Default Whatever happened to Jaco NitroShoes?

I eventually made the switch from rubber tires to Jaco NitroShoes for my 1/10 AWD Touring Car (which I don't race...just parking lot bashing). It's a HPI RS4 3 18SS and due to the chassis, likes the 2Deg offset NitroShoes (40 or 45 rating) on the rear. My son also likes the NitroShoes on his NTC3, but doesn't need the offset ones.

I think Tower Hobbies dropped these last eyar sometime and it appears that Jaco may have stopped making them.

Anybody know if NitroShoes are still available?

Also, are there any other manufacturer that makes an equivalent product?

I'm not sure what's going on, but I sure can't get the offset Nitroshoes anymore. Some of the websites that sell them, offered them at a discount last year. Tower Hobbies only stocks a few of them now. Most seem to be discontinued.

I havn't found the offset wheels with other manufacturer's, such as GRP. Doesn't mean they don't make them....just means I havn't found them.

For parking lot bashing, rubber tires don't last at all (except for the drifting hard rubber tires). If I can't get foams, I think I'll pack in the on-road stuff.

Thanks NitroTherapist......guess I should have been more specific......what happened to the 2Deg offset NitroShoes? The Zero Deg ones rub on the 18SS chassis?
