Boo! I didn't get to meet too many people, which was disappointing. I guess that's the penalty for being that guy. I did have a chance to speak with Danny & Jack, and both were very friendly and chatty, and seemed genuinely interested in feedback, even from an amateur.

I never even had to re-glue my tires. After the first day of practice, it was apparent they weren't wearing at all, so I ran race tires the second day, and used them the rest of the week without incident. To me, this is what makes rubber on carpet so nice. You should have seen all the foam tires being used.

Did you realize that your fastest lap in Rubber was the last one you did before trashing your car?

While I was doing my slowest in the lead...

Hope you get that track!

Yeah and imagine had I not had that body tuck I may have possibly caught you. I was getting that track down in the main, but was being slowed by the body. I will work on that next year.

I just picked up a set of Blues and Greens, I run on a track where I have been using Sweep 32's, it's an outdoor asphalt track, temp in the 70's are forecast, what set up changes (if any) would I need, and would the blues or greens be the better ones? Traction compound isn't used at the track.

Those temps are just when I change tires on the car. Usually is by late morning.

.

Not sure about with no compound.

My take on the Jacos is that Blues are equal to a typical 28 compound.

Assuming that the track temp will be below 120 F, I would increase the size of the two air holes in the Blue's wheels and try them first.

I am still waiting for cooler temps to use Greens outdoors.

Hey Jack I used one set for the 4 Qs and main and had the same grip from 1st to last run. also the best gule job to the rim. I neve had to reglue any part of the tire to the rim. Great Tire and Killer looking Rim.
Thanks Jack

Mixed reviews Ive heard on asphalt. Some people love them and others have trouble getting them to hook up. They wear great and look great. At our outdoor sealed asphalt parking lot track sprayed with VHT we haven't been able to find the setup that matches the Sorex tires most use. Within .4 is the closest per lap avg any of us have been able to get with them. It is an ultra-competive track though with many top racers so may be fine for a less competitive track. Also, that is with 10.5 motors. A more mild motor may be closer.

Can't wait to use them on carpet b/c they are definately the best looking tire made.

Yes, the glue jobs on all the new Jaco rubber tire sets has been exceptional.

Definitely ranks as best of any pre-mounts I have ever used. Thanks for that!

So the Blue dots are equal to say the Sorex 28's, what are the Green dots? I took by the code that green is JAC2428 so that'd be on par with a Sorex 28 and the Blue being JAC2432 would be on par with a Sorex 32?

Do I need to up my camber from -1 to say -2 for these tyres?

I would do 2 degrees of camber for a start.
