Uri Valdé, PN-Racing pilot shares a little with us about the wide variety of tires that we have in stock for the Kyosho MiniZ, and also gives some pointers on the types of surfaces they run best on.
Here´s a photo illustrating the custom of using rubber tires on rcp-tracks.
With 66 names registered two categories and fearless drivers, the Italian organizers put together one of the greatest of the MiniZ events circuit. Well known drivers and also novices went shoulder to shoulder last Friday, knowing very well that an amazing week was at hand! At one o´clock in the afternoon Stock motors were handed out where there were more than 47 individuals registered, of those who took part in the qulifying legs. It must be noted that some drivers had a bit of a hard time with setting up their cars due to the high amount of grip of the Madrid track. This was primarily due to the use of rubber tires as opposed to silicone ones, which really increased the traction of the circuit, finally allowing drivers to clock times comparable to those recorded on tracks in other countries such as the United States.
We´ll fill you in shortly on the race results.
As of the end of February the new Kyosho DBX 2.0. is now on sale in Spain. It incorporates the new Syncro Transmitter (with the 2.4 Ghz system) that was featured at that Nurenburg Fair.
For some time now on the RCP Foam Tracks, the kyosho 20 rear tire with tread pattern or the 6º PN Racing pattern. To date, the front tires available with the best results have been those by Atomic with 30º and 40º hardness with groove patterns, and the PN Racing RSF20 and RSF15.
A tire that from now on we believe will give a lot to talk about is the front Kyosho 30º tire that provides a bit more spin than the 30º PN Racing RSF15 and the Atomic 30º. Also, for certain types of track outline these can help us cut down our lap times.
