GRP 1/8th scale Foam Tyres

GRP 1/8th scale Foam Tyres

For 2008 GRP 1/8th scale on road tyres have been completely renewed following on going research and tests made in co-operation with team drivers and major model manufacturers from this category. Improvements have been made to all elements of the finished tyre such as foam compound, rim, gluing and more, with the biggest single change coming from the company’s new automatic gluing system which eliminates all elastic tension inside the tyre’s structure, guaranteeing lots of grip and long durability. Also improved is the foam, which is made with a special process and then treated to improve grip and life, and all hardness shores are checked automatically to ensure consistency. Finally, new wheels have been made with a special plastic material, and together with a reinforced yet flexible structure, they ensure no reduction in performance in all temperatures.
