.......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.

Rose City Scale Racing in Portland Oregon will be hitting the asphalt soon for its summer season.

Where can we find Jaco Rubber tyres in this area please ?

I cut open a nats tire and a novak tire and everything was the same. The tires ran pretty good at the nats which leads me to think that the super high bite at novak was the reason for all the tire problems.

Still not quite the best carpet tire I have run.........but I was told things are being worked on and improvments will be made. So lets keep our fingers crossed that we will soon have "the tire" to run on carpet

Thumbs up

Jack,
Unrelated to the tire/wheel issues that's been the hot topic here,
Do you have any plans on your rubber pre-mounted tire set
with different design wheels like these sample pictures?
Dish wheels had been a little boring over the years.
Thanks!

I believe he said they were going to mount the new ones on the prism rims, so yes they plan to. Unless they have changed their minds.

Last conversation we had, thats what was planned. However nothing is set in stone. If JACO feels that the prism design or any other design they come up with compromises the integrity of the wheel or would make the wheel less than ideal, changes would be made.

As it stands, nothing has been set in stone. Jaco is working to find the right combination for the next version of the Rubberz series.

Butter, what wear were you seeing with not enough camber?

We hope to have Prism rubber sedan wheels in here to test in 2-3 weeks. The molds are almost complete. Some of the improvements to the wheel:
1) Stronger plastic- these won't break. We will be using the same plastic we use on all our Prism wheels. Also, they look great.
2) Slightly smaller inner diameter for more air gap. If you are complaining about too much airgap, chances are you have one of our first batch of thin wall tires. The airgap on those was HUGE. We feel that we need to increase it slightly on the current wheels to help the tire run cooler.
3) We are also tapering the inner ribs to better conform to the insert. This is a trick Hara told us to do for better, more consistent performance.
4) The new wheel will have more flex. Our current wheel is too stiff and works the tires too hard. We feel a wheel must have a certain degree of flex in order to add some mechanical grip.

The key words were "he thought"

It was what rob king had told me after talking with josh during the nats.. I knew they had sent out a newer batch and asked rob if josh liked them better.



Butter i had thought i read somewhere that jack posted the last 2 numbers of the product code for the tires was the compound rating

jaco yellow is jac2424
jaco green is jac2428
jaco blue is jac2432
jaco orange is jac2436

i might be wrong on this but i could have sworn that is what was posted a while back when the tires first hit the market

I am only asking cause you said the blue was a 28 rated compound

Hi guys

Has anyone tried JACO Orange 36 tires on hot asphalt track?

Currently in our local climate, generally guys are running Sorex 40R in the day and 36R in the evening.

Appreciated
