MonoTuning
The biggest I can make it is 8.5 x 11 inches, which is about 3 times bigger.

I'll make one and send you a pic

Can't wait...

AMGRacer,Sparky:

Here is a shot of Ellegi 42R and Mono 42R (having about 3mm more foams)

By the way, there is no way the 42F Ellegi Dish or Multi-spoke is weighting at 21grams. Front tire is heavier than Rear and also different compound weights different. The harder the compound the heavier.

Here is the Ellegi one

As you can see, our tire @ 25.6g and ellegi @ 24.3g.
But our tires have around 3mm more foams, if we true it down to the same diameter, our tire will be lighter.

Thanks

Thanks for the pics. Are these rear tires?

Could be a scale issue as well I guess it only goes to the gram and might be out.

Anyway I was not implying anything improper I was just wondering how you came about the numbers. So it looks like if you true an Ellegi and Mono down to say 60mm the Mono should turn out to be 12% lighter.

Hey guys, I am now helping Aaron get the word out for the tires here on the east coast. If I get them in time for this weekend, I will compare them to TRC's. Big race coming up on May 2nd, Aaron, I will do my best to represent Mono Tuning, and tell people about them, and bring them into the shop owner.

Mono front. From my measurements the Mono has 1.7mm more foam on it.

26g.

In any event I still like the look of the tires and feel that they will perform very well!

Sorry about the huge pictures. Obviously I am too dumb to resize them.

I have no ill will towards Mono, and I am not saying they are lying. I just hate unsubstantiated claims used in advirtising.

In this game of weight saving is everything, a claim of 12% lighter than a similar product is a big deal, no matter what product it is.

I also have a hard time buying the testimonials of people in a position to gain from the company be it team drivers, distributers or employees. To be honest I would not be completely satisfied unless I had a set to compare with others myself. Alas Mono is not available in my state, and I dont think its available in my country either.

Yes, Japanese rubber is better than GRP's for a dusty track.

AMG,
Yes, please true down a set of fronts for a weight comparison.
I'd also like a report on your track test. - will swap for pipe report.

Sparksy,
Haven't seen them here yet either - Hmmm . . . what sort of price might we get for 30 pairs or something?

monotuning,
Just curious but what's the point of 67-68mm tyres? Does anyone run them at that height? I figure they would likely be pretty "squishy".
We use an overdrive pulley system in an attempt to better maintain wear rates front/rear over a long race. We'd start off with 60mm fronts, to be run with 64mm rears as the highest.

Do the Mono tyres exhibit a similar front/rear wear rate (though, maybe smaller) to other tyre brands?

If I have the tires and the time this weekend, I will compare both my monotuning and TRC (GRP) tires back to back heats. The track is medium grip, dusty. I hope I have everything in time to run my car at all this weekend. I will let everyone know.
