I agree with the that, someone needs to make just a swamper tsl, it would be a hit.

i just wanted to give big props to RC4wd on this compound
it is just insanely soft and sticky. had second comp on these yesterday and they did amazing. landed me a 2nd in Class 1. and i had the truck sitting on my leather seats in teh jeep, and after the drive home, it was like someone superglued them to the seats. i had to give them a decent tug to release them from the seats lol. with a loud suction/ripping sound as they came loose lol. yet dust and dirt doesnt stick to them.
amazing compound RC4wd! cant wait for more!!!!

Almost the same sound when your Avatar sits on the seats?

Just got a quick question. Geared more toward the RC4WD guys but I guess anybody can answer. What does it take to change the tire lineup over to the new compound? Cant you just whip up a batch of X2 SS,and pour it in all the molds? It seems like it's pretty straight-forward but I'm sure there's more to it.

It isn't like your Creepy Crawlers that you got for Christmas. There is more to it than that. There is inventory cycles and also testing the tires. Not all tires react the same to the same compounds.

You dont actually pour anything, the rubber is a solid block when it is put in to the mold. It gets heated and pressurised in the mold to make the shape.

I know this all too well.



The question still remains.......why make new patches () with the old crappy compound?
