thanks,
The orange rims are a little heavier rim and almost indestructible. In my 5 years of using and being around GQ Tires, I never saw anyone break this rim. Saw many that unfortunately tried but with no success.

The white rim is the most advance plastic rim in the RC World. It is made from the most advanced and costly materials. These rims are lightweight and very stiff and will not go out of round under normal use. These lightweight rims only come in the white color.

Although the orange rims are still available and a bit less in price than the advanced white rims, we are only importing the white rims at this time.

Diatta was correct we will have 32 shore fronts in the 1:10th and the 1:8th Nitro Tires in a couple of days. We are waiting for the shipment to arrive at this time.

We have used 35 front and 35 rear with good success over here in Hong Kong. I suggest give that a try. It almost feel like 32 front and 35 rear when comparing to most other brand but wear rate is better.

this is our track but i need to driver 45 mins to get there!
track surface is very smooth but its been there for over 12 years plus so some facility are quite old... like the toilet
1 set of tyre should run 1 hour final without any problem.
that layout there is about 20 sec per lap for 1/8.

I'd love to have a track like that only 45min away, over here to get even close to something like that it's in easy 2 1/2 hour drive or more and it's definitely not going to be that big . My local track is about a 45min drive depending on traffic lol. You guys are very lucky

Down here in South Fla. we have 4 track like that all withen 3 hrs. And the one that there running the 1/8 Worlds is only 45 mins away. The only problem is there not running races much.
