Yes Sir, these tires are going to change things. Til then Taylorm, please remember this. Once upon a time they said we'd never make it to the moon. Right? A rubber that will last and perform well is not rocket science. Here's a clue...Who is 3M the company?

There's a lot of money to had from racers using foam tires so we must understand the ecconomic reasons for maintaining the status quo.

Who went to the moon?

What I always wondered: Why aren't there any pictures of the junk that the Apollo mission are supposed to have left on the moon?
It would be the easiest way to proove that they were there if someone showed pictures from either space probes, satetlites or telescopes.........

Brazilian company "Alpha RC" (the ones making rubber tires for GT Class) have been making rubbers for 1/10th nitro for lot of years (until 2011 i think there was still a rubber class of nitro 1/10th in Brazil), and they even have/had 30mm for rears and 25mm for fronts

I still have couple sets from them, i use them to break inn engines and some practicing ...

No problem Troy, Spread the word about the Hpi Challenge. It's been almost 12 years since I won the trip to the 2002 Hpi World Finals weld in Japan. I'd love to see the Challenge back in full swing (like in the "old-en" days).

Wish you and Sean were here in California so I could invite you guys to our 1st practice this Saturday March 1.
