Default JACO Prism wheels win GLC

A big "thank you" to all the drivers who ran JACO tires at the Great Lakes race this past weekend. I would like to congratulate Josh Cyrul for his win in 1/8 and TQ in 1/10 sedan. Also congrats to Bobby Flack, the winner of 1/10 sedan, and Andy Power who helped make it a JACO 1-2-3 sweep in sedan. The top 3 finishers in sedan ran the new Prism 1.5 wheels with the molded-in camber.

Do you know what hardness they used in qualifying and what they used in the mains for sedan.

Josh told me he ran 45 rears and 38 fronts and Bobby ran 42 rears. You can typically run a little firmer tire on the rear since the Prism wheels should get more bite than a standard wheel.

Hi Jack,

Should I cut the prism tires cambered? In which positions is the performance better? Waht do you prefer for my mechanic camber. Should I reduce my mechanic camber. I usually use 3 deg camber on my local track with normal tires. If use the prism tires , does it mean I have to reduce the camber on the car.

thnx

Just cut your Prism's like you would your normal tire and then enjoy the benifits of more forward and side traction. The biggest difference for me since I started running the Prism's is how much better my car handles the high speed sweepers and just feels more consistent and locked in coming out of every corner. You can always make changes to your setup to take advantage of the Prism but I would start off with your current setup so you can get a good baseline.

Now if only customs would release my tires in Portugal, our team could actually run them.
They arrived last Wednesday and are still in customs. Unbelievable.

I cut my tires with 1degree camber like I always did before. The biggest thing I changed between the prisms and old wheel was the amount of rear toe-in. I use much less now as the prisms have a lot more forward grip and rear traction all around.
