Those are the new nitro shoes. They use the same rim as the serpent wheel but white. They look just like twisters now.
The old 5 spoker is history.

I think once Jaco started making tires for Serpent, they adopted the Serpent wheel design. Not 100% sure tho

Then, my apologies for this... sheeesh! how hate that all manufacturers use the same rim... In the past were a little more different.

It is strong, round, and the glue sticks to it great. Why not use it? Our customers and dealers are thrilled about it. We lost a lot of sales because the old rim was not as durable. That is a tough pill to swallow when you spend so much time selecting the rubber and making sure it all stays together, only to find out the rim does not hold up as well. We always try to improve the product in search of the elusive "perfect tire".

Jack, I agree with richey. Your tire and wheel combo is the best on the market.

Uhm... three powerful reasons, but... all the manufacturers using the same rim lose a very important thing, who is the capability of being recognized by the differently shaped rims. Probably the old wheels weren't the best, but I bet with you that all people knew who used Jaco wheels and what not. Anyway... if it's strong, round and the glue sticks well... who cares.

Planning to test another time Jacos... in the very first gave me a hard day blowing 3 sets in three qualifiers in a row (grrr! still pulling my hair for that day...), but liked them when solved... Need to test them another time, specially on the 1/8.

Here is the best laugh you could possibly get at this event..
http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/...ne_18_2006.pdf

Now I know what happened because I was standing Right beside the 2 when it happened, And I think you may have gotten this one backwards. Or Robbie Just has Alot Of $$$ to throw around. Just my 2 cent.Not that it matters.

I'm not sure if I'd say you were standing next to the 2, but the 3 people who explained what happened weren't on another team, and highly credible.
