There are many variables that affect slot car tire performance — track configuration, track surface, track power levels, car/motor type, chassis setup and driving style are just a few examples. With this in mind, Quick Slicks™ high-performance silicone tires are available in "Soft" (Discontinued), "Firm" and "Extra-Firm" compounds to let you determine which one is best suited for your specific requirements.
The Quick Slicks EXTRA FIRM compound silicone tires have a higher Shore A rating than the FIRM Quick Slicks compound. Like all Quick Slicks, gluing and truing is NOT required. However, more serious racers will often glue/true their tires to improve tire performance and overall handling.
- Rounded outer sidewalls on all Quick Slicks give them a realistic appearance like real tires. The rounded outer sidewalls appear realistic regardless of a given tire's outer diameter - no unrealistic, bulging sidewalls.
- Quick Slicks designed for a specific wheel are the same width regardless of outer diameter - an important consideration when rules require tires to fit under the car body and you want to experiment with different tire diameters.
- Quick Slicks provide excellent grip on all racing surfaces - plastic or wood (painted). The cleaner the racing surface, the better the grip.
