Those rims are the same ones that Devil's had. Hobby town told me today that they would be $23.99 a pr.....$47.98 for a set of tires that will last a qualifier..............FMR! (F___ Me Running!) Can you immage running 2 sets of tires at a club race! That would be almost $95.96+tax ($102.20...Yep, sounds like a great price. Can I buy 10 sets?....Oh, sorry, I have to make my mortgage )

Let me Vent on this:

With all the competition in tires on the market, GRP, Jaco, BSR, Ennetti, Kawahara, ect.......you would think that the hobby shops and everybody in between would have some common sense! When I can buy a set of tires that were sent from the US (jaco's) then back from Hong Kong, and still get them for less than $9 a box, why would anybody want to spend almost 3 times as much? Come on guys, smarten up! get REAL on your prices and if your going to dictate to the hobby shops what Retail is, why don't you just give them a gun and a mask so that when we walk in, they can at least look like they are robbing us!

You know what realy burns me in all of this? The fact that people still are stupid enough to pay those kind of prices!

No, they said per box, then gave a price for a set.

these are not the same as the devil's wheels and I beleive the the prices listed by axial are full retail prices so you might want to check another source or accurate pricing for the active tires if your hobby shop is trying to charge you full retail.


here is the pic of devil's tires next to active o degree and active 1 degree
