Following his success in this seasons BRCA 1/12th National series foam tyre manufacturer Jaco are pleased to announce that Olly Jefferies will be joining their team as a factory supported driver. Olly used Jaco tyres throughout his season long campaign at which he dominated both the stock and the modified class with his Associated 12R5.1, up to this point Olly had received Jaco support through UK distributor CML Distribution. With world championships on the horizon a direct deal with Jaco has come at just the right time. This is what Olly has to say about the deal:
I found that Jaco tyres gave me consistency through an eight minute run and throughout the season I didn’t have to think about my tyres choice or prep, the Jaco foam worked well on the all the various tracks and layouts we raced on over the winter series, hopefully now working direct with Jaco it will present opportunities for me and I am very excited about working with them as I prepare for the worlds.
JACO have announced that their Rubberz line of pre mounted rubber sedan tires now come glued on the company’s new Prism wheel. This new wheel has been designed to specifically suit rubber tires with just the right amount of flex for superior traction and durability. Also new from JACO is the release of pre mounted Nitro Shoes to their new Prism 1.5 wheel. Featuring a 1.5 degree taper, the wheel has a smaller inner edge diameter which matches the camber used on most nitro touring cars and so ensures an even depth of foam accross the surface. JACO claim these new lightweight wheels offer a longer tire life, increased traction, improved forward bite and more consistent performance.
