News out of the Panther booth is all about their new Gold compound. They call it an intermediate soft that offers excellent dry track grip and better durability. Panther also claims that tires with this new compound won’t balloon (as much) under high speeds like the softer rubbers do. Only a few of their treads are available in the Gold compound right now, more are expected to follow. No stop at the Panther booth would be complete without ogling their Paddles, so check out the pic below of the Losi XXX-SCB wearing paddle shoes, then head on over to the Panther web site for more info.
