Default New RC4WD Interco tires - 1.9 Thornbirds and 1.55 TSL SS

Relive the off-roading days of yore in smaller scale with RC4WD's new Interco tires.

Interco Thornbirds - 4.59 x 2.00 x 1.9




These are going to be an Axialfest release then available at some point after that. If they are anything like the 1:1 versions, these will be beloved or hated with the burning passion of a thousand suns and nothing in between.

Interco Narrow TSL SS - 3.75 x 1.37 x 1.55




The TSL SS appear to be an licensed update on the much loved 1.55 Rock Stompers but have been shrunk down to 3.75 but in the much better X2S3 compound.

I like the 1.55 offering.

Oh and thornturds at least they got the tread right hope they perform much better than the 1:1 tire.

Turdbirds!

Without question the worst tire Interco ever produced, not sure why they'd bother replicating that one..

Weird, must be a new width or O.D. - because those have been out for ages in 1.9":

Not ATV tires necessarily, just those Brazilians get pretty hardcore about their mud tires:



Also it's pretty neat that a handful of tires from that thread actually have scale offerings now.

Yep - I posted in my Enduro thread about it as I plan on installing the Thornbirds on it as soon as I can get a set:

RC4WD not only removed them from their site yesterday, they also replied to an email I sent about product ETA with this :

"I do not have any information as to how soon these will hit the shelf.

My only recommendation is to keep an eye out for the automated email

Skyler
RC4WD Support Team"


I had clicked on "Notify me when in stock" and emailed them about having posted on this forum about requesting a scale version of the 1:1 about a year and a half ago...

Kinda bummed, and keeping my fingers crossed as to their prompt release!

I did actually call them today, as my email was sent before they were deleted from the site - got Skylar again - he did say they were coming out eventually, just no ETA at this time. He also said that I should still get a notification email.

I am also planning on picking up the bigger Patagonias...

My crawlin' bud and I are each ordering a set after we get the email back on providing military identification for the extra 10% off...

Not yet... haven't run the Enduro, either.

My crawlin' buddy has run them on his TRX-4 Bronco - said they were working really well!

They are a bit large for the Enduro unless I basically remove all the fender flares...

I may be sitting on them until...

... Capra?
