Looks like traction may decrease.

My questions are:

-How thick is the tape?

-Does Kyosho have matching front sponge tape also?

-Do the rear tires spin true?

-Why can't you use servo tape?

-How is the traction after install?

Servo tape?

Its similar to Servo Tape, although, it is sized properly for the rear wheel. I havent used any, yet... but traction should increase, since there is more contact patch, and it should allow a little compression under load to further increase contact patch.

It will also increase rollout (as shown by the pictures), so you have to gear accordingly.

This would be good for the motormounts that do not allow axle height adjustment to increase ground clearance for a bumpy track.

I plan to get some servo tape, and try myself. I just cannot justify buying at the price that they sell it for.

Anyone give this stuff a try? curious to the results.

Quite a few of us at MC3 use it. I find it gives good consistent traction until the end of the life of the rear tires. Also, I find it increases rear traction.

thanks for some input on it, Maybe I'll get some and give it a try next time a place and order.

are you using the Kyosho stuff or a substitute?
