does anyone one know if you have to make any setup changes from your previous setup with the dish wheel to the bigger rim to compensate for the larger dia. or is it not necessary ? please explain

Rosko,

If anything these rims/tires will plant the car a little more. You shouldn't have to make any adjustments to go faster.

I would have to agree with Robbie, their may be a slight tweak here or their that the tire may allow you to do differently but for the most part i think the set-ups will be very similar. paul

I think we will know more after this weekend. We have some of these going out to dealers, distributors and our drivers. By Sunday night I should have gotten a lot more feedback. So far, the general attitude is that they drive easier, but run faster laps. Perhaps it is because they are easier to drive that translates into faster times???? Also, they are very light (lighter than even the 26mm 2-stage tires) so they accelerate quickly. I think having a few more compounds to choose from also helps to dial in the car.

Jack - Will you be selling a Double Pink Prism Rear tire?

I am sure you guys are working on a website update but in the mean time can you post part numbers for the front and rear compounds on Prism rims so we can tell our local hobby shops what to order?

I think we will be doing a double pink rear. We make it, we just have not assigned a part number for it.

Cool, I really like running double pink front and rear on asphalt.

The pink, purple, etc tires ARE actually gas rubber. We use these for rears only. The front rubber for gas is completely different and doesn't work well on carpet.
The white, gray, yellow family relies more on traction compound for bite than the the pink, purple family. Those tires heat up and create bite.
Jack, am I correct in thinking that the two families break down something like this:
Heat induced grip:
pink, magenta, purple, lilac, cyan, double pink

compound induced grip:
gray, yellow, black, white

thanks.

Yes. That may be oversimplifying it, but you could say that. Stock cars tend to need to be freer so a gray or yellow rear is a little faster than a pink or double pink in many situations. Mod cars crave grip so pink works well there. Ultimately, it depends on the track.

The new Prism's use a larger wheel and are not 2 stage tires. Its not needed. I got to compare the Prism's to the old 2 stage stuff a few weeks ago....Prism's were better in every aspect for me..
