Hello fellow racers,

The new site is up and running. If you want to register go ahead, as we will be getting product within the next few weeks. Hopefully toward the beginning of July we should have a full stock of Sedan and 1/8 scale tires. Please post any questions you may have.

http://contactrctires.com

Thanks,

DJ Apolaro

Many people have been registering over the last 24 hours. Good to see so many racers interested in what I am sure will be the next level of tires to come to the market. Keep the questions coming and I will try my best to answer them.

Later,

DJ Apolaro

The design and material of the wheels, as well as the process in which the foam is mounted. This should make for great consistency from tire to tire. I guess you just have to wait and see. Look forward to the release!

DJ had an extra set of the test tires from the Nationals. I ran them today and they were good. The fit was exact and they were as tight at the end of the day as when I first put them on the car. Tire wear was great. Thanks DJ

Glad you liked them. Wish I could have stayed to watch you run with them, but my son wore me out. I wanted to try to get home before it got too late. Turns out after we got home he wanted to go to the pool. What a long day!

Should have more soon enough.

I will be at the Novarossi Race this weekend in Chaplin, CT. I will have some 1/8 tires for people to see and will be giving away about 5 sets. Come by and see the new tires.

Just a quick update:

The new Tire line ContactRC is making news all over the globe. First it was Paul Lemieux winning the Roar Nationals on the first time out. Then it was Robert Pietsch winning the 1/8 scale Euro's in great fashion. Taking the TQ and winning in the 45 minute final and then DJ Apolaro at the Novarossi Challenge. Also taking the TQ and the win after the 45 minute final. That makes it 3 for 3!!! The first 3 races and ContactRC is victorious in all of them. Making its mark as the tire to beat. Below are photos for each. Post can be found in REDRC.NET

Regards,

DJ Apolaro

For those of you wanting tires for the Sedan Worlds, we are asking that you go to the site and register. Then pre-order your tires on the site before Tues. July 13 by Noon. The tires pre-ordered will be sent to the track for pickup. This is the best way to make sure you have the tires needed.

We are only going to have the light weight version available for this event, so make sure those are the ones you order. If you have any questions you can PM us or contact us through the web site. Please do not flood this forum with purchase questions.

Thank you,

ContactRC Tires
