hey thanks, i want to figure out how he makes his molds and possibly make some just like his modified iroks. and maybe if he is nice enough exact replicas but i doubt he would like that.

Is he gonna be in town? I still have a set of tires in the same bag he gave my last year when I went to Germany.

Last time I bought from him it was $22 shipped per set. I lost his email some how. Last time I talked to him he was working on a new mold. It had more rounded edges and some nice side grip. I think they looked kind of like moabs. I thought the pics of it were posted on a spanish forum (minizeta or something similar).

Arch, If he replies to your email, could you ask him to shoot me a mail? Id like to get his adress for future reference. Ive actually got a need for a new set of his tires, and a replacement for one of my older 'claws.

hrdrvr- If he is selling the new tires you talked about, let me know. I could use mini moabs for a project I'm doing right now, and $22 shipped per set is not bad.

I just saw your SSMT project and your request for better tires than the aoshimas. Ive never had the aoshimas, but I dont see how any model kit tire could compare to his. Once I get in touch with him, Ill let you know if he went to production on the moabs. Otherwise, Ill atleast see if he is still making the 'claws and what he is charging for them.

Kel

Thanks man, even the regular claws will probably be better than the aoshimas. The aoshimas may look scale, but their grip is not all that great. But if he is making the mini moabs, they would be sick on my jeep.

Kel, I am also looking for a set of his tires, if you find out anything try to let me know. I am usually at scale 4x4 on the micro forums. I saw your post over there also. I would think that his tires would be a big hit on scale 4x4, probably get a few buyers. Maybe try posting over there for a group buy if you find out you can get them. Shipping may work out better that way.

hey if you are looking for a set of swampers i am making those, and i sell them for $20 shipped any where in the lower 48 states, but if you are looking for something bigger cooldragon's tires are the way to go. i am going to be making larger tires such as the iroks but not till i can sell enough tires to off set the cost of new materials for molds.

what material are you making your swampers from? i may be interested....

no reply from daniel yet on the dragon claw tires. btw, becareful about posting email address's online. i would prefer it be done via email/pm as bots troll for things like that to exploit.

i am using a urethane rubber from smooth on i don't remember the actual name but they work great. i think there was another member that made tires from the same material, maybe davkin? not sure if he posted here but i know he sold some on ebay.

I think RCM used that stuff for his tires. That compound is grippy and seems to hold up well.

its a different place that i get my material from but its the same idea, im to lazy to call up the place and order etc.

Have we had any response from cooldragon yet? I saw some of his posts on that spanish site, so he must still be active in the mini scene. I just hope he is still makin' tires!

What is up here, any one know anything about cooldragon and his tires?

Jimbo, I know you make and sell tires (and good tires at that) add another 13 behind my user name and it should look familiar. :)

I sent him an email to the address posted here, and also found his old paypal address, and sent one there as well. I havent heard anything back from him, but I remember it taking him a little time last time I got in touch with him. Ill post here if I hear anything. If I dont Ill try contacting him again. I know of a couple of spanish forums where he used to be active. Ill try over there if emails keep failing.
