Yeah, and a VW looks like a Porsche, too. But it's not.

LOL


Speedy, a rim job is when you are a plumber, like Tony P. and have to get down into the bowl to pay the bills.

Similar to "Playing above the rim", except in this case you would be the one watching Tony fix your toilet with your wallet out.

Or maybe that is "Paying above the rim"?


On a serious note....
New Truck tires look like they will be REALLY good on sandy clay-dusty dirt tracks!

Ran the gold Bar Codes today at are indoor clay track. They ran pretty close to my Pink BK Bars. Happy that I have another tire to choose from. The Bar Codes look like they will wear a little better on are track to.

Fronts I ran the 4wd Bar Code fronts as are shop didn't have the 2wd fronts until this week so I will try the 2wd fronts next weekend along with the rears again and see what happens.

Hey Andy,
Are you guys planning on sending any Jconcepts drivers to the 2009 International Off-Road Grand Prix race at Yatabe Arena in Japan? Word is that Hot bodies is planning on sending Travis and Jesse. I started a thread for the race here: Yatabe Arena Int'l Off-Road Grand Prix 2009 I'm heading down for the race with a few of my Japanese friends and I hope to see some of the Jconcepts guys there.

Many of the Japanese/Yokomo drivers already run our product, but at this moment I dont think we're going to send anyone specifically to Japan for this race.

I always wanted to go to Yatabe, wish I could make it there. Hopefully I can make it to a Clash some time too.

Worn versions excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks where a light blue groove has formed. Available in sticky soft Blue compound and include firm foam inserts.

Definitely not prolines. Makes me want to bring the T4 outta retirement. I did recently try the groovy 2wd buggy fronts. Excellent compared to any other rib (or anyother 4wd fronts I've tried on the 2wd)in my tire box! I'd expect the same from these carvers.

Like virtually every JConcepts product. They excel. I ran them at the Clash this month. The conditions changed from some rain on practice day to drying out thru out the event. The name on this one is spot on.

Im sure youve all seen our new Slash body, and now we're offering wraps for it. Just spray on one color, apply the decals and viola, you have you have a professional look.
