Those are really good tires. BTW, Pro-Hobby is AI's ebay store so you can get both your tires and pipe from him.

40 should be a good start , but look at it how much you want to grip with how much you want the tire to last a parkinglot is low traction so a 35 would suite best but wear and tear can cause them to chunk easier the lower you go , 40 should put up to the asphalt more , while giving at least enough grip. Surely more than rubber tires if you tried that.

Some parkinglots are smooth enough , normally a freshly coated black one. But either way bashing normally puts 30 minutes on a car in no time so the higher the shore the longer you can play for cheap.

So its really up to you. Another note is fronts should be slightly higher in shore. Reasons is the rear tires provide most of the forward traction while front tires provide turning and a tighter provides more side bite, so it should turn better. People play around with the balance for many reasons. Some run harder in the rear to make rear wheel tire stay the same diameter as the front.

The rears like to wear faster than the front , if you let that get out of range too far the rear will spin of more and more and soon your car wont drive worth a bit as it keeps overdriving the car , thus making it spin the rears faster than relative to the front which is obvious itll put it into a spin upon power.

Okay guys! I've been picking up the bits and peices to convert my car to '05 Hara specs and I have everything except the aluminum servo mounts. Will the stock servo mounts for the original R40 work? The aluminum ones are very slim, maybe I need to dremel down the stock one to make it work.

Could be difficult, but not impossible. The standard r40's forward mount has a post where the screwhole would be on the hara mount, so there will be a few mm offset from the deck hole compared to the hara mounts. You will also run into trouble with the rearward mount because the standard car uses the throttle servo's bracket as a spacer for the rear mount, so if you use the same mount on the hara top deck you'll need to find a spacer to put under it or your servo wont be level.

Looking at the pictures, I think you are right. I'll just wait untill my stuff arrives and take a look. I'm thinking that the servo mounts from my racer 2 look just like the hara ones.

Yeah the Hara's look really standard, I'm pretty sure you could harvest just about any kit you have lying around

the racer v2 mounts are too short,and only secure the servo with one screw per side..the hara mounts drop the servo 1/4 inch below the top deck with 2 screws per side....
