I'd like the same thing, but I've had no luck finding anything yet.

The old B tires are good when it's hot, A tires work when it's cold to cooler than hot, B2 doesn't work at any time, and the B3 might be nearly as good as B when it's hot, but should last longer.

That's what I've been told so far.

The info i got so far in my quest has been

Tamiya A act close to a CS22
Tamiya B act close to a CS36
Tamiya B3 act close to a CS27

I have no time on the tires to prove this for myself , but this is how i have been told the B2 tires i have not heard anything about , i was hopping some of these long time TCS guys would have lots of onroad experience with the tamiya tires and regular tires.

If you were to look from a racing standpoint.

Tamiya As are best for indoor carpet and low grip situations. Outdoors they can work if the pavement has no heat in it or the track is very cool or moist. They don't like to heat up if they do they get greasy.

Any Tamiya B works best outdoor.

Tamiya B - Offers good grip will easily blister under high heat situations usually past 130f track temp. They will work well in cool conditions.

Tamiya B2 - Are a thicker carcass can stand up to the heat more but can be harder to hook up especially under cooler conditions.

Tamiya B3 - Seem to hold up better than the Bs under higher heat. I have only ran them a few times last year. Evidently they are the replacement tire of choice.

As far as ratings.

I always compared the A's to CS27 although a friend has a durometer and says they can range anywhere from CS22 to CS27.

Any of the B's I don't know their rating. Usually I just use them and adjust inserts and rim holes accordingly. B's are hard to find, B2's can be harder to use and B3's are probably the best/newest choice.

My experience is with sedans. If you are talking Mini's or another class then things are different.

Rule #2 from Tamiya web page:

Any manufacturer's electronic speed control, radio equipment, servo saver, antenna, antenna mount, pinion and spur gears, spur gear adapter, ball bearing, tire inserts are allowed.

TA05R ? , if the TA05 is the car for the past champs race , does that mean there will be an R version out or will they be allowed to add bearings and threaded shocks all the normal stuff people need in a race car.

so, to be clear, the tamiya track usually has regular hours, except when special events occur... and in this case, they are closed from now until the reedy race may 28/29, and then closed until june 4th....

so when there aren't any special events, the track is open during the weekdays... is that correct?

No.

Tamiya opens the track only on Saturdays, from 10:00am to 4:00pm. They normally open the gates around 9-ish, to let people start getting set up.

However, the week before the TCS National race (in August), they open the track all week (10am~4pm) all week long.

The track will be open for practice as normal Sat. June 4th The gates will not open until 9AM so those showing up like it's a TCS event at Oh, dark 30 you will be wasting your time. Remember as far as that day it is a practice day as usual. Sunday it is a different story and you may want to get there early.

Also on Saturday and possibly Sunday bring your own tables as assuming there will be tables could very well be a mistake on your part.
