Default TOP 1/10 Rubber Tire

Anyone have try TOP 1/10 rubber tire?
This is the tir einformation.

Tokyo hobbies Optional Parts:
NoMark Touring Slick Rubber Tires.

NoMark tires consist of 3 series:
1. L Series
2. C Series
3. H Series

Most touring slick tires are categorized by temperature, but it is most frequently found that under the same track surface temperature, many drivers would use tires within different temperature category on different tracks. Our design team finds this categorization misleading in this aspect. Therefore, we have developed our new compounds based primarily on track surface material. We then treat track temperature as a secondary factor.

L Series:

Plus series is designed based on dusty and rough track surfaces and is based traditionally on temperature for categorization. L10 tires are for low temperatures, and L30 tires are for high temperatures. For characteristics,

1. The compound has a wide operating temperature range and is extra durable against mechanical wearing, so there is less need in changing many different kinds of tires on the same track, when temperature changes. The 3 tires cover the entire possible track temperature range.

2. The three kind of tires have a large overlapping operating temperature range, so there is less need in changing different kinds of tires as frequently because of more tolerance in drivability derived from the temperature overlapping characteristics.

C Series:

This series is a breakthrough in rubber tire technologies. C series is originally design for carpet track surfaces, due to the tremendous temperature changes during each run, from the heat generated by friction. Our designers targeted on wide-range temperature material and discovered the appropriate material which basically does not overheat.

Overheating results from the breaking of crosslink within rubber polymer in the molecular level above certain temperature, causing a transformation of the material; the polymer, under chemical changes, will transform into another different polymer. This transformation is sudden and affects the tire handling characteristics instantly. It would be difficult for drivers to adapt their driving behavior under this sudden change.

However, it does not mean that our C material is not affected by temperature; its temperature and traction characteristics is more linear, caused not by overheating but by mechanical wearing, so there is no sudden chemical transformation of the material.

Therefore, we control mechanical wearing by the hardness of material but not by overheating temperature. For different temperatures, we need to make the same material with different hardness to optimize driving characteristics, which is the relationship between temperature and mechanical wearing. For this reason, C series is categorized by hardness but not by temperature.

Besides carpet, the side effect of C material is its superb performance on oily asphalt track surfaces. From experimentation, we found that C tires’ grip and handling characteristics are proportionally improved by oil on contact. Therefore, C series performs best also on oily asphalt tracks, where gas powered cars are frequently present.

C10, C20 and C30 are the available hardness options.

H Series

We have integrated the durability of L series and the no-overheat characteristic of C series to develop the H Series for non-oily asphalt tracks. For this reason, it has the very similar hardness characteristics of C series.

Available hardness types are H20 and H40. They cover all non-oily smooth asphalt track temperatures.

Aside: Since C and H series are categorized by hardness, they have been named by many drivers as ‘rubber-spongy tires.’

Best TC tire is the takeoff 27. They just won the On-road US Nats, Reedy ROC, IIC, KO, ect....... All the top drivers just use their pre-glued set.

Take Off's are most popular and usually a hand out tires for racing, but that dosnt means that they are the best!

Take off's or RP's, we like both better than sorex now.

just a comment on the TOP tires.

i've tested and run them at socal a few times at outdoor tracks. they are alittle on the expensive side when comparing to other tire choses but these tires seem to have more "quick" runs in them over the others.

i have only tried the L20, H20, and H40 - have not run the C series at all. if there is one thing different i would say they produce enough bite that without a setup change your car will more than likely push.

a good reason might be because its a hand out tire for some of those races?

I have just used them last weekend at the Mazda cup in socal.I won Pro stock and was easily on pace in Pro 19t also.They were just as quick as new RP30's and the top tires had 25 runs on them already. I also ran them on carpet with similar results last night.Again I am not sponsored by these guys,just asked to test the tires for them.

Where can you get them at?
