I was also tempted to get the GQ tires from him but I have to pay taxes as I'm also in Tx.

I believe the Speedmind wears better as they did fill more foams (as advertised) inside. BUT couple things to remember, they do not provide constant grip and vary a lot in between weather changes. Last but not least, after you use them for a while, let say 10 minutes, the outer edges gets very soft and softer and will chunk easily (additional contribution for not being constant performance). But GQ do last longer than GRP tires with the same or better grip since we have tried them all (as well as from customer responds) and later on choose to distribute GQ solely in Indonesia

For some who do not like the orange color.. when I got back to home (still overseas currently), I will post my car with the body and mounted GQ tires.. just for another sight of view how orange nuance could appealled

I strongly believe SATO is not MONO tuning tires (they might be made from the same facotry) since it is solely the brand owned by City Hobbies in Hong Kong.

I believe just like the Pro-exotics temp gun, companies like Carlsen Tuning have rebranded them and made them into their own. So it is not surprising that Mono Tuning tires can come from Sato.

I would not really know about the first observation but I have very good experience with Speedmind and Sato tires. To me at least, they provide constant traction. Of course traction changes when track and weather changes.

Anyway, contrary to what you mention, their tires do not chunk easy even with the 37 and 35 shore ratings. Especially the sides. As far as I know, they are the most chunking resistant tires out there (if there was any category for this ! ).

I guess I shouldnt put both names together, but I believe they are coming out from the same factory just wearing different batch

Yup, cost more than an engine ! Well, I guess for mere mortals like us, a cheap temp gun will do. Most have survived with saliva anyways.

I have the cheapest available, (in electronic mode ) Duratrax (the little blue one) $26 bux . I tested it with a black pan of boiling water and it read 215F .

The exergen is top of the line industrial type. Got nothing bad to say about it
