vrage suck, best used as display tires

For good rubber tires look at TAKE OFF and SOREX. Great grip long life..

If your just playing some HPI tires in there harder compounds last a long time..

V-rages wear out pretty quick. I dont know why they put them in their kits anymore.

I like sorex tires. Harder compounds last longer obviously.

CS - 32 Take offs. They take the heat and are a very hard compound.

Any hobby shop that sells sedan racing stuff should have Take Off tires. If not tell them to call Schumacher USA (813-889-9691). We are the exclusive US importer.

Have them call on Monday. We have a hurricane rolling though tomorrow so we are taking the day off...I wish I were kidding!

You can also order on line at www.schumacherusa.net

Try some traction compound, it will help you get the most out of your tires as well.

We carry the Take off CS tires in both pre-mounted pre-glue version, and also by the pair (so you can glue up your favorite choice of rims) Click here to go directly to the Take off Tires page

You don't need 26mm for a TC3. They include 26mm tires in the kit but they aren't needed. Just get the Takeoff CS27 premounts or the CS32 that aren't premounted and if you're not racing the HPI blue inserts should be fine and order whatever 24mm wheel you want.
