Also is going up to a harder tire the right thing to do if the tire is glazing?
SO magentas as a rear wouldnt be very good at all? I bought some jacos and ment to get pinks but i got magentas by accident so i got
2 pair magenta rears
1 pair magenta fronts
1 pair dbl pink fronts
1 pair lilac fronts.
2 pair of trc yellow rim pink rears
Im trying to use what i have as im broke after this weekend lol..
Glazed tires on a new rug sounds off.
What tire sauce is everyone using ?
At the the iic race this year on fresh CRC rug, tires never glazed, and everyone used the same tire sauce, Jack the Gripper.
If you have racers using different sauces, you can get very inconsistent results. Best for all to use the same stuff.
Having said that, black fronts should not glaze as they don't heat up and get sticky like Lilac, Purple & Magenta do.
Magenta Front and Rear is money for mod 12th, usually too much grip for blinky.
