tq and 2nd @ texas biggie... both using MONOTUNING tires.

all i can say is that MONOTUNING tires are real good. i have used a lot of manufacturer's tires and the monotuning so far is the only tire that doesn't chunk like the others.

very good quality.. light weight... strong rims... and hooks up really good. and also very important, they are locally available. so you don't have to wait 2 to 3 weeks to get your tires from japan

I believe a Snake finished 5th on GQTires, I do know that 8 of the 12 1/8 cars in the A/Main were using the new air filters that they have come out with. And the exhaust gaskets are as good as if not better than R/B.!

OK, I'm getting into Nitro more seriously now with my new FT NTC3 kit, and I'm wondering about tires. Baker uses Jaco Nitro Shoes, which I have heard good things. He seems to use 35 and 40s depending on the track. My questions have to do with tire shore. These tires are labled "30 Deg Front, 35 Deg Front, etc..." Are they temp rated, or are these tire shore ratings? Also, how does a tire's shore rating affect performance? In other words, as the # goes up, does the tire get harder? I'll be racing on treated asphalt.

Thanks,

Bryan

Shore rating is the hardnes of the tyre. 30 being soft and 45 hard. The harder the tyre the more resistance to wear.

Usually the softer tyres have more grip and therefore less resistance to wear

As the temp goes up you will need a harder tyre but it really depends on your surface.

Trial and error is the best method

Cheers

Default GQ 1/8 scale tire performance

I am very happy with the all aspects of performance with these tires. I have been running them since late April and this is the first time I am posting my opinion on them. I wanted to really put them to the test before I said anything in here about them.

I just recently returned from the 1/8 region 2 regionals in Richmond VA. The track surface was sealed and treated with VHT. The grip was great for me through practice, all four qualifiers and a 30 minute A-Main. I'm not sure what tires the other racers were running but there were alot of cracked rims and severely chunked tires over the two day event. I didn't chunk one tire and didn't crack any rims. The GQ tire wear was extremely low, surprisingly low. I used one set of 35s front and rear for all of my practice, and all 4 qualifiers, and I could of used them in the main but I didn't. I put on a new set for the A-Main, cut the rears down to 75 mm and the fronts to 68.5 mm. I finished the 30 minute main with 72.5 right rear, 72 left rear, 65 left front and 66 right front. Truely amazing. I do know the winner of the race was running Super Gs and he almost burned all the rubber off of his front and rear left side tires.

I am a believer in GQ tires now. They are the best tires I have ever used, and I have used UFRA, Ennetti, Ellegi, and GRP Fast tires. And I will admit I am not the cleanest driver, I do hit stuff from time to time, and I have yet to break a GQ tire rim. I actually bumped the outside barrier of the high speed sweeper 4 or 5 times during the 2 days and no chunks, no bends, or breaks. The other cars that bumped it the same way I did came back with huge 1" chunks missing.

BTW, I finished 3rd in the A 0:0.13 of a second behind 2nd place, with lots of tire and grip left.
