JFT have introduce their new control foam tyre for 1/12th scale pan cars. Spec foam tyre are best known in 1/10th World GT racing where the purple-marked rubber makes for less guess work during scrutineering and they made a first step into 1/12th scale racing courtesy of CRC with JFT being another brand to offer “hand out” control tyres. The pre-mounted and pre-trued tyres come with a blue stripe for easy identification and they are mounted to grey standard off-set 1/12th scale rims suitable for most cars.
Xenon Racing and JFT Tires have announced the signing of top European 1/12th scale drive Vesa Yli. The Finnish driver, who is the manufacturer of the well know V-Dezign chassis, has made the switch to the Japanese made JFT tires for the new season and will also continue to use other Xenon Racing parts on his cars as he has in the past. Vesa gave this statement:
I would like to thank Terutaka Hanaumi from Xenon and JFT Racing for this opportunity to race with their tires made with the highest quality standards! Been supported by Xenon Racing since 2007 already, I am very excited and looking forward to the future races and to help developing even better products! I would also like to thank Markus Mobers for his support for tires over the last 5 years.
