Look for the whole line of Jaco product to be back up and in stock with in the month.

Also like Peter said the 1/12 fronts have been fixed. No more wobble in the new batch's of wheels.

Thanks Drew
Thanks for the info.
That's the answer I was looking for.

They are mounted on white wheels, and have no stripe in the tire to denote they are a spec foam.

What gives ?
With no colored stripe to signify the spec tire, these will be quite easy to mount whatever rubber you wish. No stripe should mean not legal.

The rim is what is used to spec the tire. At big races you would have to by your tires from the track owner. We used to do it that way and there was no problems. I think most racers prefer no stripe.

Thanks Drew

No because the finish on the original wheel is a type of paint that comes off very easy with any solvent. So if you tried to mount anything on them it would take the carbon fiber off the wheel and you could tell.

Exactly now with the white wheel who's to say that you couldnt just mount pinks on them?

I haven't seen any carbon look wheels in two years. So the only 1/10 wheel in white will be the WGT and all the other compounds will be on multi-colored wheels. Is that right?

In fact I haven't seen Jaco WGTs in a year. Canceled my orders since no one had them in stock or received any until after the indoor season was finished.

Turns out that the CRCs work well, last a long time and are readily available. Decision made.

Hopefully your conscience will keep you and others from doing this. I'm just saying...

I haven't tried the new white wheels yet, but I will say I have several warped carbon-look wheels, mostly rears. My BSR wheeled tires are all VERY true. Not knocking the Jacos, just stating my experience.
The only wobbling issue I have ever had has been the result of current 12th hub design, using a single screw to clamp the left side hub... Aside from that I think both oprions are round and true.

My issue is a wheel that is bigger (yielding less usable foam), heavier and almost twice the price on the hobby shop shelf. Just my opinion.

Believe me I'm not one you have to worry about, But there are plenty of slower people out there looking for any advantage.

I am not posting to say who's "product is better". If people are going to cheat they are going to cheat no matter what you do. If you think someone is cheating all you would have to do is check the shore on the tire. I can't believe there would be racers out there that would buy the donuts and mount the tires them self. All that, and you would have to do that at the race.

The Carbon wheels have been out of stock for awhile now. The company that was doing them went out of business. So we went to the all black wheel with the yellow stripe.


Thanks Drew

The BSR/CRC wheel is larger in diameter. It's also stiffer. Perhaps I have a few Carbon-look wheels that I've "squished" through some inadvertant contact during runs.

As for usable foam, that's just an issue with setting up your ride height in most instances. The larger wheel can be run with the same size sidewall, if you lower the car.

Like Drew, I'm not starting a brand war. I'm just saying that they both are good quality race tires, and we can all run whichever are legal at the events, or clubs we frequent.
