Pink taper pins are the best choice at that point but I would love to find an alternative as they don't last long, any chance blue or orange would work comparably?
when the track dries out I would try Blue BC, Gold BC work the best when the track is wet.

Hey Frank, Whats your take on JC making Gold DD's Yes/NO......

PW, Any plans for some 2 stage tire foam? Just a thought since we run them alot in the rear with the bar codes.

When you run a larger pin, like a DD, it is usually to work through a certain amount of top layer (dust, marbles, etc.), and usually on the clay tracks (where one would use Gold's), there really isn't too much dust, not enough to warranty going to more pin that the Bar Codes..IMO.

Question for the JConcepts guys... The high-flow JC body for the MP9.. Just confirming it has the detachable nose body piece for it?

Can I +2 that?? LOL.

Wish the body was a little more flowing, and looked like a 1/8th buggy other then a 1/10th buggy and maintain battery clearance. Also good cooling, and i LOVE the dip down in the roof on some of the bodies.

Thanks

actually you mount the fronts one way & the rears another way. I'm trying to remeber which way is which it actually has some info on there web site. but as mentioned you can try them either way to see which works best for you. with the RT5 it worked out good that way they can be ran either way.

Start with the V out at the front and the Y out at the rear. I havent tried them the other way (will be doing some testing soon) but this is the way the team guys have been running them.
