I know CVDs fit the rear hub carriers and the front caster block assemblies, but I cant say whether or not the AE CVAs are the same length.

I am running goosebumps on a track that has a soft/dusty top that is loose and they work AWESOME, by far the best tire for my track.

What is unique about our track, some areas are loose and some areas have traction. Either condition the goosebumps works good. I purchasd these tires for my B44 at the start of the season to see how they worked, and to see if I can get a edge on the competition, now they are a common tire out there.

Works good for when track is both dry and wet.

Here is a pitcure showing my track surface.

In my limited experience with Double Dee's and Goose Bumps I would have to agree that:
Loose/Dirty/Loamy tracks are best for Goose Bumps
- I was able to wheelie on command on a very loose track with GB's, hard to believe how well they do on a loose surface

Dry/Hard Packed/Clean tracks are best for Double Dee's
- Great forward traction and side bite on a clean swept hard pack track, I liked them better than hole shots

Will those new 8th scale tires trickle down to the 10th scale line? Trying some Goosebumps on the T4 this weekend, GB's been working well for me on the b44. also getting the J82 I just built out for some fun. Keep up the good work/developement JC!

1.) Is there any way to use JConcepts Rulux based wheels on the front of the Losi 2wd xxx-cr buggy, or creative ways to improvise to use them in front of the 2wd? Let me know.

2.) Also am I correct to assume it's okay to use Rulux based wheels on the rear of the Losi 2wd/4wd, as well as the front of the 4wd, without any concern of alerting off-set or legal widths when going from Losi wheels to those Rulux wheels far as legality goes, etc?

Thanks,

New bar code tires work good. I like them. They are similar to the bk bar but tend to work alittle better when the track dry's out alittle. On a really moist track the bkbar is better. It's great to have this option now and if they are made in a rear truck tire or a 4wd front it would be sweet.

The best thing about these tires is they are easy to glue and break in in a rush and the foam is like a bomb one. Good job on the barcodes guys.

Beat my best lap time by 2 tenths with these on the rear of my b4.
