Hi Jack, what is the durometer reading of Jaco Blue and Green compounds. Are these front or rear tires, or both?

Also how does the "standard compound" compare with the low wear compounds in terms of rubber/foam content.

Default Prism tires

Jack will there be plenty of Sedan and 1/12 Prism foams at IIC?

Demand was much larger than supply after release, that I could get a hold of anyway.

Hey Corey,

I dont think the bite will be super high in Vegas so just the standard Dbl pinks all around or maybe magenta's for stock. I know that some of the mod guys are thinking pinks all around if the bite is like last year.

Ampdraw will have LOTS of tires at the IIC. The price will be SWEET too. You might want to stock up. LOL.
We are taking Magentas and Double Pinks mostly for the team in sedan. We will have a few pinks and lilacs too just in case we need them. The shop will have everything too.
We have a full array of 1/12 tires and wheels at the hobby shop to suit your driving style.

I will be running stock. So Magentas? Looks like the only one that is out of stock at the distributor is magenta.

They should arrive at distributors early next week. They were the last ones we made, as the rubber just arrived.

So can you give some guidelines, for instance

for stock and 19T

(1) on a typical club track, 36 x 60, mix of tight and flowing sections, Jack the Gripper only, grip is low most of the time, maybe low to medium at the trophy races
(2) a track like The Gate, or Cleveland Nationals, using Paragon or open compound choice, grip usually med to high even very high

I'm just trying to figure out which tires to start with that get me in the ballpark most of the time. Also if I am going to ask my LHS to order these, I want something that is likely to work for most of our locals too.

Jack, will the Nitro Shoes be going to these rims? The current rims are ok, but the Prism rims are different than anything out there.
