Default Looking for TIRE WARMERs

Hey folks I am looking to get a nice tire warmer. Which is a good one and do you know where, maybe?

I can find a retailer, but I really don't know what is out there. I am not to concerned about price.

Wow a $350 tire warmer! Let me ask what a good tire warmer is besides the Yokomo. Stormer carries the Yok for $275 but its out of stock and I can make do with something less. Has anyone used the Trinity, Reedy, or Much More warmers?

These work better for me than the trinity ones and Take up less space in my pit box.

You can also get them from Speedtech but I think he is out of the tire warmers them selves.

I just started running rubber tires on carpet and it takes a few laps to get the tires up to temp. It would be a lot easier for me to start with warm tires especially during practice where I am making set up changes every few minutes.

That looks nice like the Yokomo warmer. I wonder how much it'll be?

the tire warmers not necessary, but in some cases they do make a difference, if for instance you are running outdoors on an 150 degree surface the warmers will pre-heat the tires so that you dont have to spend the first couple of laps slippin around. To some people any advantage makes you "faster"

personally i have used the integy, trinity, and tamiya warmers, the tamiya warmers are spendy and dont last very long. the integy ones are good but i prefer the controll of the trinity digitals

Can someone tell me if the Trinity warmers are a metal cup inside like the MuchMore or Yokomo ones?

no they are not. i have the trinity cup types. they are good and heat up to an insane 99 degrees celcius!

BUT i found i have to use tissue paper (the type you have in the toilets to dry your hands).

i have to pre cut the paper and wrap these around the tyre before putting the warmers on as it helps (ALOT!) for the tyres to slide on and of when using traction compound. if you don't do this it is almost impossible to take them of once the traction compound is set.

if you are ok with doing this, get the trinity
