But it seems that the Jaco yellow rears are really hard to find. I've been using grey-low rears and black fronts with some success, but I'm wondering if there might be a better combo. Anyone have any ideas?
I tend to like the CRC tires better. I like the wheels a ton better. For compounds, it just depends. Yellow rears tend to rotate a little harder than Grey-Lows. The sidewall folds over a bit on the yellows and gives a little less sidebite, so it helps the car float through the middle of the corner better. It all depends on how you drive and how the track is though. I bounce back and forth pretty frequently . My favorite tire combo for my home track is actually black or grey front (depending on traction levels) and yellow rear.

Hope that helps!

Art what speedo are you using it makes a pretty big difference to your rollout, there is no definate pinion/spur with foam tires.

I have a few questions regarding 12th. scale tires....

1. Where is everyone buying them, and what brands seem to be best for Asphalt?
2. Are most people setting up with the larger diameter rims now? I know that the older wheels have a smaller rim on them.
3. Is the start up standard for rear tire diameter 1.9?

Basically I am looking for the latest tire info. I just purchased a Gen XL and all of my remaining tires are the full rubber CRC wheels/tires.

Any help would be appreciated.

Default boosters

I run the BD v2 dynamic booster is the way to go.

As regards rollout your miles out ,with the gearing you indicated you are running at 80.92mm
At the IIC I ran at rollout of approx 95mm .But have ran as high as 104mm.

Roll Out = (tire diameter) x 3.14 x pinion / spur


Pinion = RO x spur / (tire diameter) / 3.14
