Are "Tire Warmers" applicable for use with Foam Tires?

Hello. I have a question regarding electronic "Tire Warmers". I would like to know if they are applicable for use with foam tires? I know they work great for rubber tires, but I am not sure if they are an advantage or a detriment to foam tires. Does any of you nitro touring guys who use foam tires use them? Its getting cold here now and I think some tire warmers would be great to keep my tires warm. I am thinking of purchasing this adjustable unit from Integy/Eagle Racing (it is pictured below). Does anyone use this unit, and if so, is it really better than the other tire warmers on the market?



Thanks in advance!

Perhaps, it's great use to get rid off the moist in which the Foam Tire tends to easily absorb. Other than that, I don't know.

I've used the Trinity warmers for years... they DO work.

Next raceday, go over to the pits and pick up your buddy's car after a run, feel the tires, they ARE getting hot.
