Hey Guy's I have a question what tire tractions work the best with these Jaco Blue and greens? This rubber seems alittle different, I just want to use the right tire traction Im running on a low to Med bite asphalt track.

I did a little testing with the new prism wheel today and I can tell you guys it was awesome. They look so cool on the car and I feel that the new wheel helped the performance as well. Lap times were identical to rp's and sorex's on carpet.

When you guys see these you will be lined up around the block to get them.

We did get some samples in of our new wheel last week. We tested on a couple carpet tracks over the weekend. The results were very positive. We feel the changes we made to the wheel have helped. In addition, the tires are about 2.3 grams per tire lighter than the previous wheel/tire combo.

We hope to get some testing done this week on asphalt. No word yet on a release date, but it will be as soon as we feel comfortable with all our testing.

BTW, thanks for giving them a try Josh H.

They look just like the foam rim just not as "white" from the ones that were tested at the Gate this weekend. The rim is awesome the tire worked good but may still be a touch too soft IMO from what I saw of the tire being used there. But still an improvement and going in the right direction so far....keep it up Jaco this rim is too sweet to fail.

Trying to buy rubber tires these days is like an easter egg hunt. Let Jaco rule the US market with a quality tire, at least we know they'll pay attention to distribution needs here.

Hell, if the tyres are any good, someone tell me if a US store will ship overseas, and I'll buy some!

The only problem with Josh testing them is that 99.9% of the time he doesn't hit the boards.

I can hit the boards with the best of em and I'm running asphalt this weekend. I think that makes me a prime suspect for durability testing.
