etzkev-- Sorry for the late reply , I have been away from the computer. As far as shipping goes it realy depends on where you live. I send out everything through priority mail. It ranges from 5-12 dollars depending on where you live and how many you order. If you go to my site and go through the order process it will tell you how much shipping will be befor you have to commit. Thanks

Ok, I went ahead and did that and it looks like it is only $5. That sounds good. I'm going to talk to some of the guys at the track and see if they want to do an order with me to try the tires out .

I ran the Monotuning tires at the Serpent/X-Ray Spring Challenge today.

These tires are the shiznit.

I ran 42's front and rear and had all the grip I could ever want. No chunking, minimal wear, I lost barely 2mm in a 30 minute main.

The results may not reflect it, due to some tough luck, but the tire were awesome.

A quick question. Mono tuning tires are 12% lighter than what competitors tires?

I weighed them vs Ellegi tires and they are heavier...........

We've compared ours with Mugen Fasttires for MTX-3

Do you know what is the stock diameter of the Ellegi tires?

Thanks

Yep they are 65mm. Thats funny since the Fast and the Ellegi are pretty similar. Anyway I am not busting your chops or anything more curious.

We understand. We respect your knowledge in Nitro TC too, we can tell that you understand alot of theory behind the dynamics of car/rc cars as we read through your posts.

We've just compared a Ellegi multi-spoke 42R with Mono 42R, our tire has around 3mm more foam then Ellegi

Hmmm that could explain it. I will recheck it when I get home tonight.

Anyways I have not run the tires yet. First impression of the "rubber" is that it seems to be similar to the so called "Japanese Rubber". Ie. very closed cells compared to the more open celled Ellegi and FAST. I have heard from others (Sparksy you reading this ), and somewhat unscientifically found myself that this "Japanese" rubber works better on dustier surfaces. Do you guys have any insight into this?
