Cannott address 1/10th wheels but the latest batch of Jaco 1/8th whels are great - hit a stalled car in the crosstown at the GLC and took the right front corner off my car and only bent the wheel - no cracks anywhere, and I was one of the first ones to bitch about he previous batch, great job Jack!

We have been running the latest batch of Jaco's on four different 1/8th scale cars. I totally agree with Rick - We have used a minimum of 25 sets - no broken rims - no "peeling" off the rim. These tires are awesome.

If you are having a problem with wheels breaking in 1/10 send them back to me and we will replace them. I have not heard too much about breaking wheels this year (knock on wood) so you may have an older batch.

Jack,


I have bought several pairs of tires over the last couple of years. The tires don't come with any stickers or decals. Where can I get the nitro shoe stickers for my car bodies ?


Thanks

Default Camber/taper

I was just wondering if the extra camber required means that more taper needs to be cut onto the tires- if any at all?

I can't say that the tires were new, I got them from an airplane hobby shop. They were 8th scale tires. I didn't keep them, once they broke....

Hey Jack,

what is the "maximum" (or is it "minimum") Diameter (in mm) you recommend we "DO NOT GO PAST" when running the new 2 stage tires...I have a set coming this week for me to try at my home track....

I plan on starting off @ 60mm fronts & 62mm rears ("stock" set up recommended size(s) for the V one RRR WC), but how far can I run them down????? (being a "wrapped" tire, is going down to the 2nd layer, a "good" or "bad" thing??????

fastracer- PM me with your address and I will send you some.
theRED5- those were the Mugens that the rims got brittle on. Send them back for replacements. They WERE crap.
ghoppa- you can run the wraps all the way down to the base and even through it a little, but I would not recommend it. As for the optimum diameter, check with the people at your track or go by previous experience.

Thanks, that'd be great, I look to see if I still have them.
