Here are the particulars:
JAC2100- Front control tire (Lilac) $16.00pr retail
JAC2110- Rear control tire (Lilac) $20.00pr retail

I would estimate the street price for a set of four tires to run around $28-$32. We are trying to keep the cost as low as possible to help the class grow.

In addition, we will not be including these tires in our regular sponsorship package. In other words, no JACO team drivers will be getting these tires free. This eliminates the possibility of someone showing up with unlimited tires and running a new set every run. We don't want to kill the class before it even gets off the ground.

are these going to be the spec tire for asphalt also, or is there no intention of running this class outdoors?

We are going to try them outdoors. The rears may be a little too firm for some tracks, but the fronts should be fine. I'm not sure how we will handle this with regard to the control tire identification should we need to go to pink or something else on the rear. They may be fine for all we know. Most people thought they would not work on carpet, but they were awesome.

I will be trying them out this Sunday, outdoors, on a medium/high grip, asphalt track. I will report out how they worked.

The placement is almost perfect. I am just looking at it from a detailed picture point of view.

Please do. I will get some anyway for running indoor, but this will be good info for me as I run on asphalt mostly.
