702RC in LV was the first track to run the tyre. We literally received them 2 days before and simply could not get them to work.

Some of us had the old tyres and ran them. The rest who didnít struggled the whole race. I for one am not jumping down that rabbit hole this year.

I simply do not see a reason for the switch to the rides, when everyone was happy with the old tyres. They are also readily available, unlike the F1 tyres.

Additionally M chassis is supposed to be a scale class. The ride wheel / tyres are not very scale looking.

Last cost: The M chassis premount specs were already pricey to begin with for what they were.. but price could be justified by the amount of time they last. The rides are $54 + tax for a set.. so even more expensive and 35% cost of the chassis.

S-grip are nice but on black carpet there was a lot of gluing. Also I heard that older s-grips were a bit different than the new ones, is that true? For the Ride mini tires I use SXT red sauce, it seems to work well. What tire sauce did you guys used at 702?

We only use SXT.. itís the only sauce allowed. He briefly had the red dot in stock but after the iic we only seem to receive the original SXT 3.0

Tamiya green insert works fine. Blue will work as well but a bit more aggressive.

Did I get a bad batch?
I'm no mini expert, but it sounds like the traction came up during the day thus the traction rolling. The tires coming unglued of course is an issue to be remedied. It sounds like you need to begin to glue the sidewalls of your front tires. Glue up to the writing on sidewall at first.This is a carpet racing must. I know you are on ashpalt, but this will solve your issues instantly. I know it may seem unfamiliar and kooky. You will thank me later.

Default Ride 33 tires

Also, watch how you are applying tire sauce on your front tires. If applying full sauce up front, try to apply to half the tire. If half is still too aggressive then backer' down to 1/4 application. I've even ran no sauce up front to calm the car down. Just clean and go.

Thanks, I thought i had a bad batch LOL

Thank you, I went as far as no sauce up front. I guess the car needs a whole different set up. It didn't like my S grip set up

The ride mini tires are little versions of 10th TC scale race tires. The M07/M08 can be considered beginner TC when compared to the old minis. 100% setup will be drastically different from the old S-tire setups.
