I think using tires for a one run is just wastefull. I had some pretty good results in 12th scale modified using wraps and I get about 8 runs on one set of tires I true them down "very small". For just normal club racing you do not need to go this small which means you will get even more runs out of them. I use denatured alcohal to clean the tires or motor spray and break in your tires in practice and rotate them thoughout qualifying so after you clean them they have time to "dry out". This is with either a Parma or Jaco tire!

the only thing i have seen locally is that on our low traction surface we have locally, i have has the wraps peel off the edge as they get smaller. i have tried gluing the edge, which helps...

i look forward to trying the new 53's, tho... looks to be a neat idea.

ps. Chicky, did you get a pm from me? just curious.... lmk.

No nitro tires. There are way too many people selling them on line for cost and direct to be able to be competitive selling them through distributors like we sell our carpet tires.

Nitro guys are getting their tires at cost and direct from manufacturer? I am jealous.

Sorry I meant cost of what a Hobbyshop would pay for them. Some of the over sea shops are selling them for what a hobbyshop here pays for them.

I recommend Cyan fronts and Magenta in the rear. You can try indigo or magenta in the front but sometimes they can be a little much for stock.

Cyan and Magenta's worked great for stock at the Canadian Challenge. That is what I'm starting with at the Gate too.

got to run the 53's this past weekend. all i can say is awesome. Our track doesn't have the highest grip out there, but we have been running on the same layout for a while so there is a bit of a groove. I have a tendency to leave my tires too big "to get more life out of them" and all that happens is my car doesn't really feel connected to the track and I end up chunking them. My brother got me to cut the tires down to 57.5mm and the car was totally planted. i ran about 6 - 7 packs and they were good all the way through with no problem with edges peeling or anything else, and they're not done yet. I'm going to run at least a couple more packs tonight and see just how many runs I can get before the plastic starts to show through the foam.

These things are awesome Chicky. keep up the great work Parma!
