Jack-

Is Cyrul still designing wheels for you? Has he tested them yet? Just wanted his imput into the design. Just had a few questions for him.

Thanks

slewis - Yes, I am still doing all the rim design work for Jaco. I have not tested them yet though as tires went out to the other drivers to test. I only recieved samples to make sure the molds were produced correctly.

As a side note, the rear rims are just under the legal 50mm max diameter while the fronts are 49mm. This gives a slightly smaller front rim (as was done on the Prism 1/12 tires) to keep the balance of foam more similar from front to rear as most nitro TC's now always run the 2mm split. This yields more steering to match the extra rear traction the 1.5 taper and revised flex of the rear rim generates.

Due to the constraints in the rules in 1/8 (max O.D. limit) and the fact that the cars are maxed out as far as I.D. clearance, we weren't able to use the taper on the 1/8 rims. With the TC's, there was some room to work with the taper, front face stiffness and back edge flex that all worked out pretty spot on.

I'm sure once everyone has an oppertunity to test out this concept first hand that they will be very happy with the performance and especially the increased stability and consistancy that will be generated. Not to mention these rims are quite a bit lighter and they are made from very strong material that will be next to impossible to break or damage.

Correct me if I am wrong but does this mean the front and rear tires would come with an almost 2mm split, without having to true the tires?

A number of "new" tires were released at the Capital Classic. However, it was the JACO 1.5 Prism sedan tires that impressed the most with a 1-2 qualifying performance. Ralph Burch and Josh Cyrul took the top spots at this fantastic event with the new Prism sedan tires. Both drivers felt the added rear traction resulting from the tapered wheel allowed them to remove rear toe-in, thus resulting in higher top speed. Mains are tomorrow.

Congrats to Ralph Burch on his win in sedan with the new wheels. Ralph won by well over a full lap in the main. Also, Mike Blackstock ran the fastest lap in the main on the Prism 1.5 tires. Half of the cars in the A-main were on the new Prism wheels and all ran without any tire problems.

just a few questions regarding these tyres;

what sort of foam is used? Japanese (high rubber content), american (low rubber content) or european ("wet" heavy foam type)??

also where can you buy them online?
