Hi Josh,

Does Halo Hobbies have a website, where international customers can order stuff as well? I tried http://www.halohobbies.com but the address was not found.

I just want to know if anyone else has had as much of a nightmare of a time trying to get these tires to last?

I have tried every camber position from 2-41/2 degrees and tire height that I could and these tires always tear a part in only a couple of runs. I had a pair tear this weekend on the first run. I ran about three minutes and brought it in to make some adjustments and the outside rear tire was already seperating.

I've lost a lot of money and races because of these tires and i'm wondering if there is any solution or if I should just go back to regular foams.

Uneke- I know for a fact that some tracks are REALLY hard on them. Right now your best bet is go back to standard Jacos. If you are having that problem then everyone else running them at your track probably is too.

So far I have yet to see that problem. I had one tire do that to me at the great lakes challange, but i did hit a board pretty hard with that corner of the car. I have been starting them in club racing at 62mm in the front and 63 mm in the rear. 2.5* camber in the front and 3.5* in the rear. This past weekend I ran them all the way down to 58 mm.

Wasnt someone saying on here that the grip is so good that you need to drive pretty nice on them. If you like to toss your car around, then these might not be for you or your current setup / driving / track conditions.

Try driving easy on them. Dont push them harder than your regular tires and see how things go. Thats all I can think of.

This is unusual. We have made the base foam smaller and switched to a more durable base material on all future runs. Perhaps this will help.

Hi Jack,

Are these tires available only in the US stores like acehardwarehobbies at the moment or is rcmart or rcmushroom also going to make them available in the near future? Any info on that?

These tires are currently only available in the United States. They will be released overseas very soon.

i was wondering, will gluing just the edge where the tire and wheel meet defeat the purpose of going with the two stage. I just tend to do that to make sure the rubber does not peel away from the wheel since our track has pretty good bite lately. thanks in advance.

Good question, I have been doing the same thing with my tires.

It will not defeat the purpose of the 2-stage tire nor will it hurt performance. You can glue the sidewall on a normal tire, but it won't be the same as running the wraps. They are a completely different feel on the track.

I don't have that much money, but I've spent my last on Nitro shoes, until something is done, by way of strengthening the wheels.
