Nice!

Looks like the new BMW rim and the rim that comes with the Kyosho 777

I haven't tried these on carpet, but prior experience with other brand of foams tell me that 42 shore on a touring car will give you more than enough traction, and you need to run a small tire diameter otherwise you'll be traction rolling with the best of em!

Omar, the distributor of the tires, is a very good friend of mine. Though he is a very busy individual. His phone number is listed on the twister tires website. Give him a call.

Just flew back from San Francisco. I was out at the Nats.

Twister Tires TQ'd the 1/10 Open class. Hats Off to Richard Brannan who was running Twister Tires.

Congratulations to Josh Alton. Winning the B Main and finishing 4th in the A MAin running twister tires.

Overall there were several racers running our tires. Consistently everyone was happy with the performance. We welcome any feedback as we continue to improve our products.

Thanks

Default manual-auto tire truer

Any one ever tried to convert a manual tire truer to auto. I have an extra Integy tire truer. And with the help of radio shack I think I can convert a manual to auto tire truer.
