Default Where to get GQ sedan foams?

I got a set from RCTexas a long time ago and just got a chance to run them this past weekend, they seemed to work better than anything else I tried at my local track. I went back to RCTexas.com hoping I can stock up but they don't appear to have them anymore. Where can I get some for a reasonable price (~$8-10 a pair?)

Thanks -Dan

I doubt you will be able to get them at those prices any longer. I know he doesn't stock them, but team taylor does deal GQ products. If you tell him what you want he can get them for you. The importer now is competition rc, but they price them higher in order to get you to buy from a dealer.

Go to www.teamtaylorracing.com. Send him an email or call him and let him know what you want.

Actually ordering direct from www.competition-rc.com, the price on the website is identical to what GQ dealers are supposed to be selling them for. Unfortunately GQ tires doesn't have a big name, big drivers, but their wheels are much stronger than anything out there, wear is quite a bit lower as well. I have had gas and electric racers tried GQ in the past year and no complaint from any of them.... well, except some complained about the color of the wheel.

I'm in no liberty to address the cost and/or dealer pricing, but the figure you have in mind ($8 ~ $10) is ULTRA low.

Try Microsystem tires, they are very consistent in shore and tire wear is minimal and the rims are strong, this are made in France

MS tires are available through Kamikaze as well. Try a set, compare them to your GQ's or other tires you might have, then make up your own mind.
