Hey Guys,

Thanks for all the compliments.Everyone so far loves the new tires. They have great steering, wear and traction.

They retail for 19.99. Your local track should have them soon.

Paul

i think parma might have surprised even themselves.

we had some great racing at The Gate this weekend, with the a-mainers split between parma and jaco tires. the interesting part is the massive steering that the parma tires bring. jim herrmann, who finished second behind paul (chicky03), was running parma purples while everyone else ran dpink compounds in both brands. with the slighly softer wheel that paul designed, the contact patch increases. hence, grip increases, and wear decreases. the trick is doing it right so that they don't lack precision. i think they may have done it.

there's still alot of testing to be done, namely at big races. i guess we'll have to stay tuned for two more weeks until the halloween classic has run it's course. pauly may just give parma a victory out of the hole on his home track.

- chris

btw - i ran jacos yesterday!

The tires are only offered in 28mm for right now. If there is enough of a demand we might make other widths. The standard for carpet racing is 28mm so we went with that.

Paul,

Ran a set of cyan magentas at Trackside last night, they were great!!! I usually ran the TRC's and didn't feel that they lost any traction in comparison. In fact they seem more durable and less prone to chunking thank TRC. Great product for Parma I know Scotty is excited about having them in the store!! AWSOME PRICES TOO!!! Better tire at a better price! Looking to get some 1/12 scale's soon!

Paul,

I'd love to give these a shot. But I doubt my LHS will pick them up for a little while. Do you have a list of Online distributors that should be stocking them soon?

I'll put the screws to the director at our track to order at least a few to try.

Underdahill- I know KT hobbies was going to be stocking them but I am not sure they have gotten them yet. I know for sure Larry's in michigan, The Gate in cleveland and S&N Trackside in WI have them in stock but I am not sure if they do mail order. They also will be available on our website through Shop-a-tron once it is updated.

Merciless- I know they had them but they must have sold out. We are shipping an order out to them today so they should have them in a couple days.

Clint-The website is being updated now and should be done tomorrow.

If you guys have any more questions let me know.

Paul
