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.

The Dot Evo is in between those 2. It is my goto tire because it works on every track condition - dusty, wet,grooved, and slick.

I'm thinking about trying some of these tires at the HobbyPlex in Omaha on my ebuggy in the coming weeks. Any suggestions on what I should use? Since it's ebuggy the longer mains aren't as much of a concern. I was thinking about ordering a set of Dot Evos in SS in place of Typos and something comparable to Gridiron II's I think. (Wasper or Yzip?) Open to all suggestions!



Here is what the AKA track selector has to offer: (all rec's are SS compound for hard packed clay)

Summer time when track starts to blue groove, low dust - Wishbones

Winter time when track has moisture - Typo

Any time when track is dry but not grooved up - Gridiron II

Longer mains when track has grooved up and wear is higher. Temps below 70*F - Catapult

James does not make any 1/8 indoor tires yet, But the Wasper should be the best.
Fortis/Baster/arrow for 1/10th scale.

I have been using the Wasper in SS @ JCP Raceway in Indianapolis IN. The track is indoor hard pack clay, most guys use a Electron, Dirt Web, Panther Switch 2.0 or similar tire.
I found the Wasper in SS is just as competitive and lasts longer than the other brands. One set of tires lasted me 3 qualifiers and still had plenty of tread for the mains. As the tire wore the better they got.
