer tires beyond their ratings

In Florida we average 115 - 160 deg track temps and the CS27 works great.
