From Raw Speed RC:
Raw Speed is excited to announce our newest tire for 1/10 buggies, the Rip Tide! The riptide is is based on a totally redesigned tire carcass that is designed to create a uniform contact patch as the chassis leans while cornering.
Our customers asked us for a tire that breaks in and comes up to pace faster. On tracks that are not abrasive or on days when you are attending larger races the rip tide will be ready to race much faster than our previous generations of tire.
