Default When is Panther Tires going to step up?

Okay...we have Proline, JConcepts, Traxxas, AE, RC4WD, Losi and HPI tires (and I am sure a couple more I am not mentioning) for the 2.2/3.0 tires. I have heard rumors of AKA stepping up, but where is Panther?

Any Panther Reps out there want to comment? Any Panther insiders? Anyone?

well, looks like they have entered the market....blue groove style switches (I have a set already), and a new, bigger lug tire (cant remember the name, but matches their new 1/8 tire).

I'm pretty sure a 1:1 looking tire that works good in the sct class is not possible. Might kind of work with a super soft compound, but they'd be bald like the tires everyone keeps complaining about in no time anyway. Decide if you want to look scale or if you want to compete. Watching SC10's uselessly slide around on stock tires made me change my mind pretty quickly.

Again with this. Like the guy above me said if you want to compete then buy a set if you wanna spin out of control all day then buy some from HPI, Traxxas, Or the proline switch. But from there don't bring up that they are a pin. We know they are a pin look at the pic. I want something competetive because I race these not just sit back and bash. Have you ever took the time to look at a real truck and how the tires are siped. There is a whole mess of money getting thrown around on these trucks and they have the know how to get them to hook up. But I have never seen a fullsize truck on pins because the would be gone in the first corner. The only way a full size truck can get traction is because of the sheer weight that they have. If you want to weigh down your SCT then be my guest but I want performance and I am gonna run these and run circles around you at the track.

I am running them at the local track tomorrow with some goosebumps, and calibers to see what works the best. Yeah I had just enough money left to pick up a set with some of Ofna's yellow foams and they are a nice soft compound.


Sorry for the rant. We should have a Oh my god they are pin tires thread where these bleeding hearts can go to whine about not looking scale.

The new Panther SC Boa has been added to the Panther website today.

http://www.pantherteam.com/index.php...roducts_id=333

We changed the core on both the T890 and T891 to make the carcass a little thicker and added ribbing to the 1/8 buggy side of the tire.

Happy to help! Panther has been wanting to jump into the SC market....maybe they are a little bit behind, but rest assured when they release a tire it WILL work. It isnt cheap to create a mold.

Default Panther SC Boa

Tested the Boa last night. It was awesome. A great tire for a dusty/loamy track. We were testing just rears for wear. I must say they held up perfect with NO signs of wear!

I would post pics but it says I'm not allowed.
