Just a few things here about the JACO's. The blue is listed as a 32, but the rubber is actually a thin walled 40. We use a firmer rubber with a thinner carcass to get the grip of a 32. This is why they last so long. We are selling all the blues with the new insert now. It is a running change so you can't see a difference, but I am pretty sure most tires in circulation have them. The new insert cuts down on wear. Some people claim that they run faster with them, but I can't say for sure.

The SJR on the black wheels are a great choice too. Sorex is the standard by which all other tires are measured.

think you missed what was going on, someone suggested buying speedworld tires from nexus, I was only pointing out the nexus is a retailer, and to call speedworld to find out who was the wholesaler for the SPEED WORLD SOREX, not sure, but i don't think speedworld in the importer for the SPEEDMIND brand of premounted SOREXS

We run the 17.5 class also. With the heat and track temp here there just too soft of a compound. Hit the turns too fast and the car has a tendency of traction rolling. We've been 100+ degree temps here for a couple months now. We race a t night(6:00-9:30) because of the hot days. When it starts to cool down we'll go back to days.
