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.
Sweeeeeeet! Can I preorder? :-)

Thumbs up

Thanks for the response guys! I can't wait to try the new batch
of Jaco Rubberz tire set in blue and orange. We've been using
the RP's, Take Off's, Team Sorex and Team Much More in 30, 32, and
36 shores for the last couple of years. My LHS just announced that
he will carry exclusively the Jaco Rubberz for 1/10 scale Touring cars.
He's been selling the Jaco foams for 1/12 scales and has been very
happy with the quality. Our local outdoor asphalt racing starts next
month, hopefully we'll have the Jaco Rubberz set in time.

Wallstreet- I stand corrected ...by Jack himself none the less..LOL!! I knew it was up or down from the 27's we used to run here in Florida. In all honesty the tire really has gotten a bad wrap but with all the improvements Jack has laid out for everyone to see, this updated version will be DIALED.

Adamge- With little camber or less than 1.5 static camber it seemed to me the tire was rolling over on itself as a result of the larger side walls. This would lead to the outside of the tire getting "chewed" up rather quickly. The additional camber compensates for the sidewall flex and seems to be preventing the tire from rolling over too much and damaging the tire. This issue had been addressed by Jaco as you read in Jacks post so this is a good step for the interim until the "new" Rubberz are available.

Hope that was clear enough...I rambled a bit. If you have anymore questions fire away.

Snowy.
Ken Pepe had a set of tires he bought at home, and several sets from the nats. Both sets fresh out of the package, the nats tires seemed to have more airgap, and the insert felt a bit softer. This was just by feel. I did not hear of any real problems, however, besides broken rims. Somebody always breaks rims, no matter what tire though.

Question for "Jack Rimer "

Why not just offer your tires un-mounted? I would love to use them except the only rim for me is the HPI stock car rim. It just seems the hole problem of this rim sucks, this rim rocks, this style is puke, "lucky its a dish to hold the puke" could all be fixed if you would just offer them UN-MOUNTED.

What say you?

Most people want pre-mounted tires for the ease of not having to glue tires every couple weeks. I don't know anyone in my area that still glues or wants to glue their own TC tires. I am looking forward to trying some JACO prism rubber tires. Not only do they look decent compared to other pre-mounts, but they also appear to be an overall good-quality tire.

The complaints by everyone have been taken care of as Jack has said numerous times, so why keep brining up the issue? Let it go.

Thats surprising. Ive always found the HPI rims to crack easily too. The best rims seem to be the speedmind rims on the sorex tires. They dont seem to lose their shape as easily as the take-off rims (and are slightly thinner) and dont seem to break.

Because we haven't seen a demand for it. This is the first request for separate tires I have seen. The industry trend seems to be toward premounts in an attempt to simplify racing and eliminate the problems associated with different inserts, etc.
