    while I agree, usually that is used to ensure people are using "legal" tires. Ortmann uses the color on the inside of the tire so it is not as obvious from the outside but it is unfortunately a necessity.
    A very reasonable and efficient way to keep control.

    But Michael Ortmannīs method IMHO is better because it does not break the overall impression of the slotcar like the colored tyres do.

    But as usual - tastes differ and are not discussable. And this is good.
