I started running at ocrc. It is the dirt from so cal raceway. Most people run holeshots with bomb one. I have tried x3000 in pink with bomb one they were a close second to holeshots. At the end of the straight the double dees just would wash out to much. I thought that might be from the soft foam. The soil is pure dirt and when wet is hooked up but as it drys out there is a small layer of dust that causes the trck to become loose. Thought the double dees might help.

Based on experience with that dirt and surface I would consider trying some buggy grip on the tires. When the track surface has not taken any rubber making the rubber slightly softer normally helps. If you can talk to Frank Root (JConcepts driver) at the track he can probably give you the proper procedure for that track. I would think the stock inserts would work well in those conditions. 2-stage inserts normally work better when the track surface has taken rubber and has a lot of grip.

Thanks Jason, but I checked the JC website(duh) and it says 1.00" for B4/B44 and 1.775" for T4.

I think there may have been some confusion, our apologies. You are correct, as is the site, but if you use the standard type ball cups on the rear then you'll want to use the stock 2.00" turnbuckle.

The Double Dees work good at OCRC. I usually run the stock JConcepts foam, trim the inside and outside edges. Also, try to use Buggy Grip applied about 10 minutes before you run.
