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".



i don't think they intend for you to run the tyre at 67-68 mm
tire diam. it has more to do with how thick the rubber sheets
are.

i think the mono rims are 48mm in diameter compare to GRP's 49.xmm diameter rims, and the tire's diameter is 66mm

man i haven't seen a tire put though a harder test than this
brand. I have tried this tire and it is one of the best tires
available as far as grip and tirewear goes. i don't know how
much it weights but i'm confident that the performance of this
tire is up to par and at 10.99 a pair with out having to buy in
bulk or hagle is not bad either.

people run out of things to do with their RC cars i guess. but then i don't see people start testing out engines with questionable power rating claim either.

..or other stuff.

I have this 120 Dollar servo that is supposed to have a transit time of 0.06 seconds.
I could swear that mine is slower, at least 0.07 seconds.

I will measure it tonight!

Our products are made for racers, but alot of entry-mid level guys also like to enjoy a good set of foam tires with tons of traction, very good wear rate and doesn't chunck as much as other brands.
And with that pricing, it is definitely a plus.

Also, most people do not own a tire truer and alot of people think that truer the tire is wasting their hard earned money.

ive looked and it doesn't look like it. the ones ive found are
only for pavement use. with 26mm front and 30mm rears.
I don't know how these compounds work on carpet.

Default big tyres

I could have done with a set of your more rubber tyres recently racing at Australias biggest car parking event the world famous MECA.
I was about too overtake First pos car with 3 mins to go in a half hour A mains on a very abrasive track and the outside rear wore out to the rim. My car was on rails and posting the fastest lap times.
I started these sprint tyres out of the pack but they still wore through. Not happy.
Aarron, I Wouldnt mind trying your tyres for the final round.
Cheers

I have heard some very good things myself which is why I want to try them. Good to see you are getting good results.

You could hardly call yourself objective with Monotuning all over your shirt and your username. In any event I cannot see why pointing out that they tires are not as light as they claim is a big issue. If people like them they will run them anyway right? If you don't mind that manufacturers claims don't align with their products good for you.
