I'm very happy to see a non-dished wheel that's attractive in rubber. I always mount my own because I hate the dish wheels. Beyond that I think it's an advantage to be able to see if your tires are locking up, slipping etc. With indoor carpet I could see the inside rear wheel locking up with spoked wheels, I could never see that with dished wheels! It helped to tune the car a bit.

New website looks great and of course all those Prism tires look nice too. Anyone see those Prisms for the Traxxas trucks in the new item section...awesome! Jaco has something for everyone.

i ran the new so-called jaco blue tires today with Prizm rim and i was wondering why they looked so much like my muchmore tires, I know that the old jaco blue tires have their logo "Jaco" stamped on the side but not these, and jaco uses the color codes for compound rating,not numbers. But these tires that i got today have the # 32 stamped on the side and seem to look just like the muchmore tires. but i could be wrong. anyways thanks to Jaco for supplying some nice looking rims and tires for our state race.

Marcos- I'll do my best to answer your inquistion.. As usual you are leaving out a small detail. The Much More tires you have also say "Sweep" on them, the tires you ran today obviously do not. There are only a handful of tire "factories" if you will, in the world. Thus the makers have their own way of identifying their compounds. Once again I will remind you as in my previous post in the Florida threads that the tires you ran today, the "so called JACO blues" along with everyone else at the race were PRE-PRODUCTON tires that FSEARA is basically testing. Before Jack or JACO invest all the money in the mold they want to make sure the compound is as close to perfect as possible before they have the JACO logo stamped on the side of the tire.

I can assure you that JACO will have their logo stamped on the side of the tires upon the initial production run. Then you can rest peacefully at night knowing that the tires you run are stamped JACO.

Are there any other questions you might have? I'll do my best to answer them using only as much sarcasm as necessary to match yours.

I do not care what is stamped on the side of the tires.... They rock.. Period ..

They have great traction, and wear awesome.... This tire is leaps and obunds better then the tires it replaces....

BTW, great job on the rims... out of the 100 or so sets that have been run, we have heard nothing but good things....

But then again, you can never make everyone happy.

Jack, from FSEARA, thank you very much for getting the new product to us in such a time constraint.

Thanks MJ for the report and I'm exited that you and all my buddies at the race who ran them today loved them had very good things to say about its wear and traction. Some were a bit concerned about they looking like other tires, and were wondering why they didnt have "Jaco" stamped on them as well, since they were used to seeing Jaco on the old Jaco blues.

Butter: thanks for the clarification

Man, at this point, I don't care if the tires are stamped with an image of Jack and Danny locked in an embrace, I just want something that's always available in every compound and doesn't suck. :-D

I'm glad to hear there's good progress being made. I finally got access to an asphalt track to practice on regularly, so I'm ready to ditch Sorex and try something new.

The new Prism wheels are significantly lighter then the previous wheel. We had 7 DQ's in the first round because people forgot to weigh thier car....

The wear is phenominal.... We are running on a 130 degree track, and I did not see any blistering issues...
