I'm "wondering" how many could be interested in Wonder Rubber Tires for our hard body cars?? We're always looking for a little "Less" bite it seems with most of our cars.  Perhaps Wonder Rubber would be the answer?  Anyone have contact with one of the tire manufacturer's to see if they would make them?  I'm sure we can get Debby to stock them IF we can find them.  Need 1.1" diameter and 3/32 axle size. And I think big hub would work. I know I'd like to try them!!


She's real fine, my 409!!!

The problem is I doubt Stu starts with donuts big enough to make 1.1".

 

Brian(B&E) is here tonight racing Hardbody.

 

Nothing right now.

 

He wants to concentrate on his existing stuff for awhile.

 

Maybe for the future.

I used them on the FCR hard bodies we use to race at SAL Raceway 910's if I rember correctly. Yep i had them going crazy for a bit, I kept quit for a few weeks and when someone asked about what tires I was using I mentioned Parma MX. Hehehe... Yep Kenny at least got to sell his MX tires that were not selling at the time. It was fun while it lasted.

Joseph Migliaccio. Karma it's a wonderful thing.

Some people are like Slinkies... they're really good for nothing... but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I use Scaleauto Procomps. They're more expensive but come in different hardness and 27.5 mm, they sell just donuts as well.
