Mark – Before I update the rules with the new wheel/tire selection I want to confirm that they will work as I hope they will. Once I have some laps with them I will update the rules with the exact wheel/tire spec.
The only bearings that are allowed are the stock closed bearings.
Lubricants? Use what you have. No need for rules regarding lubricants at this time.
OH…and is there anything special that needs to be done to true these? I see that the RC tire truers use a blade instead of a grinding surface.
In my 1/24 days, we never trued foam tires…you bought them the diameter you wanted, then installed and ran them at speeds up to 70 mph, so they were true out of the canister. But that was a really long time ago, now…
Ugh…use care when ordering. My brain seized and I ordered the tires identified in the currently posted rules (RS-204) even though I KNEW we were supposed to be getting the Scale-Auto tires shown above. A case of old-brain disease. That’s why I was hoping Marty’s tires didn’t have the red stripe today, because neither do mine! 🙂
Oh well…I rarely trust my brain any more, and here’s yet another reason to let it out to pasture!! At least I have a few months to rectify this issue. Anyone want some Revo Slot foams?
