What rear tires are you running?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was at Sid's from around 1pm to around 7pm today (Monday) with my T4 and ran 100's of laps However my new set of HoleShots were pretty much toast after maybe 4 battery runs about 50 laps or so. The rest of the day i practiced car control with slicks on hard mud

So anyways what tires are you all running on that rock hard surface? Thrashmetal was there and he told me the Bowties are pretty good...Any other suggestions? I'm looking at something a little longer lasting the holeshots are good but just too soft i think...

What about fronts too??? Thanks

i owned a truck for abit and what i learned is the more ribs your tires have in the front the better your truck will turn. as for the rear i ran proline lug nuts which worked good last year until the little pins wore off.

I posted before and have discussed my concerns about the tire wear at the track. I hit a couple practice sessions and the tires where bald after 5 packs but on Sunday racing the tires had almost no wear.
During practice I may dive it harder and drive like a hammer head but in a race its about being smooth maybe that is the differance. Much happier with tire wear on Sunday.

I had ONE set of Bow Ties that I shared between my 2wd and 4wd buggy this Sunday.

They worked very well and they showed a small amount of wear which is acceptable considering I ran 6 qualifiers and 2 mains with them.

If you want to stick with the Hole Shots, maybe you should try the R3 harder compound instead of the softer M3 compound:
1/10 TRUCK:
Hole Shot Part # 8192-02 (M3)
Hole Shot Part # 8192-12 (R3)
Bow Tie Part # 8196-01 (M2)
Bow Tie Part # 8196-02 (M3)

1/10 BUGGY:
Hole Shot Part # 8184-02 (M3)
Hole Shot Part # 8184-12 (R3)
Bow Tie Part # 8186-02 (M3)

agree with Dave

Dave's right. it's about the trigger and having a harder compound.

bowties are great IMO. I also don't mind the softer sponge. I think that it helps the suspension do it's job a bit easier on a rought track.

Yeah the track was chewing tires during the week, but my new Bowties I used on race day still look new after a full day of practice and racing. The Bowties were amazing on the rear. Losi X2000's were good too.

Edit: I used Proline M3 compound or Losi Pink compound

ON 2wd buggy I had Evil Twins in R2 compound.
Used for practice and 2 qualifiers. Show almost no wear. Asthe track dusted over I switched to Bowties and ran the last qualifiers and mains with them both an my 2wd and then switced them to my 4wd.
They still look good.

the problem with the tire wear is the compound... people (including me) were using m3 compound and driving their cars hard with lots of tire spin wearing out their tires... i changed compounds and my tires showed no wear after running for many packs... i also found that the losi rubber fairs a lot better than the proline compounds... if you are going to get a proline tire i suggest the m2 or r3 compounds... i used pink losi compound and it worked well..
