Default New Parma TC tire compounds and Blackhawk 1/12 tires

Parma is proud to introduce their updated Foam tire line for TC and 1/12. For TC we have kept the same race winning wheel, lowered the retail price to $18.00 and added some new compounds. In 1/12 we went with a black wheel (jaco wheel) added new compounds and lowered the retail price to $18.00 a pair. Here are some 1/12 cars in action from the Snowbirds courtesy of RC Action Pics.

New compounds and lower pricing sounds good. Might have to try some out. I always wanted to know, what is the diffence between the Cyan and Indigo TC tires? They are both listed as the same shore ratings.

the outer ring, sir.

the indigo tires have a harder outer ring that was introduced to help with traction rolling issues. however, as it turned out, this ring digs into the carpet and actually provides a bit more steering and response than the cyan tires. they are a good compromise between cyan and running the rear tires on the front.

Paul,
Any chance we will see a Grey-Low type compound like CRC offers?

The black wheels look awesome! Hopefully they get the street price down to $11.00 like the Jaco prisms at Ampdraw...

Surprising Parma went to a Jaco rim. By any chance is the foam Jaco foam or still Parma foam on the Blackhawks?

It's Jaco rubber on the TC and 1/12 wheels.

We did some testing and found the pinks handle the same as the corals. So to keep things straight between Jaco and Parma compounds we chose to use the Pink name.
