Team Associated have released these new RC18T foam tires that have a 4mm larger wheel diameter than their predecessors. The larger wheel gives the best of both worlds for foam tire racing, a reduced sidewall height while keeping the correct tire outer diameter. The reduced sidewall results in improved steering consistency through the corners while maintaining forward traction. Racers no longer need to ‘true’ the foam tire down to an incorrect outer diameter just to achieve less foam on the sidewall. Associated have also released a range of nine new 48-pitch pinion gears from 27T–35T to enlarge your gearing options. More teeth equals more top end speed.
