Hi, if using Urethane tyres on the rear, would it be wise to NOT use Silicone or Rubber tyres on the front?

What are Zero Grip tyres made from?

Did I mention before you can use nail varnish on the fronts or even super glue if you are careful. Have you thought about a live axle? that could help with the front end tyre problem.

I don't have front end tyre problem. I'm saying you don't usually use Urethanes and Silicones together on the same track, so was curious to know what Zero Grip front tyres are made from, because surly if your front tyres are made from Silicone and you have Urethane on the rears, and you have your front tyres set touching the track, would this not affect the grip of the Urethanes having tyres made from Silicone on the front.
That's why I'm asking what the Zero grip tyre are made from, or does the fact that they are Zero Grip not really have an effect on the the rears even if the fronts are made from Silicone.

I know you can get Urethane Zero Grip fronts though, I guess they would be the best choice to go with Urethane rear tyres.

Yes I've heard about painting the tyres with nail varnish, good idea actually.

I tried a live axle but got an electric shock and my tyres melted.

To be honest the cheapest way and to save you changing all your fronts just pop down to boots and get some clear nail varnish job done.

0grips still pick up rubber or whatever is laid down on any track given time.

About the live axle, how did you manage to do that?

All it is is a hollow axle with one wheel done up at one end and an eyelet on the other to stop the wheel coming off
