1:12th Tires - For many years, 1:12th scale has had basically the same 2 compounds of foam rubber in Japan. However, last year, a new foam compound entered the battle arena and we are calling the newest carpet compound Blu and Greene. This is not the older American foam that was labeled Blue and Green, this is a new Japanese compound that we have "borrowed" old nomenclature and call this new product, Blu and Greene. This new foam has high grip, long wear but differs slightly from the Pink/Magenta/Purple and the Black/Grey/Yellow/White family that we have used for years. Last summer at the 2012 World Championships in Holland, CRC drivers Andy Moore, Marc Rheinard, Simo Ahoneimi and Elliot Harper were all in the A-final with CRC cars and tires. In fact, Andy Moore won A2 and had the fastest lap and the fastest 8 minute run at the World Championships. At that event, in our arsenal of tires, we had the new compounds, trued up and ready to run. While many of the other tire companies only learned about these tires at the event, scrambling to mount and true donuts, the CRC team was sitting back with the new Blu's and Greenes all trued up and ready to rumble.
As we approach the 2013 indoor season and after a full season of testing, we are now releasing what we feel are the best 2 additions to the foam tire line. Rear Greene (soft) and Blu (medium).
