old tires
« on: February 19, 2014, 07:06:28 AM »
Just got my hands on some old tires, they're in great shape other than being hard as a rock. Is there any home recipe I can use to soften them up? :worried:

You never win a race by focusing on one aspect of the race!  Motor isn't everything, but you better have a good one!  Chassis too!  But remember, a driver can take a slow machine and make it faster!  I may not have/be the best of any of these but I'm trying!
