Aiyah ! That's not possible. Buy a 710 and you can use the 710 FAQ. It is that simple. (j/k)

It is a good document, but there won't even be one for the RRR, which I also have.

The information virtually all came from the forums, it was just putting it together to a central resource.

Cheers, Mark.

NiMo,

What's your opinion on those GQ tyres.
We bought a couple of sets to test but haven't really got around to it.
Thanks in advance.

Hi

I ran GQs all last season. They are harder than others such as Elegi and work out a shore more than quoted. GQ 37s = Elegi 40s. They take a while to warm up as well so your need 1-2 laps to get the heat into them.

They dont chunk as much as others and the rims are great.

They dont work on all tracks and for what Ive seen no tyre does. Around Ashny we use GQ 37s or Jaco 40s.

Fastlap tyres are supposed to be good as well

Cheers

As Ziggy says, takes a few laps to warm up, which can be nasty in finals as they also cool down very quickly, I have lost races simply due to the tyres taking too long to heat up.
Wear rate is good with at least two meetings from a set, but if the tracks gets the slightest wiff of dampness, then you are in the bushes.
Comparing to the Nitro Shoes I was running (and may go back to) GQ's have twice the lifetime expectancy, but Nitro Shoes heat up in half a lap, and dont fail as rapidly when a bit of dampness appears.

I wouldn't count on anything from that place being a good deal. They just take your money and you never hear from them again!
