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.

Since joining James Racing, Jerome Sartel has TQ'd and won and made several A-mains in 1/8 nitro and electric buggy.

James Racing is looking for 1 Pro Factory Driver as good as Jerome Sartel in the USA. If you know anyone looking to make a switch, please have them contact James Racing USA.

To Me they feel like M3/M4 but seem to last way longer. The inserts and wheels are also way lighter so the buggy feels like it accelerates faster and is nimble in the air. The rubber has a very "Wet" feel to them.

Default Tire Choice

Tried a set of James Racing 1/8 flash while away at a race meet. I was quite impressed. Now I am back at home and I run on a very hard packed, very dusty and abrasive track, any thought on a good tire to use. I also run on a harpaced dusty track that can groove up in time any thought on a a tire for that too. I have had good success with sweep exagon on both surfaces. Is there a tire application chart that has the new tires on it?
Cheers

For grooved tracks, the Wasper is the goto tire for qualifying. For long main events, the Super Cross and I-Block are both excellent on abrasive tracks.

I ran some Dot Evo's other day in SS on an outdoor track that is loamy in some places and dusty in the others, and they were working really good on the entire track. Going to get some in Soft and also try out the Flash tires and see how they hook up.
