Has anyone done any back to back testing between the Parma Magentas and Cyans versus the TRC Magentas and Cyans? If so how did the car feel in comparison?

Any body have those new black rim TRC's? I was thinking bout getting some Parma foams in 28mm. What more preferred 26 or 28mm?

28mm seems to be the preferred width when running on carpet. TRC used to be 26mm wide but last year they went to 28mm and increased the retail price by about $2.00.

With the release of the Parma tires which use GRP Foam (same as TRC so I am told) I think TRC has priced themselves out of the market. I can't speak for everyone but I have sold more Jaco's then anything and I expect the Parma's to go like hotcakes which they already are doing.

The Magenta's are here and hopefully the Cyan's show up no later than Wednesday this coming week.

I just picked up a set of BRC foams at my lhs for $16.

The foam actually is flush with the wheel and has a square shoulder unlike TRC's slanted shoulder.

White is the only choice.

Won't know until the track officially opens Friday how they do.

I use Team CRC tires. They have both carpet and nitro TC tires as well as awesome 1/12th tires. Decent prices too.
