Hi,

Would I be right in thinking that I should take the diameter measurement from the centre of the tyre when the tyre is coned? i.e. if I want to use equal sized tyres front and back, then with the coned tyres a central measurement should then correspond to a central measurement of the non-coned tyres?

Cheers, Mark.
I always measure the outide (largest) diameter. Coned or not.

I am running the ellegi ones which are the same as the arrows and last timeout someone bumped me into a curb and I had the spokes crack on 3 rims I am no trying out the monotuning tires that Marcos is using and the rims seem to be a lot stronger. I purchased mine from here http://www.kinetixrc.com

How come everyone is running these spoked wheels?? Wouldn't dished wheels be much stronger? Just a thought.

Gotta have a little flash.

Dish rims look so boring.

I'm using the dish ones from www.twistertires.com. They're very strong and I think it's great for the 710. It's resistant to bending so it eliminates the wheel from rubbing on the front steering hub and link.

But with a big camber change during braking or accelerating the tire contac area gets less so you lose grip.

Make sense?
Thank you for brought me this new zone.."forward traction".

Less contact area when camber change is big only can happen if the tire is not coning enough. So if the rear tire is still flat, that is make sense.

Been testing for 3 days, Im running 4 deg rear camber (tire coning about 2 deg.), 70-80 diff lock and 6mm front caster.
The more camber change during cornering and accelerating/braking is creating more traction. I think because the foam tire is in a way creating wider contact path, near to 31mm.
With 4 deg rear camber, the temp reading in outside, middle and inside part of the tire is only 1 deg. differ. the outside is the hottest, middle and inside is only a fraction.

What I would like to ask is, I remember someone over the factory claimming it was in the same quality as Hudy spring steel.. With all do respect... How do you know if it is in the same quality?? they even look weaker than the 710 standard bones.
....Aahhh you were being too polite lah....

I've tried Arrows and I really like the foams. I remember having some problems with the inner part of the rims though but not so much on the "play" of the hex.

Let us know how you got on with them.
