At least nothing harmed the Cleveland, Snowbirds, and ROAR Nats trophies. Whew, that was a close one. Where was I? Oh yeah. We have a guarantee that if our tires come off the wheels, we will replace them. So, the fact that no one has taken us up on this means either that you are wrong or you were trying to be funny.

In fact, I seriously doubt any of these guys would run tires that don't stay on the rim. Do you? Maybe you should ask Bobby Flack how well his tires performed as he worked his way up 7 mains at the Nats. I'm sure he didn't stop to glue them back on the rims at every pit stop. While you are at it, e-mail me where you work so I can get in touch with your customers and tell them funny things about problems I am having with your work.
Jack, this is an open forum, not your manufacturer's forum. It's where we, the racers, get to voice our opinions as we feel them.

I've been racing Jaco's for years but I also race UFRAs, TRC's and BSR's (Pro10). I have my beefs with Jaco but I won't voice them here because you're taking things personally. This is our forum. You're the only negative manufacturer voice here. . .says something.

Jacks comments did not sound negative to me. A bit anoyed and defensive maybe...

How about some Jaco foams for the m18?

Hi Jack,

Don't take them comments seriously.

It's obvious you are not a regular RCTech reader before bed.
People say silly things here all the time, some with hidden agendas, others are just plain stupid or trying to show how much they know (or don't).

I remembered sometime back when everybody's a "SOLE DISTRIBUTOR" and stock lots of GQ tires and it's obvious they had to say good things about China made products.
This place is their supermarket.

The contact info on the WWW.RCTexas.com site is working now, I called Duane and told him about the problem.

Boomer-It "says something" that I'm the only negative manufacturer voice? What does it say? That I care? I'm also the only manufacturer getting brutalized on here. What kind of proud business owner wouldn't be defensive. As a paying customer, you should be glad I care enough to bitch. I'm not content to read derogatory comments about my product and I certainly don't want my customers thinking our tires fall off the rims. That is a serious accusation that has the potential to negatively impact sales.
I must have missed the "No manufacturers allowed" sign at the door. By saying "this is our forum" are you implying that I should be excluded as a manufacturer? Please clarify your point.

Yeahhh.. what`s happened to that at the end? but based from manufacturer site, there are 3 distributors across US?

China Made? hmmmm, not really sure about that but name brand like Sony, Panasonic, Kyosho, ect already made in China mostly.

Anyone who thinks a certain product is inferior simply because it is made in China is a racist jerk.

Jack I recently used you product and I found them to be very very good, in fact I would say probably the "best" foams I have used. Don't take internet chat too seriously.

Pyramid,

If you are not sure, I'll tell you. Japanese companies have their own way (Japanese run, Japanese QC) of doing things in china.
But there are also the knocks-offs offering similiar products with the same brand name but inferior quality.

So don't mix up.

Quick check at your site tells us you are one of the "sole distributors" for GQ too



404forbidden : I AM A JERK SO WHAT. but I didn't imply Chinese made stuffs are inferior in quality.
What I said was alot of people say things with hidden agendas here. So beware.
