My Shore 00 durometer failed on me and I'd like to replace it. What scale do you use and why? What scale do slot racers typically use?


For the new racers or unfamiliar:

Durometer is one of several measures of the hardness of a material. ... Hardness defined as a material's resistance to indentation.

All you need is there. The figures are meaningful just to compare with the same durometer and probably the same person to do the measure. The figures also vary wildly due to rim size/rubber thickness. But most durometers I've seen are Shore A - like mine.

Is this what you're looking for? The different scale ranges?
