Im going to a rally offroad event with my rally! I bought tayami rally block tires and they dont have foam
inserts.. do i duck tape inside of just glue with nothing inside? please help! Whats the best for offroad plus a little onroad
no need for foam. and no need for duck tape unless you are going to be doing onroad high speed runs.

Yup no need for foams or taping, the hpi rally tires are the same way. they have somewhat stiffer sidewalls and the lack of foam allows them to grip better off road. think of it like a real car, when u go off roading you generally air down a bit to help with traction. since these dont have air in them, the lack of foam essentally does the same
sorry for the long winded over-complicated response to your question.... lol
Good luck in the Rally! I would love to to see pics and or a vid!

I taped one and not one to see. The taped one is no baloon. The other has balloon
baloon? I put som tamiya rally tires on hpi rims, and they didnt come with foam either. like everyone else said, i dont think u need foam with rally tires
If your holding the car off the ground and revving it up they will balloon for sure. But on the ground running they may not. A rally style event is less about TOP speed as it is about control so you really shouldn't be going fast enough to have any ballooning issues WHILE racing.
Also, the stock rally tires do not have foams either. They are simply hard enough not to need them.
