The JACO tire line is alittle iffy. Depends on which version you got. The tires we ran in Vegas were firmer then the "Greens" I bought at Hobby Town before the race.

Yellows are like a 24, Greens are like a 28, and blues are like a 32. Thats the way Ray explained it to me, but I agree with Sigearheads assessment that the new greens feel alot like RP 30s

Anyone thats interested in trying out the Jaco Green tires let me know. I have 5 new sets, and 5 sets with 3 runs (plenty of rubber left) that I'll sell.

I notice on Jimmy Madisons Carpet setup that he used HPI Pink & Blue springs, can anyone tell me what lbs rating these are?

Why do a lot of drivers use HPI springs?

Thanks
Skiddins

the schuie springs are quite heavy for their rating. or, as some studies have shown, the rest of the industry is light. it doesn't matter who's in error, the fact is that the hpi springs in question are probably 1.5-2# lighter than ours. that, i believe, would be your answer.

That should be the answer, other than there is no point to use other manufacturers stuff

I have a chart that shows the actual ratings for some the manufacturers springs. I think it was PW or Adrian that posted it. I can't get it to attach.

...Hey Schumacher Guys: Speaking of springs, if any of you have the old Schumacher Gray springs, (#U1923) that you'd like to sell, let me know...

Thanks!
