The new Jaco Nitro Shoes mounted on OEM Serpent wheels worked very well at the first major race this year, The 30th Annual Ft. Myers Winter Nationals. These tires were used by the Serpent USA Team and several of the drivers from the Serpent European Team for both 200mm Sedan Class and 1/8 Open.
The Jaco Stage 1 Sedan tires on Serpent wheels were used by Paolo Morganti to capture TQ honors and then an amazing 6 lap victory for him in the A Main Final. 5 of the 6 Serpent 710 Drivers in the A Final chose these tires.
The team used Jaco Stage 1 Nitro Shoes on Serpent wheels for the 1/8 Open Class as well. Paolo Morganti missed TQ by 3 tenths and started in 2nd position with his Serpent 960. The A Main Final was very exciting watching Paolo lead for the first 15 minutes until an aluminum pivot ball adjuster backed out taking him out of contention.These tires were being used by such drivers as Michael Salven, Scotty Gray, Barry Baker and of course Paolo Morganti.
All of the drivers said the Jaco Nitro Shoes provided very good forward traction and very good side bite. There was no wheel breakage and the rubber stayed glued to the wheel.
