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.

You can order from Dialed-RC Hobbies. There are no truggy tires yet.

Dot Evo and Flash should be the best on loamy tracks.

Are the Dot Evos best for hard packed, super dusty tracks? When are you getting a shipment with the rest of your compounds?

Hopefully the first week of January.

The dot Evo works great on wet loamy and dry dusty tracks.

For the tracks I race on, most of us run blockades/impacts or gridirons/holeshots, which james tires would match up best with these.

The closest is:
Flash - Impact
Wasper - Holeshot

If you want something that lasts even longer for more budget minded consumers, the Super Cross, I-Block, and Y-Zip also work good with larger pins then the Flash/blockade/impact. For super dusty or loose tracks, the Dot Evo has way more traction then Wasper/Holeshots/Gridirons.

It is in between the Wasper and Flash like a Sniper.

We had nothing but great performance out of all the tires from dialed hobbies. Cant wait to try the james line of tires as well. Ordering dot evos and the supercross buggy tires as well as some more vp pro striker 2.0s. (great tire) for motorama this month.

I can say that the James tires I have tried to balance really didnt need it. Very surprised about that. As for wear, ive only used them indoors so far but there isnt anything to speek of for wear.
