The Speed/rex wheel has 1 vent hole...

Im no tire/wheel designer but I cant see that being an issue when the other popular premounts have 1 small hole in the wheel.

Those are our special "high pressure" tires.
Did you run the state race today? How was the glue job? You better say "great" because I glued most of them myself!

We may trim our part numbers down to two- 2428 and 2432. The vast majority of races will be run on either green or blue. The testing we did on orange was not positive. The blues were faster and lasted just as long. Since our goal was to develop a consistent handout tire for carpet and/or asphalt, I think we will concentrate on these two for now.

Hi Jack,

I backordered an orange set along with some blues from Stormer. Should I cancel the oranges per the above? Many thanks.

Seems like a good idea to me. Less product (ie 2 compounds) = quality in my mind. More time to concentrate on the greens & blues

Ran a set of blues today. i really like the rims!! I think my car wasn't setup for such a short sidewall because i'm scuffing up the rim in the corners. I have to adjust for that. I ran at a track temp of about 130 deg or so and they seems pretty good. I had a broken in set of sorex 32's that seemed a bit softer than the jacos, wear was pretty good and they were consistent through out the run. I used buggy grip and no tire warmers.

Yes. Go with the blues only. I think you will like them.

The blues Me and Drew tested at Jonesboro a few weeks ago were awesome. Great wear, consistent from run to run and were fast! The Oranges seemed to wear about the same but lacked a little grip due to being harder. I think the blues should in just about all asphalt applications.

Jack. Marcos would bitch and moan if it had 3 holes. There were a small amount with only one hole and we let ALL racers put a second hole in the rims. We got the first two rounds in and have no complaints about the glue work. (nice job). Will finish up with two more rounds on Sunday (1qualifier and the mains)."

Jack. Please ignore that voice behind the curtain" !!!!!!!

Mushroom Bowl (www.mushroombowl.com) in Kennett Square pa. Sealed Asphalt, kinda bumpy w/ elevation changes. they treat it with soda and nitro cars run out there too.

Air temps got to about 89 degrees, i didn't temp the track directly (dunno how i missed doing that) but the tires were about 105 degrees coming off the track.

Again i'm not sure my car is setup for tires w/ such low sidewalls, i did a quick check and the new jaco's are lower than the sorex 32's and rp30's that i have in my box.

I'm going to be running them again (i've cleaned them and stored them clean in a ziplock) tmrw at the blue diamond down in new castle delaware. It is a slightly rougher surface and it's a big sweeping track that is pretty flat.

I like the jaco foam tires but I have to say tried the new blues and they just don't work I don't know how you guys get it to work but all the racers at my local track tried it and switch to the another brand I like the rims but that is all I can say I like about the tires the rest of the tires are still on the shelf no one can get it to work.

Do you race at Jackson? So far, that is the one track where I have heard that the blues do not work. I don't know why. We have either run or tested the blues on 9 different tracks and Jackson is the only one I have heard had issues. I wish I knew why. Any ideas?
