Default CRC Race Cuts TC Tires

"Calandra Racing Concepts have released a high performance, low cost, touring car foam tire for the racing market called Race Cuts, which are a 27 mm wide touring car tire mouted on CRC’s 51 mm dished wheel. This new tire offers a performance based larger diameter wheel (51 mm instead of 49 or 50) with a 27 mm width so its suitable for all the current touring cars and while the rules now allow the wheel to be 53 mm, a rim this large forces a very small side wall making the tire a one or 2 run tire at best. The new TC Race Cuts come trued to 58 mm in diameter and are available in 2 compounds, magenta and a split double purple/magenta."

looks cool. Are they going to eventually offer more compounds? Its cool to see tires coming trued down. Cutting tires sucks.

After seeing a set of the Jaco Prisms, I don't think I'll ever buy tires again that aren't pre-trued. I'm glad everybody is jumping on that bandwagon. What kind of price can we expect from the CRC's?

Pre trued tires are sweet . CRC says the full retail price will be 14.99, so thats like 5 bucks cheaper than a lot of other tires on the full retail part, so they might be even cheaper when they hit hobby shop shelfs.

Who's bandwagon? I believe CRC was the first to offer this with their 1/12th "Pro Cut" tires.

I'm not sure who started it, honestly. I'm glad it's becoming the norm, though. Cutting foams is a messy hassle.

Rim looks very similar to the old-style Parma rim.

I have been wanting to try foams but the cost of a truer is way too much and too much trouble...this trend may actually increase the popularity of foams.
