I've seen alot of tire ballooning videos in you tube.
Has anyone done a video comparison between a tape tire and a stock tire (with no tape) - to show a visual reduction in tire ballooning.
I am unsure how effective the tire taping is. The centrifugal force during tire spining causes the center part of the rubber to extend. Taping the inside of the tire method - it is only the adhesive of the tape that is holding the rubber from deforming. But is the adhesive strong enough to hold the rubber from deforming? Then again it is only the adhesive and not the tape material.
Factor in the elasticity of the duck tape material. I confirmed duck tape elasticity by pulling the tape, I observed the tape has an eleasticity on it. I think this is ineffective? I maybe wrong - a video proof will put my curiosity to rest.
My reasons for this is because I tape one of tires from the outside ( which I believe gives a higher holding down force in preventing the rubber from deforming - both the adhesive and the duck tape material is holding down the tire dimension in place ) I then elevated the e-revo, this allowed the tires to spin freely. I visually saw the tape and the untape tires to show the same amount of ballooning.
