I agree with ou. I like Mono for my Rc, I race 15 mins, the tires is still in good shape.

I am asking if they make tires the Real car too. If they do, I will use it too.

Are you guys going to be releasing any softer shore tires? I noticed compared to running Jaco 35's all around, Mono 37's last ALOT longer, however I run on a low to meduim grip track and can use all the grip I can get, and I really like the tires (and the price is great!) just wish I could get something softer. thanks!

I am running the new although I have yet to find it amazingly better, lol, NTC3. The track I run on is basically a prepped parking lot, around 125x150 or something around that size give or take 25 feet. The traction is nothing great and I have been struggling since the season started a few weeks ago to get the car sorted. I ended up with a TQ one weekend and a win another out of a 30 car field, but to get a fast lap out of the car you really have to fight it for it, lol. I have tried alot of different set ups, and I was talking to a friend of mine who knows has a good idea of what he is doing and said to try a softer shore tire, the tire wear isnt that bad and the extra traction is useful, so I figure, why not try a softer shore tire. Then again, if you have a dialed low-medium traction FT NTC3 set up I would also go for that as well. Anyway any help is apprecaited! thanks!
