I agree. All some people are doing is trying to get SC trucks to handle like STs. If that's the case why not just race STs?

Not sure about trying to make my SCT work like a stadium truck but like all racers I do try to make my SCT handle better and if that is a ribbed front tire then so be it. As soon as the truck 2ft away and on the track with the body on people have zero clue what tires you have on and no affect on this all important scale appearence BS.

The point of SC racing started out as scale racing on a budget. Ribbed tires are not scale unless you are talking about motorcycles, ATVs or buggies in the sand. Look at the chassis of a lot of the "race" SCs. They are basically STs with bumpers.

Yes, the flatter insert provided better test results .

slashracer Is there any plans for Barcodes for truck in green compound?
Not at the moment.

thepaulness hey do you guys over at j concepts make your bodys for one truck with the dimples for the body mounts and every thing??

and whats up with all the punisher bodys comeing out? is it for preformence, because it looks straight up ugly in my opinion. no offence to you all your other bodys are great!!
Not exactly sure what you mean, but all of our bodies that are sold for a specific car has mounting dimples for that car.

The Punisher line does give a performance advantage and looks are for the eye of the beholder. This has been our most successful raceline of bodies and there are plenty of people that love the look .

Jmuck69 This is so lame! Can you guys appeal?
http://www.shortcourse.eu/
No need to appeal and we're not really concerned. ROAR is only doing what they feels best and we support ROAR. We don't always agree on things ROAR does, but we feel it's still very important to have a governing body for sanctioned racing. The Rib front will stay solid in our SCT tire lineup .

Any chance of producing a 1/10 Buggy King pack? Body of choice, Set of front and rear tires with the new inserts and a Medium race bag would be ideal.
