electric vs. nitro foam tire question...

A friend of mine told me earlier today that the Mugen Fast Tires being sold here locally are made for electric touring cars; not nitro touring, and that the shore ratings on the box wasn't what we think it is.

Personally I thought he was full of crap but my question is, does Mugen Fast Tires come in a electric touring version that's different from a nitro touring tire? And if so, how do you tell them apart?

He's full of it. They are nitro tyres, but with that said I run them (40 shore) each week in stock electric touring. They work great and last ages.
