The Jacos are now on the Prism wheel, we don't get the Serpent tires here in the states. Or not that I am aware of anyhow.

Any feedback from the IIC handout tires? I am at the race, but I can't talk to everyone. So far, the feedback seems positive, but I just want to be sure in case we need to make changes.

They seem fine to me so far. I used one set for practice and one set for quals and mains. I bought four sets, two for practice and two for mains. I like the wheels and the tires seem to be wearing really well on carpet. I am more curious to use them once I get back home on asphalt.

Best tire ever. Sounds like most guys have been running one set since the second day of practice.

Someone must have kidnapped the real Syndrome and replaced him with a kinder, gentler version.

One set each is all I needed for qualifying and racing in Amateur 17.5 and Rubber 13.5 classes at IIC. Could have used the same sets for the two days of practice too. And I will continue to use them at NorCal Hobbies until they finally wear out.

Certainly a great tire for carpet. Very consistent for the high traction conditions we had at the IIC.

The blues work good on our very smooth high traction indoor asphalt. Wear is higher than 30's but still have good traction. They seem to need a lot of camber aswell.

I read back a ways and it sounds like people are having great results with them on asphalt as well. Speedtech has them in stock and I'll be racing there next Sunday so methinks I'll try some out. I've about used up my Sorex supply, and I wasn't all that impressed with them anyway.

I am OK with the Jaco Blues for our weeknight racing at NorCal Hobbies; but, absolutely had to use RP-36s during the days when track temps exceeded 110-115 degrees.
