The track is unsealed asphalt and is very fast. It is rough on the tires and my 6 run's from yesterday are done, they got really slick after about the 9th run. I did some more testing on the sidewall issue and i adjusted for a little more camber and caber gain through suspension travel and the rims never scraped the track like yesterday. I run a losi type r w/ a 10.5 brushless at BD and a 13.5 at the Bowl.
The other racer ran brand new out of the package blues, ran well for the first 5 runs, then just fell completely off. But the first five runs were very good ones and the feedback was generally positive until the 6th run.
Track temps were about 135 (temped it this time), and the tires came off at about 115 at their hottest run, 107 at their coolest one.
When my tires fell off it was a very controllable change, meaning they didn't just get greasy and throw me all over the track. They started losing their grip gradually and when they were finally done, they still were able to get me around the track just not nearly as fast as when they were "on", difficult for me to verbalize but i hope i am conveying the idea.
As a spec tire i wouldn't mind running these, not sure about how long they last for the club racer though i'll continue to run them and give feed back.
Jack ... Thanks for your hard work bro!! These tires are DEFINITELY an improvement over the last set of Jaco tires i've run, not only that the wheels are a real crowd pleaser looks wires.
They run an xray fk 07,I ran 6 run blue and EVERYONE noticed!! They all loved the rims.
This is what they look like after 6 runs:
