Default GQ sponsored driver program - Now Open!

We are happy to let everyone know that Competition RC has full stock of GQ foam tires in the US now. Proven tough and affordable, these are ideal for all skill levels. The GQ sponsored driver program is accepting driver applications. Please pm or email me your resumes. We are very interested to hear comments from drivers who used GQ tires before. We believe that the only way to success is listening to the customers.

Too bad I'm from Canada and I don't race "all day and night". But have a very good experience with these foams. Used them way back if '92 and they perform really well, can't complain. Last longer than the ellegies but doesn't loose performance.

I will be using them again this summer on my gas car as it's priced right and last longer.

Good luck to everyone!

Is there any information about the tires? A website would be nice?

Sushi Boy - you can get more info at www.competition-rc.com and www.gqproduct.com

ms2005fl - yes, especially your local dealers don't stock them. Just send an email to [email protected]www.competition-rc.com and ask.

Korey - I don't think there is a different color in the work at the factory yet. But you can paint any color you want over the factory color, extra work I know. . .

vtl1180ny - yes, there are different carpet compounds. The carpet foam tires are on the way to the US now.

I'd be willing to try them.... I try everything.... It'd be nice to have a sponsor, but sadly I don't have nor have the time or ambition to make up an RC resume....
