I understood you Korey, I was just busting Jaco a bit for fun. There does seem to be a good batch that made many people and a batch that made people Seems like russian roulette to me.

I have run both compounds which would be CRC aka BSR and the Jaco. beyond the offset being slightly narrower for the Jaco's, I can't tell any difference in handling. I would go with best availability and price.

It might be all in my head but I like the Jaco's better than the BSR/CRC tires. As Brian mentioned you do have a different offset as well as a different rim diameter. I ran both at Timezone back to back with the same diameter and for some unknown reason the car felt better on the Jaco's. No empirical data to back this up. One thing we found at the Birds is that the mold for the BSR rims is slightly off for the rears. You might have to massage one of the screw holes to get all four screws in.

Default The Jaco Blues

Okay,
So we can run any Jaco Blues we want at the NWIC, old or new? Can I mix 'n' match?

TTFN,

As long as there Jaco Blues you are good to go! Any vintage and combo... But I would not mix older and newer as your car will act funny. I have been telling people for months to keep them as sets as Jaco has made some running changes.

Default New H30 Layout?

Holy Technical Track

Nice start list, though. Looks like most of the big TC drivers also know their way around with a 1/12th scale.

What?!?!?!?!?!

You mean to tell me the Tekin I bought last June is already obsolete?

I suppose I am going to need a new motor too? When will it end?



Calgon, take me away.

Actually the new LRP seems to be on par with the current line up of ESC's based upon the results from the Snowbirds where Black Diamond, Tekin and LRP were well represented in the main. That's not to say that future software advances won't make it obsolete.
