Default BRM question?

I'm so stoked because I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Carrera set with extra track and bought my first 2 BRM classics. I can't believe I waited this long but I couldn't be any more excited. The run great like I thought they would. I have some questions for those of you who run BRMs. Is it normal for the rear tires to chunk apart like one on my 917? And this is after only 1 hour of running. Does anyone sell the stock BRM treaded tires with the tire brand (Firestone/Goodyear) on the side walls? I'm kind of particular about keeping my stock tires and trying to keep the cars looking new. And also, is there a way to adjust/increase braking on these cars? I have a 23' straight that they really get moving on but they don't seem to slow down like a slot it or Racer car. Still a ton of fun though. Thanks

They have brakes; just remember they are much heavier than most 1/32 cars.

BRM has decals available for tire sidewalls.

Default We have Firestone and Goodyear with our Trans Am cars.

The ScaleRacing Trans Am cars come with Goodyear or Firestone decals.
