Default Duratrax Performance Tires

Not only do DuraTrax Performance Tires deliver superior performance, they're also value priced so you get more runs for your money!

They are soft. I spoke to Scott Cramer at iHobby and he puts them right between an M2/M3 compound if you had to compare. I felt the tires and the rubber felt good. Foams were closed cell type. Seems like it will be a great product at a good price

I guess that may be your opinion. But have you even taken a look and tested these tires? I have, and your opinion, in MY opinion, is incorrect.

Well, he is right. Duratrax and performance isn't exactly bread and butter you know.
I'm all for trying them though but it' hard to beat the tires from Hot Bodies for now.

What does value priced mean? I haven't seen any prices listed anywhere.

Those prices don't ring up as value priced on my register.

When was the last time you saw a Duratrax Raze or an 2wd Evader win an A-main Regional or even a Club race....It doesn't happen for the fact Duratrax has never been known for anything performance RC related...that's All jwm2 was trying to say (I assume) and im going to agree with him.
