I got the fattys. I was just messing around with these for the longest time because I only had these.

MafiaS, I can get some video after a few days of Gandini performance on a waxed tile floor. I really need to get some video footage of some stuff anyhow.
Cause I ride around town on my low-rider bicycle.

Lookin forward to it hachi..

You mention you are testin' the Gandini's on waxed floor? I am assuming they are ten times better on concrete correct?

Sorry if this is taken away from your thread man...

No worries. My current draw question was answered.

I like how they perform on a waxed tile floor. On concrete it's easy to flip because it grips so well, but a waxed tile floor is smoother. It will usually slide before it flips. It has flipped with all Gandini soft foams on all 4 wheels. Not much, but once in a while. If you've ever run a MR-02, then you'll know that these things tend to not flip with stock tires on concrete at full speed on a hard turn. Their slick tires, low center of gravity and good weight displacement are key in this. So, if I've got tires that are making it flip on a smooth floor, then you know the tires are good and the car has got some speed. With Gandini soft foams on all 4 wheels this will flip very easily on concrete. You really need to put Gandini hard foams or slick rubber tires on the front wheels for concrete racing. Keep the Gandini soft foams in the back though.
