New from Matrix Racing tires, the Flex rim, has been developed with the help of some of the best drivers in the world. It allows a more even flexibility which greatly improves grip and traction. Tested at the Italian Nationals held in Bologna, the wheel proved successful with Lamberto Collari, Alberto Picco and Michele Romagnoli taking 1-2-3 using the new design.
Italian tire company Matrix have announced the introduction of their new line of rims for both 1/8th and 1/10th scale on road. The new rims will feature carbon fiber inside which reduces the weight by around 12% and increases the stability of the plastic even when the temperature is very hot. They have already tested these new rims at the 1/10th Pre Worlds in Houston with good results, have won the 1/10th Euro B championship and have also tested it at the 1/8th Euro B championship in Monaco, where they achieved 2nd place. Matrix have also released a new packaging system made by flow-pack, the same system as used for food. With this new packaging the costumer can stock materials for a long time without losing the quality and performance of the tires and going forward all Matrix tire lines will be sold with this new packaging.
