Yeah. I was just on GS Racings website and its says GRP. Thats a pity cause the old Arrows tires where a real match for the GRP on any track.

Default My opinion only.

Gandini tires work very well on permanent tracks with some rubber/foam build up. Nitro shoes work well on parking lot tracks and the GQ tires believe it or not work very well. If you hit stuff they will all chunk they are foam for C#@ sake.

Harry, just go to Home Depot and get what they call a Shurform from the hand tools department. They come with a handle and in different shapes and sizes and the main surface is the same "snakeskin" cutter found on some truers.

Personally I use an old rasp that is rough on one side (good for telling a 50-60 tire who's boss) and a fine side for softer tires and finishing cuts.

Normally 40s all around or 37 if not enough traction.

Go to www.teamcrc.com. They have mounted Serpent, Kyosho, Mugen and Picco.

They have the best 1/12th and TC tires as well.
