Well, I mean, you would say that. tongue.gif I'll take a look that them, Cheers Bud.
BTW, gluing NSR Rubber to NSR wheels, what the hell do you use? Tried a few things, Flower and water etc rolleyes.gif But nothing seems to work. Gluing ST to NSR well, easy, Silicon glue. Works a treat. but not on rubber.

As the Super Tyres are silicon I don't think they'll work very well with what other people are using, the silicones will get covered in used rubber, and the other racers will moan that you are ruining their grip.

This is what I fear. Not to worried about the other racers and their grip. It's all about advantage. But, the picking up of their rubber, now that does concerns me. so swings and roundabouts.

Check the rules - most clubs will have a rule that says must be rubber tyres and so super tyres will not be allowed, neither will the sponge ones slavatori refers to

Flexi super glue is good for sticking on NSR rubber.
Flower and water is useful for cake making.

Matt's right when he says check the rules. Quite a few won't allow silicon, I think you'll find quite a lot that race on rubber tyres only and quite a lot that race on sponge.

I've tried Silicones in mixed compound racing, they grip brilliantly for the first couple of laps and then go off very fast.

Better change the rules on the length of time you race as well Saviour 2-3 laps will suit your Silicons after that your mates running "proper" rubber will be having the last laugh

OH, Bother. I have a set of wheels with NSR E's, so a quick pit stop if needs be. ST are the way forward.
