I've tried UFRA, Ennetti,Jaco ,Fast Tires, Kawahara, Active, GQ's and most recently Twisters. In "my" opinion, GQ's and Twisters are right on the money. Besides the quality of material they used the price is awesome!! I'm sticking with twisters right now but if GQ's will change the orange rims...i'd probably go back using them.

My second hand 710 came with GQ tyres....right front was damaged.
The orange rims are fine for a Serpent.

I tried to find some info on the GQ site, but that site needs some work!
Everything is very hard to read and finding the German distributor didnīt work...
And the Norwegian shop that sells GQ is down for extensive maintenance.......

Twister is hard to get here...
Where I buy my tyres, they have Twister off road tyres now...
The tyres I buy are cheap, but I donīt know what brand they are...

http://www.storm-discount.com/catalo...roducts_id=888

Edit: I just found out that that shop now carries Twister tires...
20 sets front + 20 sets rear = 80 tyres for 250 euro
Thats 12.50 euro a set.
Spoke or disc, white or yellow, 26 and 30 mm, differnt shores.

In curiosity, why would you go back? I dont think it is because they are the non high-profile tires but able to ge into 2004 WC finals by a non high profiles private driver, isn`t it?

I emailed GQ ([email protected]) about the closest distributor for me (website didn't work very well) and got an email back from RC Car Exclusive in Austria (GQ forwarded my message to Austria).
They are the distributor for GQ in my area.

OK, I probably see you coming season in Gouda.
I have a 710 myself now.
Didn't run it yet.
I hope Juul can give us a setup sheet for Gouda.
Good luck in the NOMAC cup!
