This is truly good news for everyone! TZ guys are hardcore, they have their own Euro style permanent facility in the backyard, the only one in PNW! They also travel around the world to race! Definitely a great team to be on board running GQ products!

That awesome wear!!! No maybe it's the car setup or maybe it's me but now that they are 55mm I'm going to just hammer on these things and see what happens after Sun. races. Will report my findings soon. The new compounds should be out sometime next week. Please watch the web site for the change. Best regards, Ray
Was this in Stock? Just curious cause I tried the Red\Magenta and Magenta with Stock today and they just seemed to have way too much grip as the day went on, although I did get really good wear. Maybe these would be better with 19 turn?

Try the red/tan and tan tires.They work the best out of all the GQ tires on carpet by far.

I would run Black/Grey and Grey for medium bite for stock foam, Magenta and Tan might be just too soft.

On another note...

Did my Red/Tan, Tan run today. Honestly, it really has a lot of grip, more then Red/Magenta, car is stuck quite a bit more, but I was able to change the setup a bit to TQ, track record and win in 19T today. 6 runs and I wore off .45mm.

I was running Black/Grey and Grey combo. It worked ok but the Red/Tan and Red combo should be the best bet for most stk/19t racing. I ran Red/Magenta and magenta tonite with med/high traction and the car was way glued to the track. Started @ 57mm and had to harden everything just to get the car easy to drive. I think the Red/Mag and Mag combo would work great w/ mod on med/high grip tracks or great for stk/19t while the track is still green. Ray

Really depending on your track, moisture, temp and how many foam cars running, I would strongly suggest getting Magenta and Tan to try it out, it's hard to listen to us about what compound to use when we run on different track, temp, barometer... Just get 2 different sets and do A-B testing with the same setup.

There is one thing for sure, Tan is more consistent then Magenta, Magenta seems to go away with about 40 secs left to go, Tan held up through the entire 5 minute. The beginning of Magenta run has gobs of grip until your compound settles and our mechanical grip takes over. Tan doesn't have that initial extreme grip because of your sauce and stays consistent throughout 5 min.

This is also interesting because when I tested Tan 1/12th tires, they pull some serious fast lap times, but about a minute to go, they faded and started to slow down.

The dual compound tire (Red/Magenta), (Red/Tan) goes on the front. Single compound, Magenta or Tan goes in the back.

Once again, Timezone Racing has them. I raced with them today, they have quite a bit!

Quick little note about the micro foam tires...We ran them at a big race in Southern New Jersey, everyone could had the rears really hooking up, but the fronts had too much grip for the track which was causing traction rolls...I was running them again this past weekend at Horsham RC and found CA'ing the sidewall and the outer 1mm of the tire surface got rid of the traction roll and induced some push in the car

GQ red/tan fronts and tan rears were right on pace with the jaco 2 stage foams last night. The lap times were the same. Maybe the 2 stage work better in extrememly high bite situations but they were just regular ole foams lastnight at the same track that the carpet nats are being held.

litespeed...

How has your 1/12th racing gone with the GQ tires...just wondering if you ran the hardblack/grey fronts and tan rears. Those would seem the most comparable to the Purple and Grey combo's that most run in other brands.

http://www.competition-rc.com/GQ.php

Last I checked GQ is stepping up it's efforts in 2006 and will be sponsoring some of the major races in the U.S. and abroad.

Anthony, actually haven't done any 1/12th racing this season yet. Has been concentrating on sedan foam and trying to stay at the front of the pack this season thus far.

Traditionally, Purple/Grey was what we ran until last winter when dbl pink/pink completely took over. So I'm thinking the Black/Grey fronts might push a little here. If everything go as planned, I'll be running 1/12th soon.... so stay tuned.

On another note, in 19T. Red/Tan and Tan abled me to take TQ, track record and win Saturday the previous week and TQ and win on Tuesday a week ago, then Red/ Magenta and Magenta which I would consider not as fast as Tan took TQ, win and track record by over a lap this past Saturday. Unfortunately, the track record was broken last night by another more experienced driver running Jaco's. There were a few local racers quickly became GQ customers because of its performance!
