It is finally here, BSR's 10th Scale Foam Tire Compound information. After acquiring BSR I had a lot of work to do in this area to find out exactly what was needed and how to organize it. With the ever changing racing environments and equipment we race and use today, we at BSR set out to get the job done. After nearly 2 years of new R&D we have accomplished the goal. R&D is still on going and always will be on going to continue to keep BSR as a top performing tire with winning results.
10th scale Oval racing is very car setup orientated. This is what drives many of us to continue racing for many years. We at BSR hope to help all oval racers in this area to make your racing experience more enjoyable by supplying you with good information on our tires and also much advice on car set in our section on Setup Tips. Many of our top drivers will be sharing their setup tips there that make them successful.
