Default 24mm or 26mm tire width ?

Hi,

OK, I know that the 24mm tires are by far more popular for 1/10 electric cars

But on the TCS they are both allowed.

Which one of these two will be more efficient for better lap time ?

I know that the 26mm are bit heavier, but they should provide more grip.

Danke

26mm tires scrub speed due to the increased surface area

24s....No doubt...

26 also makes the car too stable..

Also, depends on the tire you need, some may only come in 24mm, like the newer Type B3's(haven't heard about them in any size but 24mm). but in general, I think you'll like the responsiveness of your car most with 24mm all around(they really don't give up much grip at all, & they seem better rolling through corners to me)...

Actually, those tire widths in 1/10 scale electric sedans is for foam tires only, you will not see rubber tires at any width beyond 24 or 26mm(except for bigger scale cars or some nitros).....
