I was out to test the tires for Aaron at Revelation Raceway, and I can tell you that they are better than most of the tires I've ran, if not all. I've been driving my car recklessly to see how the tires would hold up to flipping and rolling. IT DOES NOT CHUNK!! My foams have cuts from hitting the metal plates, but the cuts do not continue to rip and chunk like other foams. I managed to chunk the 37s, but that didn't chunk all the way to the rim. The tires fit perfectly from the box. No reaming just to make it fit the axle.

Tires look good, I wonder about the rims. That type of design traditionally has lend itself to developing wobble etc. and even crack under stress. This was the reason I wnet with the solid dish rims some time ago. Anyone know how good the rims are?

if im not mistaken, those are speedmind rims. i have the ones that are in the pic (using rubber tires). been using those types and they seem to hold up. i had one speedmind model that cracked at the inner most part (not completely cracked, just a little one) but the rubber and inserts i used was firm so it might be the reason.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I drove my car to test the tires. I didn't deliberately hit the wall or anything, but I drove the car without caution. Revelation Raceway is pretty tough on tires when you hit the metal plates and islands. After 1 lower arm, 1 pivot ball, front and rear knuckles, ( 3 different occasions), lots of rolling, I still haven't chunked the tires. My front rims did not crack. One of the fronts is wobbling a bit, but I don't think any spoked rim could've stayed straight after my crashes.

I received the first samples from Aaron yesterday, thank you !!

The rims look the same than the Speedmind rims that Sato is using, which is a very good thing.

IMHO, Speedmind makes the best rims on the market.

The quality of the entire wheel is awesome, the glue job looks perfect.

I checked the shore ratings with my Durometer and the ratings are much closer to the number on the package than on the GRP tires.

So far, I had nothing but great experiences with the Japanese foams, so I expect the Mono Tuning tires to awesome on the track.

Weather permitting, I will run them next week and do a back to back comparison to GRP tires.

I will keep you updated.

The comments sound promising, is there likely to be a distributor in the UK ?

Diesel Racer:

We currently do not have a distributor in UK, but hopefully in the near future.

Thanks
