Well, no matter what you showed you had the lap times to race head to head with EA. That means when you get used to racing close with guys as good as EA you will be able to make A-mains at the SnowBirds, Cleveland and IIC

I'm sure they are an excellent performing rim...I just don't like the asthetics of them. To me they look more like those huge chrome rims and rubber band tires on pimped out SUVs. I just prefer somthing that looks more like what you'd see on a race car.

the design behind the new jaco wheel is really cool.they give you more forward bite than any wheel on the market.the webbing and main support of the wheel is closer to the center of the wheel allowing the inside and outside of the wheel flex evenly and giving you more forward drive on power.i have tried them all and i prefer these over all of the wheels out there.

I'm sure they are a fine performing rim...I just can not get past the asthetics.

Looking for a nice clear pic of the car without motor/receiver/ESC. The 2 below are nice but I'm looking for a straight-on pic at a 30 degree angle....
I don't want to photoshop one of the pics below and I need to find my scandisk for my camera or else I would have taken a pic myself...

THX in advance.. Oh it's for a setup type system I'm working on..... And yes, BMI is aware of this project....
