how are they for traction. they say the Jaco wraps have the most grip(traction).
are they offset like the parma's? so i don't have to cut the rim to fit the T2 007.
The pre-trued tires you're thinking of are probably the John's BSR tires.

Which rims are you having to cut to fit the 007? I've been running the Jaco tires without cutting them on my 007. You just have to mount the shock on the suspension arm to the inner position.

Edit: I am running a small shim on the front hubs.

If you've got the bucks and the skill to use the wraps I'm sure they're great.

how about just running a small shim to clear the shock mount?

How do the GQ tires take to traction compound? Particularly Jack the Gripper. I was reading something on the CRC web site about not using sauce or using it sparingly.

The GQ's work great with Jack, 10 minutes before and wipe off. Sometimes a little slick on the first few corners if you don't get them wiped good but works great. Also worked awesome with Paragon last month on brand new carpet.

As usual they soak it up pretty good on the first application after being trued.

Are you using C1 or C2 compound?

We don't see much difference between the grays and the magentas C1 C2 compounds. I would say we typically run Magenta... but as we speak are trying to do a little more testing... and we have not seen any difference in the way they accept traction compound….
