Looking for some FOAM tires for 19T indoor carpet....and between PARMA and JACO, what shores are using between these 2 brands for carpet..?

I used to use Purple front Pliade rear (parma) for carpet, but heard the other 2 shores (Cyan front Magenta rear) is the new setup for carpet...any input?

Then Jaco...never use them, but they are cheaper...what shore to use...? I know it must be some double THIS and double THAT....

I know I will have to try those GQ....but I don't have them in hand yet.

Thanks.......

I ran a FK05 for the first time yesterday and I must say this car is very nice. On carpet it was very easy to drive. I ran the Dumas setup from Vegas and didn't have to make more then one or two changes all day. It was very quick and had massive corner speed.

i have tested between the 2 tire brands both have good points, i found a more consistent tire in the jaco. a good combo for carpet is dbl. pink(rear) dbl. pink orange for the front. cut them down to 58mm and you will like them.

Exactly like what I saw from Xray forum's setup from others who ran 19T or MOD on foam carpet....will give those Jaco a try (beside, they are $3 cheaper per pair...good stuff).

Yep Its ok for both. I use a 115 and 116 for stock and 19T. I ran a 120 with the standard 2.5 mm chassis but the spur was a little too low. With the 3mm chassis it should be just fine.

I have found the opposite with regard to the Jacos. They are much less consistant for me - they seems to wear more unevenly and I've had many more problems with them coming unglued from the rim.

I would pick up a set of both and see which you like better.

The Parmas are also offset which helps on the Xray as the Jaco tires will rub on the shock collars. When using Jacos I have to use an xacto knife, and with the tire spinning on the truer, cut off about 1mm of the inside of the tire.

I am in the process of building my FK05.....I am debating between using the spring steel diffs and the spring steel wheel axels over the stock parts.... I weighted the axels and the spring steel are 3.5gr heavier each one, and the spring steel diffs are also heavier than the duralumium counterparts...... What is the real advantage in using the spring steel parts, they are a lot heavier.... (more rotating mass) I can understand their durability but I doubt the duraluminum parts wear fast....
For stock and 19t I think is better to use the duraluminum parts because of their weight......what do you guys think?

The spring steel ones are worth their weight. Better than beating the duraluminum one in frustration trying to save your bearings.

the diffs are uneccessary but the hubs are worthwhile as mentioned in the previous post the aluminum one's mushroom and are a general nightmare.

I use the spring steel axels in the front only. The alum units and diff for the rear.
