Default Where is Jaco are they out of business?

Ok,
I went to pro-lineracing.com (home of jaco tires) to find nothing about jaco on the site? I use Jaco foams for outdoor touring and tried to order some from my local hobby shop to find that the ower says that his distributer has discontinued almost all Jaco products? Are they gone? I need some foams from them, but it seems they are no where to be found? Any Help out there on where they might be?

This is what I heard from a very good source.

Jaco is based out of VA. Pro-Line is in CA. For jaco to ship all thier stuff to ProLine for distrobution was a nightmare I guess so they split. Jaco is coming back but are redoing thier Foam Tires with the foam from overseas I guess, similar to Treadz and so forth. ProLine is going to make thier own Foams now.

For Foam I would go with the TRC Foam Tires.. Then Treadz the Eleggi (sp). Rubber I am not sure. I don't race Rubber in Touring Car. I have heard that Sorex, Take Off, Pits are good tires. Team Orion makes some good Rubber also.

Mike, I think they are near Elkington (sp?) but I could be wrong.

Jaco products are shipping from the plant this week or the first part of next week from what I have been told. They will have new packaging. As far as I know they will still be using the pro-line wheels but that cold change.

Cap Tires: Racetech, BSR for oval cars
Foam Tires: Jaco, BSR, TRC, T/M
Cap Sedan Tires:Pro-Line, BSR that I know for sure.

Hope this helps spread some light on the subject. If I can find an image of the new packaging I will post it.
