Thanks to those for the suggestions.
What you're feeling, is the way a sorex tire SHOULD be. The speedmind premounts had a horrible insert in them that generally makes your car push a ton. When you get your setup worked around right, the speedmind tires can be very fast. But if you jumping from that setup with those tires and just slapping SJR's on, you will have some problems most likely. Maybe make a few setup changes to smooth the car out, it'll probably be better in the long run

I have been e-mail about the black prism wheels, I will have another 100 sets in about 10 days. Jac is receiving the inserts on Monday and I am sure he will send them out by thursday.

JACO works there butts off for us when were in a crunch, my hats off to those guys at the JACO plant.

Maybe your site needs to attend some motivational self help classes so it's not so insecure

So I should seriously consider changing my camber to 1.5 - 2 with the Sorex 26? Just want to make sure that tires wear evenly.

Sorry BOR but my other post didn't answer his question.


You should't have to run alot of camber with the SJR's as the sidewall on the Sorex's tires is taller then the Jaco green's/blue's. At the Reedy we were running 2.5d to 3d of camber with the Jaco Blues and with Sorex we normaly run 1.5d to 2. You can run less on the Sorex but thats what I have found to work for me.

94deg thanks for the pics, I still have trouble posting pictures, it’s called failure on the computer. The new wheel was on redrc last week along with our tire cans and tire case that holds 12 sets of 24mm tires. Those have been out since 2000 and are a really good seller. I will try putting a pick up in the next few minutes.

Thanks for all your guys help.
Billy

Here are the part # TSTC12 for complete set up for the case and the 12 tire cans that come together and part # TSTC for a single tire can. They will hold any 24mm rubber tire set.
