Default Tire Warmers

Hey I'm thinking of picking up a set of tire warmers has anyone had any success with the Trinity or the Yokomo warmers. Any comments would be welcomed.

I have the team Much-More ones which are cool. The Yokomo ones look really trick but they cost a small fortune ... $239 ... overkill of note. The trinity ones look nice and are a realistic price ..!

the yokomo ones are DIALED! i got a set (my gf bought for me)... and they work AWESOME. you can adjust the temp front and rear down to 0.1c. so i can set the front to 59.2C and the rear to 53.7 or something weird..and it'll hold it there i highly recommend them. the price is worth every penny.

the trinity ones are the similar but not as refined (temperature wise) and is much much cheaper.

so are the Reedy ones alright? I mean temp control really isn't neccessary for me. I'm just looking to start off with good laps...not all the bells and whistles.

They are good and will still heat your tires up at a good temp. They will also give you all you need for the first couple laps

Realistically, how much heat do you loose from the time you turn off the warmers and place the car on the track.
