    Where can I buy HSP/Redcat Racing/Himoto tire inner foam??!!

    Hi

    I have a HSP Savagery which I know are the same as Redcat Racing and Himoto Racing etc.
    Recently I bought 89104 tires for a 1/8 truck but one of the tires have the incorrect inner foam which is a much softer.

    Is there some way where I can buy just the foam itself or do I have the buy another set just to get the correct foam?

    Ive added a picture so you can see the correct foam and what it should look like, the 62011 is the wrong foam and the 89104 is the correct one I need

    RE: Where can I buy HSP/Redcat Racing/Himoto tire inner foam??!!

    Dunno if this helps, but I've MADE my own foam inserts from stuff I have laying around.  "Egg-crate" foam for instance. I used a steak knife to cut off the egg-crate bumps, then traced an appropriate-sized circle on the foam, and cut it out with the knife.  Using a sharp hobby knife, I cut along the inner bead of the tire, then folded it back over itself and the old foam fell out.  Slipped the new foam over the wheel, then folded the tire back over it, and re-glued the bead.  REALLY made a big difference. see if you can find a block of the kind of foam you like, and make your own!
    Just a schmoe....

    Yea I having been thinking of this on the same sort of idea, finding my own foam which can be easily obtained rather than ordering of the net and paying money which just seem...
    a bit too much for foam.

    Great tip mate will look more into it
