We accomplished the first 2 task easily....#3, is a hard one. The realistic LeMan type low profile, high offset wide wheel/tires package in rubber....if everyone has no problem spending $60 USD a set of rubber, it will be out now...however, the true is, we are only more then OK to spend 1/2 of that....$30 USD. That is the problem.....for foams, we can do that for $40. And these foam, when running on carpet, will last at least 2-3 race day easy. But at the end, still are foams, still the RC tires that does not match the class.....LeMan.

We are working on 2 major tires brand right now for the rubbers....I think we will debut them at 2014 TITC at Thailand for the LeMan series there....with 130-140* track temperature with 13.5T motor, I think it will be a very good test before it is out for the market...
Where we staying this year for TITC? :P
