Hello Kail,

Yes the Jaco prism's Lilac fronts and Yellow rears are the way to go

Hope this helps
Mike

I finally got to hold one of these cars today. One of my local racers bought one before me the bugger! Anyway he raced his today. Beautiful car! I was very impressed by the fit and finish and the overall layout up close. I was quite surprised at how soft the "spring rate" feels on the stock flex links. I expected them to feel a bit stiffer. I might even consider using a thicker link for our track. Great car though. Looking foward to when I can afford one!

The nice part is, you have 3 different spring rate settings with each thickness plate. Without the set screw is the softest setting. Then when you instwall the set scre without touching the chassis it becomes a little stiffer, then touching the chassis is the stiffest. We also offer different thickness plates. This is a very tunable car.

It is something you need to try. The greys and purples are a little harder setup so if there is good bite they may free the car up a bit and bump up your laptimes. I have had good luck with the yellows and lilacs but i will always try different tires to see what is the ticket for the track that day. It never hurts to try different tires. I just try to get them figured out in practice.

That might be part of the problem. One thing we found in the UK when we went to odourless-only additives, is that Jack and Paragon do not mix. The track just goes all slippery and horrible. If you have people mixing it at your track, that will be part of your handling woes. HTH

Most of the people that day were using paragon. The bunch of people using Jack will be in the next race. Oh no... So what are your recommendations.

Jason, I sent a file down today to Keira. It's a rough draft and needs to be tweaked a little...

Let me know what you think...
