Default what is rally game???

i have purchased a used 1/8th scale on road car and it came with sealed tires rims from PMT and they are nothing I have seen before kinda real tire material... very solid with no internal foams I thought the grip was going to be much better than tires with foam = not

maybe better than lightweight foams??? = not


what are they for???? and what is rally game anyways?

google is your friend. http://www.pmt-tyres.it/?option=com_...=article&id=67

Apparently "Rally Games" is the model name for some tires made by PMT. Probably decent for high speed drifting. Maybe speed runs. I don't know. Just trying to help.

they're targetted at ppl who want to run their 1/8 buggy on tarmac etc

also alternative fit for cars like yours & Kyosho's Landmax


some tyres are better without cavity + inner foams to reduce "ballooning",
once the tyre balloons the contact patch is severely narrowed.

We run Rally game races here, it is basically for the winter season, when off road is quite, the lads set their cars for tarmac racing with saloon type bodyshell and special fittings, like tyres, so it is a regulated cheaper type of racing, this way the off road racers do not spend too much in the interseason.

Hello from France, and hello Olly 986,

in Europe, we race Rally Game cars (off-road converted or special Rally Game cars with belt drive).

In North and South America, you call this category GT Class.
