I ran the new Jaco 2 stage nitro tires last weekend for the first time. I ran std. nitro shoes thru the 2nd qualifer then switched to the new tires for the last round.(That was all I changed!) They were 2 to 3 tenths a lap faster!!! The tire wear was better, at that track 1 was wearing @.0050" in each run. It droped down to @,0030" With the 2 stage tires. The overall feel was just better, the car was more "locked IN".

Will there be a 2 stage tire for the electric carpet sedans? Has there been any testing in that area?

We just got our first shipment of 2-stage tires in and they look very interesting, I can't wait to try them on the track. It doesn't look like you can run them as small as regular tires but in the 58mm+ range they should be good.

Mid teens retail means nearly double the street price. I wouldnt use these all the time so the cost increase would not be double

I would like to see some form of rules to keep the cost down in the UK such as max engine price and no of tyres used for a meeting ect but as most people buy on the net it would be hard to arrange.

Cheers

How do these compare to the Kawahara multi ring tires?

Will it be coming over to South East Asia?

The tires will come in limited shore numbers since they seem to work best at 40+ shore. Rears will be available in 40, 42, and 45. Fronts in 38, 40, 42, and 45. As far as how they compare to multi rings, they give a completely different feel on the track than any current tire. We have not run them one on one with multi rings, but we have seen significant improvement in lap times on tracks where multi rings have been run. I am not dodging the question, I simply don't want to make claims if I can't directly prove it. As far as availability in SE Asia, we will be sending samples to our distributor this week for evaluation.
