Default JConcepts "OR" Panthers

Which is better...AND on what surfaces JCon.'s come with better foams I think

JConcepts Barcodes (Gold Compound) OR Panther Switch's for Clay.

Or whatever your experience is with either brand and their different patterns....

Well, what type of surface are you planning to run on? What type of vehicle? Truck? 2wd, 4wd? both companies produce quality products. If you have a local track, ask the racers what they're running for tires.

I love panthers, it does depend on what surface because Panther is really good for Blue Groove tracks but they do have some tires for wet tracks also.

It depends on the type of vehicle your running, the track surface, motor, drivers preference, ect.....

That said, Panthers

There is no answer toi this! Each company makes good products. You need to match the tire to the track you will be racing on. Brand name is irrelevant. If it works, it works, no matter the brand.

Either buy some of both and try them for yourself, or ask the fast guys at the track what they are using and go from there.

D16, It's funny because RB came and said Losi when it was about JCon. and Panders.
