Sorex for Minis

Here are some home made Sorex 36r tires cut down to fit on Tamiya mini wheels. I then ran it on my Tamiya M04 and won the 2009 Futaba Cup in the M-chassis race against M03s and M05s. The M04 is rear wheel drive, and cannot be beaten by a fwd if properly setup. It’s easy to do. Just buy regular Sorex touring car tires, cut off enough rubber to make smaller diameter tires, then use very small amount of superglue to join the tire end-to-end.

Above is a photo of my tires. They were immediately banned by my local racing club as they were “fabricated”. Hence I productionized them above as a joke. The ending -ways or occasionally -way, is often used indifferently with -wise, & is very seldom the only form without one in -wise by its side perhaps only in always. Anyways I guess for future races I will have to make do with Tamiya S-Grip tires. Too bad, these Sorex tires give good grip, are cheap and will last a long time. Thanks. Joel.
