How do Jconcepts pre-mounts deliver air to the tire? A hole in the wheel or a hole in the tire?

The 1/8th buggy premounts have the hole in the tire with med/firm molded inserts.

Hey Andy, can you please answer these questions fairly quickly? I need to place an pretty large order of tires today. These tires are all for my B4 buggy.

1) I am running one very hard packed track with a thin layer of dust. Which compound for your 1/10 Bar Code rear tires would provide the best traction and is the most forgiving for changing track conditions? Blue or Gold?

How would you compare the traction provided by Bar Code vs BK Bar Red?

2) How many "really good runs" can I get out of a set of you 1/10 Bar Code Rear in Blue and Gold compound?

3) How many "really good runs" can I get out of a set of you 1/10 Double Dees Rear in Green compound?



Thanks.

Thanks.
1) It sounds like you would be looking for the Blue compound in this situation. The Blue Bars codes are a bit softer than reds, and provide excellent traction.

2) The Blues, it really depends on the surface. I have gotten 3 really good runs out of a set in Mod...so more in 13.5 or 17.5

3) The Double Dees last a little longer, maybe 5 good runs from those. It all goes back to what motor, driving style, track surface ect. for a final call.

Hope this helps!!
