Is Jconcept planning on doing another vehicle? Now that the B44 is out, is the Jconcept team planning on another unique vehicle?

Woud be nice to see a Jconcept version of the Tamiya DF-03 chassis. 4wd buggy layout like a 2wd...

Pics attached...

Actually since I was just mounting some new JC tires, I was thinking that some pre-mounts or molded 1/10 inserts would be VERY VERY nice... I think 1/10 buggy is the only class with out pre-mounted tires. I wonder why this is as gluing tires really sucks! Not that it is difficult I just hate it

+1 on that. I always end up gluing my finger to something when I'm doing my tires!

I hate gluing tires too. That damn Losi glue (with the tube) always dries out at the top and makes it near impossible to reinsert the tube. I have to stick the top of the bottle in acetone to clean it out.

About how much do you guys think the premounted tires are worth over the wheels and tires seperate?

I am just trying to figure out what price range to charge for gluing tires. I'll set up a table at the races and glue them for racers who don't want to do it themselves.

Maybe $5.00 a pair?


Maybe if it takes off i'll bring my airbrush to the track too!!!

I'd pay $5/pair. So with that being said...why don't you come to the REEDY International Race of Champions at Yatabe Arena on Feb 28th through March 1st? I'll need you to mount up my tires for the race

I think thats a really good idea, assuming you want to bust out 30 sets of 1/8th truck tires while painting 15 bodies, haha.

Default local track dealers

Take a note from the Mob, each track needs a dealer.

They'll have the tires (w/ or w/o holes), rims (enlarged holes), and choice of foams. Mounted signed -sealed- delivered!

A guy could easily pay all his racing fees off that! Charge $1 more for set of tires, $1 more for rims, $1 more for foam (then you can get online) and $5 to mount.

Better yet, turn em back in to reuse the rims!
