Is the split spoke as strong as the solid spoke? Are Kawahara tires great? Are they worth the extra $1 or $2? What makes no sense to me is that they don't offer a +2mm offest rear wheel.

i've tryed all the GRP branded tyres, kawaharra, and the team active foam tyres.

in all honesty the best, and most cost effective tyre i have ever used is ATS brand foams. the hardly chunk, and the grip level is very good.

team active foam tyres are also very good but the price is about $3 more than ATS tyres for me anyway

i found kawaharra chunk very easily. and i hate how they do not supply the side wall stickers either. ATS have these in the pack.

Hi TomB, is the ATS brand has a white side? Could you please give me a link where to buy those.

Thanks,

Default Kyosho foams

has anyone tried? Their rim is great (stiff as hell). Love it. Finished a set without a score on the rims and I plan to re-use them for a set of wet foams.

Kyosho foams (red boxed) are great, but a little expensive...
