I'm glad to see someone gets it!

NO ONE, including our local club wanted to have anything to do with Sorex pre-mounts when it came to controlled tires. All anyone wanted to hear was Jaco Green or Take-Offs CS27.

Now that Jaco is having some issues, and getting hard to come by while they make the transition to the new tires and Take-Offs are gone with wind... suddenly, people who wanted nothing to do with Sorex tires are like...

...hey these things aren't bad, infact they may be the best, especially on asphalt.

Yeah...no kidding, and heres another news flash to those people...the sun is hot!

Just a little info on the new supply of jaco tires...


I talked with a buddy who is at the nats and so far the jaco greens ( newest batch ) have been very good so far for the guys.

He thought there was more air gap and the insert was a little softer and so far nobody has had any issues

yes but then again most guys that are at nats don't crash...ever. So how are they gonna know if the rim can hold up?

Tried some Jaco Blues today. Air temp over 30* C, track temp very hot.
( Mi3...8.5 novak brushless, asphalt )
These tyres were very fast with lots of foward grip for first half of race, but over heated slighty for second half.

I think if these tyres had a bit more air gap and slightly softer insert they would be very fast for the whole race.

Ask you "Buddy", if its the same air gap as the Novak tires? If its more, WOW!

Just a little bit of info for those of you running the Jaco tires on asphalt. I have been testing these tires for Jack for sometime now down here in Florida and as we ALL know there are some issues with the tires that are currently being addressed. In the interim, I have found that these tires seem to like when you run more negative camber. I ran the same set of Jaco blues 8 times running a 10.5 motor for 6 minutes each run and the tire wear was incredibly consistent and almost negligible. I understand that tracks can have different wear on tires but the camber issue seems to be a constant from track to track.

I suspect that the sidewall flex is being countered by the additional camber and is preventing the tire from rolling over to far on the rim when cornering.

I hope this info is of use to you and please post your findings here so we can come up with not only a better solution but a better tire for the future.

Hey Teambutter, Question... Are the Jaco's Blue compound the way to go on asphalt? And Is that compound the same as the RP 30's?

Mike- I think it really depends on the traction. Down here our tracks can get up to 130 degrees so we opted for the Blue which is considered a 28 shore. For medium grip tracks it should be the way to go but a I mentioned in my post, setup is CRUCIAL with this version of the tire. If your car pushes at all it ill tear the tires up. The extra camber will help with this a little but will not cure it if your setup is completely out to lunch.

What are the track temps like up there? If it is cooler you may consider the greens. I still think the blue is overall a better tire though.

The RP-30 is a very similar tire but it is a little harder and has a little less sidewall flex.

Let me know.

Butter

Nice to hear that. It seemed that the tire was good in wear but the tire insert seemed to firm.

.......And Butter, thanks for the input. Outdoor racing is starting real soon for some of us in the Northeast and with your info, looks like the product is getting ready for us.

No problem Alex. Please post your findings as well so we can pool the info together.

If you have any questions please feel free to post.
