No Sri not trying to mess with anyone,we all run rubber tries. Today touring car are made to run rubber tire lipo and brushless motors. And if you go to a race like SnowBrids , IIC, or ROAR Nats. there will be a spec rubber tire.

Only thing we run foam in is 1/12th scale or out door nitro.

Thanks! These guys are all running foams with no traction compound. They're talking about having a special rubber tire class. Will 30mm tires fit on the rear of a TC6.1?

They will if you use the inside lower shock mount. On the front at full lock, with some foams, depending on offset, you can get some rubbing on the lower shock mount and the suspension arm. I would avoid Contact brand tyres as they are the ones I have had most trouble with. I use Speedmind and others at my club are running Xceed's on TC6.1's without issue.

Thanks for the info! I don't want a bunch of trouble or have to do any mods. Maybe 26mm all around is the way to go. What do you guys think about this deal?

Thanks! I finally got some more info from somebody in the club. Apparently, they don't make foam tires for electric touring cars. So, they are using the 26mm nitro foamies all the way around. I just ordered some from A-Main Hobbies. I should be all set now! Also, they run the tires the way they come.
