Default Help jaco 2 stage 1/12 tires.

I am a litte confused some online shop list them different ways

What compound is a yellow rear tire? (is it a double pink 2stage?)

What compund is a black front tire? (is is purple 2stage)?

Can some one supply the jaco part numbers for all the 1/12 wraps available.

Thanks

Sad part was I asked some about this at the track and I didnt write it down and now I seem to have forgotten what is what...doh!

Wrap's are normally known as "2 Stage".

I think the 2 stage black fronts and the 2 stage yellow rears are different tires , they are the newest of the 2 stage tires from Jaco. I believe there is puple, double pink, and black in the front, and yellow and double pink in the rear in the 2 stage tires. i am not sure how they rate to each other, I thought the black fronts were the hardest, for high bite tracks, followed by puple, then double pink. Maybe an email to Jaco would clear this up or Jack might see this and set us straight, I am wondering myself... I am also wondering where you would want to use the 2 stage tires, versus when you want regular tires....

Good job. You got it right. With the new carpet, we don't see a lot of black fronts being used. The double pink and purple fronts work well for mod and stock respectively. All our drivers have their own preferences, so I can't recommend any one "best" combination.
I believe that all of our drivers use 2-stage exclusively in 1/12 and sedan at this time.

Hey there are a bit confusing. I know I seen them listed on STormers site. Under the proper compound configuration. I really like these new tires.

Where do the 2 stage yellow rears fit in the Jaco tree, where would you want to use those? Thanks!

4325-purple front
4326-double pink front
4329-black front
4342-double pink rear
4347-yellow rear
Yellow is in the same family as white and gray. It is between these in hardness. It's a good stock tire because it doesn't "gum up" as bad as the double pinks. However, with the new carpet, double pink fronts and rears seem to be a good place to start.

Yellow wraps are White foam over the hard foam core. These are popular with stock 1/12th drivers on really high grip tracks to free up the rear end of the car. This reduction in grip makes the car more free in the corners and puts less load on the motor than pink or double pink tires. Yellow wraps (like White or Gray foams) wear pretty fast so you often need to have twice as many rear tires as front tires if you want to keep running close to a certain diameter.

On the latest generation CRC Ozite I like double pinks wraps front and rear. This new carpet has less grip than before and lets you use a more grippy tire with no problems.
