I have heard this over and over and it is completely false. No one uses American or European rubber for gas anymore. We have been using Japanese rubber for 17 years for nitro. I have no clue where this information comes from, but it is based on speculation, not fact.

jacos are the cheapest< price that is>and have always been, foam does not come from the same factory. this is how it goes. kawahara has their own factory and they make kyosho/red box tires. ats has their own factory and they make twister tires. jaco makes bsr tires. grp has their own factory and they make devil tires and msr tires. GQ, matrix and enneti have their own factory. anyone can buy from these companys and stamp their name on it but they certainly do not come from the same place

i will NOT repeat where i heard this, just would like others to be informed is all.....dont even ASk who told me, im italian, you have a better chance of seeing ELVIS!!!

I disagree...

Just because they "make/mount" the tires at their factory does not mean that the rubber sheets dont all come from basically same place. Rim difference is likely the handling difference.

Jack does alot of rubber stuff outside the rc side (rc is not his primary buisness) he has a very good understanding.

Get what is sold locally and what most other people use at a given track.

i hear you, without getting into a unarmed battle, ive <just like you said> noticed differences having to do more so with the rims, a couple companys mentioned, just tap a wall SLIGHTLLY and that front wheel will wobble like no-ones buisness...like anything else, test and tune!!and naturally the supply and demand thing

It sounds like your source IS Elvis because someone doesn't know what they are talking about.

Seemed to me to be sourcefull, but hey, if its wrong it's wrong!
