I received 2 orders of the new jaco blues. I only placed 2 orders, I am an average club racer. The 2nd order I placed was with towerhobbies, I received them around 3 weeks ago from them.

I kid, I kid... I understand wanting to get some for Vegas, I'm in the same boat. If only the carpet track wasn't 100 miles each way. :-)

Looks like ampdraw only has 2 sets. Get 'em while you can. They've got Sorex 28's, too... too bad there's no greens around. :-(

sounds like GP/Tower is fulfilling internet orders before dealer orders

Stormer came through and made it right... They admitted error in filling real time orders before backorders, and shipped my backorder out today. I should have the tires on Wed. Long live customer service.

Jaco Blue testing report from Fantasy World in the Seattle area:

FW is a recently sealed large parkinglot track...sprayed with soda...med/high grip...weather 80 deg. and sunny...

Several of us tested the Jacos in 13.5...

Once again they were as good as any other tire we run at FW...

We ended up using Tire Tweak with no warmers for 20 minutes and they were dialed from the start...

Tire wear was very good as usual at FW....no increase in wear compaired to other tires...
