PostSubject: All About Tires, including HOMEMADE TIRES!!   Mon Aug 13, 2012 6:50 pm

So there are several videos out there about making your own tires from used bicycle tires. I got so fed up with my Kyosho 1/8 scale Inferno VE Racing Spec tires getting all torn up within only a few minutes of racing. once they hit a rock or corner they'res torn rubber all in the air. why dthey don't make them like they make bycicle tires or car tires, with steel mesh it evades me!

so here are a couple cool videos any ideas guys, anyone tried these?

let me know your thoughts guys

i like to race on road and off road..

Interesting idea!

One good thing about our track is as the sand is soft the tyre wear isn't too much of an issue!

bearings and other moving parts do of course wear quicker though...
