Default JACO 26mm Foams

Can anyone tell me what difference the 26mm foams do to your car setup compared to the regular 28mm tires?

I heard that they are great where there is a lot of traction, I know that they are carpet but I mean a lot of traction to where there is a groove in the track.

Let me know because I want to buy them but I am wondering if they will work at our club races where there is a groove but nothing like the groove you get at a major race (IIC etc)

The newer 26mm tire just "frees" the car up a bit in high bite... Leave the car the same and run them, even at a club race where traction isnt as high you will still be faster... Also good for x-ray guys as you can mount the lower shock mounts out on the arm without them hitting the wheels and for corally guys the fronts dont hit the spring perch..
