I'm amazed these weren't more popular as replacement pads. Were they really made from a higher friction material, like the Scott-Mathauser pads, or were they simply made from the same sort of colored, soft plastic that is sometimes used in BMX pads? Or... were they made from the type of colored silicon rubber that was used for slot car tires? Inquiring minds want to know :-) Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia (USA)
