Why not just use a set of A's? They're only $12 a pair

Ray, can't say for sure, but I know the 138G's would be wayyyy faster on carpet than the other two. The A is probably closer to a 138G than a 32...32's are real hard.

NO one sells Tamiya tires around here Gary-this is Foam tire country. I'll be lucky to find the inserts at Hobbytown over the weekend. I have the new A's and the Tamiya rims-just no inserts.

Uhhh, speedtechrc.com, Tower, lots of places to get them. If anything, 27's are close, the Yokomo's have too much grip.

I race on a large, smooth, hot track. What kind of inserts and air gaps would I want for the rear tires and for the front tires? Is it best to run the same insert all the way around?
Lastly, what's the difference in running 24 mm rims compared to 26 mm rims?

Hmmmm this is a tough one. Since it's smooth you normally wouldn't need a big airgap. But your in a hot weater climate. I bet you could run some inserts liek a sorex type C or yokomo 039 series insert to give a big airgap. Then drill some larger vent holes in your wheels. This will help air move in and out of the tire and circulate the air. It will hep cool it down a bit so you dont overheat. It will also come up to operating temp a little faster too. It will make the tires wear a little faster though..... Just use the same insert all around, less confusing lol. Anyone else have any input?????

Are those yokomo and sorex inserts hard? How fast will my tires wear out with that setup? I running the stock tt-01 radials. This setup will work for asphalt right?

Not sure about the sorex inserts ... The yokomo 039 super thin series comes in medium and firm (039f and 039m).

Sorex type c come in med and hard for sure. Not sure abotu a soft. It all depends on driving style how fast they wear out, bigger air gaps tend to make tires wear a little faster. I guess it;s the price you pay to have some shoes that grip.

I guess I'll just buy a few sets of inserts and try them. I'm also generally a smooth(don't skid much) driver so I'll try thin, firm inserts first.
Before I buy I just want to know what the difference in handling is between 26 and 24 mm tires? Thanks for all your help Korey and Mal.

You'll have a hard time finding 26mm tires to fit those rims. 24mm tires are the norm now. 26mm tires would probably give you more grip at the expense of extra rotational mass and decreased corner speed.
