Is there a different odorless sauce that works better with these tires maybe?
I ran the "S" compound on the gray carpet. 35 fronts and either 35 or 30 rears. That was also using SXT 3.0, 17.5 and 13.5 cars.

I will say that JFT wheels and foam are high quality and worth every penny. The cost of the foam doughnuts compared to other brands are similar in price or just a few ¥ more. I've only tried out the wheels with different flexes characteristic and I could really feel the difference in how the car handled. As for the foams, I haven't tried them yet. My local hobby shop - FUTABA Pro Shop doesn't have them in stock. But I will try them at my local track ----> Yatabe Arena!!!

Default wobbled rim

most of people just talk about foam and doesn't talk about rim. This is very strange for me.

now many people drive rear tire around 40.5 to 42.0mm. that mean there is only 2mm layer of foam by 38mm rim. If rim wobble for 0.5mm then there will be 1.5mm and 2.5mm thickness layer of foam.

If car is running at 40 miles per hour at 42.0mm rear tire then rear tire rpm will be 8000rpm (without slip rate)

please imagine what will happen If your real car tire have unbalanced tire for 1/4oz ?

Just had my first experience with JFT Blue stripe spec tire. My local track is grey carpet lo traction. The wheels felt very consistent for the entire run. Looking forward to next round of testing.

I've went used Pro-One wheels then switched to CRC and BSR wheels. Just recently tryign the JFT notice the wheels are the utmost truest and the fitment onto the rear hubs is excellent, as well as putting the bearings in the front wheels.

Where are you getting the JFT control tire? I've been unable to find them anywhere.

I bought 6 sets these from Xenon a week before Snowbirds. I think Scotty is stocking them all the time now.

I'd like to know as well (where to get the spec tires). I tried to Message them on FB several weeks ago, but got no response. Does anyone besides XenonUSA stock them?

Which JFT tyres would be best for asphalt? I assume the A compound, but the options are limited. I'm currently running Ulti J (soft rear, medium front).

Jimmy, Chad got me a few sets so he may have some sets left. I liked them aside from it being the first time since i've cleaned up my driving that i had a chunked tire. They felt great at ho b max.

But trying to get in contact with Scott is asinine, supposedly he answers emails quicker than he does FB messages.
