Hi

Can some one please tell me witch tires to use with the slot.it Le Mans 1985 Porche 956c part number CW07?

I normally use the tires from slot.it.

Thanks in advance.

This might get a wider audience in the 132 slot cars forum, but tire choice usually depends on the track type, whether you're using magnets or not, and if there are any rules for any possible competitive racing.

Usually, softer rubber tires get better grip, but you can also go with silicone tires if the track is plastic and kept clean.

Around here, the tires of choice tend to be P6 or F22, which work well on a variety of tracks.

Greg that was my point with P6's F 15/22 the standard tyres is good but they can be made much better if you wish

For me the whole part of Digital is creating an equal as race as possible without spending hundreds on cars
and hours on preperation.
But actually relying on race craft and tatics to get the results

Ah, I get it now. That's a good point. If silicones didn't rely on such a clean surface and to also be cleaned regularly themselves, then I'd probably have more of them.
That's one of the things I like about urethane tires. The surface doesn't need to be spotless, and they don't go off as quickly. Once the track has had your typical dusting, you can run urethanes all day long without needing repeated cleaning. Urethanes also do not respond to treatment, at least none that I've tried, and no one has told me about one that works.

But most of all, what I like best about urethane is how easy they are to true. Like buttah!
You can turn a wobbly wheel into a true one with urethanes to even things out. Not so with silicone.

hi
i have just tried a pair of urethane's on my routed mdf track. The car they are fitted to is a maseratti mc12.

This car usually get's slated for poor handling when running magless,with the above tyres fitted it is a joy to use and handles superbly..

I have now ordered sets for the rest of my lmp range.

Silicones tend to give there best for a handfull of laps and then tail off until they are cleaned again.
