I think Molzer Mowery or Larrys performance RCs already have established distribution with PMT. Primarily Molzer mowery brings in their bike tires, and I heard Larry does too. I doubt they would have any 1/8th onroad stuff in stalk so you'd need to ask them to order them.

Hi, for the PMT 1/8 rubber tire do you will need a special rim for mount it on or do will use a standard foam tire rim to glue the rubber tire to it.
If somoene use it let we know how do you do .
Do you need also a inner foam ?

Thak you for all info gived.

P.S. If somebody have good rain race picture it will be great to see it here.

Alain.

These tires are made to glue on normal rims. Get new ones or grind down an old foamtire.

The air filter sure looks well protected I hope it does have some holes somewhere for the air to pass through...

Well, there is no filter inside..... yes, it is just a flimcontainer with some holes.
The idea behind it is with rain there is no dust in the air and water is always blocking air in the filter while water is comming through the filter into the engine, so why not compleetly open as in boat engines.
The holes are facing backwards so spray from the car in front of you will not spray dirty water from the track into the airbox.
