I would totally just order them from you (I need some other stuff anyways)! But for some reason priority always seems to take 3 days from Jersey. No fault of yours!

We would be pretty small fries for an account, like a dozen sets for a season if we were lucky.

I would also consider Solaris Med but they are out of stock at the two online shops that carry them.

Thanks for header card info though!

Please let their be a constant supply of Jacos. A few tracks up here in Canada would really like to use them as a spec tire, but nobody has any faith in the supply. Now i hear its in BSR's hands i just hope they get them right and by the container load.

I don't think supply will be as problematic... But everyone can have their issues. If everyone switches back to them in one month.. Then that would be a problem.

Remember when no one ever spoke about running sweep, Solaris, gravity, team powers, etc? Up to 2008/9 it was all Jaco..

In 2008/9 I still had a stash of TakeOff CS27's.

08/09, those were good times. We wouldn't of had to try all those other options if the jaco supply was good.

I didn't start racing until 2010, but I do have a set or two of unused CS27s

Daniel, your location still says mississauga. Need to change that to middle of nowhere
Awesomatix usa still shows as having 6 sets of jacos in stock. I'm surprised you haven't cleaned them out yet.

I don't want to pay 40 for shipping plus possible duty.

I have about a million barely used sets in my pit box. We only race asphalt here and the last 5 years or so of running the IIC, I've ended up with a ton of sandwich baggies with sets of Blues.

How is the Jaco supply doing? These are being considered as our clubs spec tires.

Plentiful .. 5280 uses it as a spec tire and we have no problem getting them.

Can anybody confirm if tires from the 2014 Birds batch went to distributors? I'd hate to order tires and end up with more of those bricks.

I believe so

You want tires bagged with a blue header card...

Yes we order direct from BSR. Your hobby shop or Club should be able to do the same.

They will not sell directly to the end user.

We are having excellent results and Supply on the Javo Blues at MMR in Minneapolis.

So much better then jaco supply has been for 6 years and probably the most consistent tire we have had for years now.
