Default compounds

Is anybody still using these (BSR touring foams)


I was using jaco dlb purp up front and purp's in the rear. they don't seem to have dbl purp and I was wondering what other people are using as far as compounds for BSR.

We used double pink/orange, double pink and double pink/orange, double pink/purple both with great results.

I love the BSRs, I just can't get them for cheap enough. I have friends who can get Jacos or Parmas for much cheaper, otherwise, I would be running BSRs exclusively. They're nice.

BSR's are great tires in my opinion. They hold up very well versus some of the others I have run. The Double Pink/Orange Front Double Pink Rear is same as a Cyan/Magenta setup. For bigger races, we have been experimenting with the Double Pink/Orange front with Double Pink/Purple rear. What we have found is that when the traction comes up from many cars on the track the Double Pink/Purples in the rear dont bite in as hard as the Double Pink's so your not scrubbing corner speed.

very good tires keep inmind that the rears have a double compound just like the front which really frees up the car when traction come up, tire wear and chucking seem to me the best out there, bad part is there 20 bone for a pair when jaco's are 13 a pair

Exactly what we found at our track.

I can get 2 stage for 14 or 15 bucks a pair from my friend but, don't like them. When you get close to 56mm, the layer tends to peel up and then you're toast.

Like I said earlier, if I could get them cheaper, I would run BSRs exclusively....period.

checkout www.glennshobbycorner.com he stocked them last year wasn't charging ANYWHERE near $20 a pair. MSRP is only $19, so to charge $20 is ludacris. I think Glenn sold them for like $14.

Default Double pink/orange vs double pink/purple

Question about the double pink/orange vs the double pink/purple. Does the purple provide more steering? Or is the purple for better wear.

Thought about trying some BSR tires and wanted to know the difference for the fronts.

Thanks...

Mike Turner
