The best thing of all is we stand behind our product and take care of our customers.
VERY TRUE!!!
I had a problem with a frt set of tires. I contacted Kevin and he replaced them no problem. He stands behind his product.

Default Batch shore issue

Hey guys and Contact, well done for such a high performance and wonderful tyre.

Last Sunday we had a race and was setting up this last whole month my new Kyosho R4 running contacts front 37 and rear 40.

Car was handling great until i ran a new set of contact same shore but bought at a different period, all of a sudden car lost a lot of power steering. Tryed another new set and car felt the same. Installed the used set i had with which my car was handling great but where almost completly used and car handled great

Could it be that a different batch production have more grip or less grip than other batches?

Also would it be possible to run 35 front and 40 rear since we need so much steering?

Default rubber

Speed6, I don't think it was a batch issue. The rubber is the same. Could have been possible the shores were not correct.
Yes of course you can run 40R/35F if you feel necessary, but you can also find more steering with set-up. Sound like this one was a shore issue thought.
