Does anyone know of a company that use the SAME type of rubber for front & rear? I know Jaco & twister both use a different type of rubber for front. I would like to make my own decisions on how to set-up my car. They seem to think I shouldn't have any steering. I would rather like to have some .

ATS makes 26mm tires which are the same compound with the rears. I use this combination several times, fronts which are made from rears compound wears a little more, but give higher traction. I normally use same shore tires for front and rear, but with this combination I'm planning to use one step harder for fronts.

I have tried running harder shore rears v.s. front. Works, but it is not quite what I am looking for. Guess I will have to find someone that supplies donuts & mount my own fronts with rear donuts.

Salvatori:

Regarding the Kawahara foams... I looked the japanese page and found two types of 35's in 1/8 foams.. do you know what's the difference between these two part no.?

ZM-1035
ZM-1035S

Are the one ended in S Multiringed? or what makes them different?

Probably like the jacos , dual layer. Two different profiles , one for touching the track , the other for providing a second profile to help adjust tuning.

Its kinda like a progressive spring. You get two profiles in one. The question still remains , is this double rate better than a single. Some say yes and some say no. You have more to worry about when building a double layer profile if your jaco / kawa. With a single you at least know its hit or miss. With a progressive you can get mixed results.

But results are results , try a pair , see if you beat your lap record or improve consistency or some sort of benefit that outweighs using the standard tire.
