Not really true gents. We're all here to help but that also means trying not to bog the forum down. If you do a search for "Tamiya Tire" ...there's 8 pages and i saw a few threads regarding tire choices. But remember , some of those threads go back quite a ways. There is a thread for the Tamiya Challenge Series in the "Racing" forum. Anything you want to know about running Tamiya products should be there.

Here you go...I found it.

Superficially you're correct, but to decipher those comments listed in that thread, filtering out Touring Car chassis, with Modified motors, on asphalt, in cold weather is a bit unrealistic... But I appreciate your contribution

As much as I hate people who are too lazy to google anything, 2-bad isn't really to blame IMHO. The search function is a real PITA tu use and I stopped counting the hours of useless digging, just to ( sometimes not even) find one part number or bit of info...

PS I have no idea about the answer to the original question but I was curious so I clicked, hu-hu

i agree the search function isnt that great and when theres a thread on a certain car who wants to skim through 200 pages.......we should have different forums for each car then threads for those cars it makes it much easier u click on your car then search the threads not one thread on a car then a million different questions being asked in that one thread.

Tamiya Type C for Carpet. Not sure if they will work well on Asphalt since it's not warm/dry enough to run outside yet

Tamiya Type B3 were used in warmer days and they last a bit longer.

Tamiya Type A were used in cold temperature but they do not last at all once the temperature picks up.

To be honest, the fastest way to figure out which tires to use, head to the track you'll be racing and ask the locals.

Well seeing as though you are in sunny sef efrika and so am I, I will tell you what has worked for me in super stock (can surely be applied for mod as well) and what others have suggested to me thus far.............

.......Type A's with the black insert.......

Others in that class have been known to run B3's with the blue insert all year round.

It just depends on your setup and what works for you!
