Each track is different; so you would have to compare Pressure Points & Bar Codes on your track. I think Bar Codes are normally the nicest tire to drive on low/no dust conditions and Pressure Points excel on tracks with a little more dust.
ok thanks, the gold v1s are really nice but have less corner speed, i just like em bc they dont rip like other tires.

no need to burn them and soak em in wd40 to soften them, they are nice outa the package, I will be looking forward to v2 golds

White is firmer than Orange. Its best for high temps / highly abrasive surfaces where you want to smooth the steering out a bit.

From my experience down here in Australia, Orange is most similar to red and best when it is warm. The great thing about the JC range is that you can also get Bar Codes in Blue, which work really well when it is cool but still black groove (eg Cactus in the morning). I usually use them when it is less than 15C (60F).

Ray Munday gave a great description. Also keep in mind that JC barcodes (orange compound) have won last few years there, so I wouldn't single out Losi tires as the way to go anymore .

Would you say V2 or V1's are the way to go? Thanks

For Cactus; V2's seem to be the way to go.

hey, med high bite clay wet. Little to no dust on the line. Would gold work better then blues? Guys have been playing with each (v1)...Blue seem to be more popular. I find the gold push me more which is nice. Any recommendation?

Normally I would say gold for wet clay; but the majority normally rules .

I just got my Pressure points in blue compound and either the tire is made too big or the closed cell foams in them are too small, Tires on rims have a 4mm air gap between the rubber and the foam, Ive never had a pair of SC tires fit this loose all the way around the tire.

Thanks!

Sounds like an insert. If the tire fits the rim correctly without insert, then it certainly is the insert. Email us directly and we will get you replacement inserts ASAP.
