Who is bringing these out? What is the purpose? It seems like the current buggy and truggy tires are perfect...

Hope fully they will be the same as the old tires forcing the old ones to come down to liquidate.

The sponsored guys at our track are running them.

Not much......99% of club's dont obey by any sort of rules that Roar or IFMAR would....does your car get tech'd at your club races for fun ? i doubt it....so in reality these tires will benefit the regular old club racer with better tires that last Alot longer.

it'll take a couple weeks for them to filter down outta the hands of the pro's to us regular club racer's....but give it a week or 2 and they should be available anywhere.
