Power tyres, Fast Tyres, Ellegi Tyres are produced by GRP. They are all quite similar in terms of quality.

I am trying them by lack of choice and they feel almost same as fast tires.
And I like their wheels better. (power)
They are fine tires. Just don't go buy Chinese made ones eventhough they are so much cheaper. I use them as car stand now. I think it was GQ or something.

Sorry I haven't seen them in US.

Why don't you try fast tires?

Guys,

the following brands are all manufactured by the same company with the same foam:

-Fast
-Ellegi
-Action
-TRC
-Best
-Arrows
-Sprint
-Power
-Champion
-Pro Star

]ALL of these tires are exactly the same, some are mounted on spoke wheels but most on dish wheels, so it does ABSOLUTELY not matter which brand you choose.


Here is the link to GRP Gandini if you want to see for yourself.

GQ is one lousy foam i've ever tried! Side wall chunk easily even on a smooth track surface with just minor bumps on the board!

Power tyres is pretty good. I run 40/40 with good result

I know they all from GRP.
But the wheels feel slightly different and the way the foams are cut.

Looks like mail order from oversea is the only source for Power tires.

As stefan said they use exactly same foam as fast or ellegi tires from GRP. All made in one factory.

If you really want to try them, search here.

GRP tires are the best for nitro racing, bare none.
These guys have been the major supplier for decades.

I like Speedmind tires very much as well.
The Jacos are overprized in my opinion.
