You'll have to much front push and be to loose in the rear. You'll see if you go that route with all hard compounds.

I've ran all hard compounds recently. It works but it has to be on crete and yes you will have push. The rear will be loose as well but nothing bad. Asphalt runs are ok providing the temp is hot. I'd tell everyone to change tires before doing anything to your tires. You risk damaging them if you hold no knowledge of what your doing. Just a honest FYI.

I hear what Tobys saying yet everyones giving the guy a hard time. In the world of true rc racing. Not saying rc karting isn't but what we do is. Being invited to nationals and races over seas is what true rc racing is about. Those are the serious sides of rc. Glue and other tiny secrets is what we use and how we win. We know nothing else but tune, tweak and test.

I think most if not all perhaps should just stick with whats easiest. To change a tire is nothing to a newbie or even to guys like you two. Why make things harder than what they are. We all went through this subject years ago down in Florida. People wanting to do this, try that. Buy the most highdollar this and so on. Most of you who read and post remember that year. People changing the battery area, running costly motors. I can go on and on. This was why in 2002 we created the rule sheet. Our kart racing is not about money into your rc nor knowledge. Its about driving and having fun with those at the track. I've said it before, the karts are simple so don't make them harder than what they are. Back to the tires? I say if you choose the glue or truing, your on your own. We will not accept tire returns with glued sides or that have been tru'd down. Happy rc karting.........

Who cares about glues and stuff. Besides the rims and tires aren'tt expensive to replace. Come to think of it I need to buy 4 off you next week. Payday!

Let Todd or I know what you need and we'll send them out asap. By the way, did you get your stock up and running?

Any freebies this month if I order a couple of sets? I could use 4 new fronts. I guess I'll go with hard again.

Sorry no freebies at this time. I did give away a free driver suit on Friday to a guy who just bought a kart with a nude driver. He decided nude wasn't the way he wanted to go ROLF! Felt sorry for the guy and rushed him out one with helmet asap! LOL LOL...

Ok, heres the deal, I run hard compound tires all around like your asking. I never really said much as I didn't want it to come off as a sale tatic to move tires. Honestly, you only loose a couple of seconds and thats if you tag your corners and drive your lines. My suggestion is not to change tires until your ready. Its not really worth replacing them asap but I will say, the wear is a lot less than the firms I was running.

Hard fronts and firm rears are the best multi surface tire for racing. You can run hards but to me they'll never be soft enough.
