I heard Parma is now offering outer trophy protector cases? Is this true?

What's difference between the Parma Cyan and Indigo tires since they both have the same dual shore rating? I'm assuming one has a higher rubber content in the foam on the inside portion of the tire.

Not sure of the shore ratings, but the Indigo is in between the Magenta and Cyan...its more aggressive than what I cyan gives you, but helps take off the edge that a magenta can give you up front.

I know a few drivers ran indigo's in Vegas.....

Indigos will give more steering and turn in compared to a cyan. They tend to wear less too. I personally think they give more turn in than a magenta, but not as much overall steering throughout the corner. They have more intial sidebite because of the stiffer sidewall.

Magenta is a touch smoother on entry when you only sauce like 1/4-1/2 the tire, but it gives more steering everywhere else through the corner. I pretty much use magenta all around all the time, but just adjust the car around it, or glue the sidewalls to tame them down a touch.

I need to send out a big THANKS to Chicky and Parma for the great tires and bodies! I had a great weekend of qualifying... too bad the mains didn't go as well...

Awesome job with the TQ and Win in 19t 12th.
