James Racing Tire Prep/Gluing Tips

1. Use non-chlorinated brake cleaner or Alcohol to clean bead of tire.
2. Dremel wheel bead. This gives it a good bonding surface. Clean after dremel with above cleaners mentioned above.
3. Use loctite professional glue.
4. Enjoy!

What James Racing Tires are compared to in other brands:

PL suppressor - Y-Zip
PL lockdown - Revenger
PL fugetive - Defenders
PL blockade - Y-Zip or Revenger
PL switchblade - Wasper

Dot Evo works on wet or dusty tracks and every track condition.
Wasper is like a Hole Shot/Buck Shot.
I-Blocks are amazing on dusty blue grooves.
X-Cross is like a Bow Tie.

The rubber wears like iron and the SS compound is close to a M3 PL and if sauced with PB Blaster, feels like a M4. The 5 rib inserts are like Dirt Techs so they don't break down fast like PL foams do.

I live in Texas and currently in the 70ís-80ís. Lately, occasional 50ís-60ís. And of course the 90ís in the summer and then some.
Thanks.

There is no chart, but traction level is more important than temps. Use SS for low grip, Soft for high grip, and Medium for extreme/abrasive grip levels.

Medium (m2) - firm compound, same as before

The new soft is now right in between Super soft and medium.
So use SS for low grip, soft for medium grip, and medium for high grip/abrasive tracks.
yeah the stuff I got that is SS didn't feel like a Jconcepts green, more like a proline x4. So if the enw stuff feels like a Jconcepts Green thats good.

The Track is full covert with Hockey/Tennis Carpet.
So I'm not sure what tire is the best. I think the Dot Evo or X-Cross can work.
I hope you can help me...
had the same problem with my buggy, fixed it by replacing the tires with the ones that are mentioned by the OP

Got my two full sets of Waspers for RC Pro today and they feel good! I got soft and medium. Can't tell that big of a difference but the wheels, rubber, and foams feel good. Hope they work well at the track this week.
