Thanks,
Trust me my man, your taking a step backwards with modding for these wheels. They arent as strong and hurt the handling slightly. I know they look really cool but stick with the dish's i tried these spokers.

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.
good to hear. I ordered a set to try out at RCHR.

I would imagine they would be perfect. The rounders werent bad but i think i should have used a pink taper pin up front cause they felt good before i glued the rounders up. I was more concerned about wearing those out cause the track was getting really dry. I think a clay bobcat with these barcodes would be a great tire combo there for me to try next time i make the trip. I had a blast racing there.

With those DD's my 4whl was hooked coming off the straight and through the infield. The foams are great that come with these tires.

I have been running holeshots and groovy's. I also tried the bobcats in the front but went back to the ribbed front. I just mounted up a set of DD's so I plan on trying those wednesday night. According to Mark and Kyle the DD's wear better. Also mounted up silver tapers so I will try those too.

It's probably not worth the hassle of trying to convert, but in NO WAY does this wheel hinder performance as one is suggesting!

Just ran the Bar codes for the first time on the new track in Huntington CA with Red Losi Block heads in the front, Great combination until the front Bar code is released. Ended up TQing and winning the main with this combo, and the car just felt great the whole night and had very little tire wear.

Great job JC on putting together some good tires for us to use.

It's not as aerodynamic...... we know whats up here in NY... everybody switched to the rulux and then we all switched back cause they didn't handle as well.

I wish they did cause i like how there are 2 pin slots.

Thanks,
A while back I and several others converted out B4's to use Losi front wheels. We felt they were straighter and more durable, not to mention the conveience of not having to mess with the bearings. One could put AE axle blocks on a losi but you will have to use the AE diameter steering hinge pin (drill out the C-hub) so you'd have to find something that would take e-clips, AE doesn't. The AE steering arm is also way shorter which could do weird things to your steering feel because of the ackerman change. PW is probably right, it's not really worth the trouble. Just keep beating these guys up to make Rulux wheels for the Losi.

The rears have the same offset as AE and Losi, they are meant to be compatible.
