Not all that helpful, but blue bacodes are one of the favorite tires down at the The Ohio RC Factory.. I've only been to crcrc a few times though and the dirt is quite different.. So I'm not very helpful there.

Of the drivers that are running them successfully, do you have any names that we might know? If known we can contact them and get you hooked up.

If your track has gone to blue groove you might not need to use any tire traction. Photos of your track would be helpful and we can point you in the right direction. Tire traction isn't necessary in all circumstances.

Thank you Jason for the reply. I talked to Jon from your company and he very kindly and professionally told me that he knew tire dope is everything at CRCRC. He did not know what to do for our track and the team drivers put out alot of hours testing different tire dopes and even if he knew he would not let me know. No big deal

Thank You

Tire break in is key with barcodes. Once broken in they are a real dream to run on. I can't wait to try the V2 I'm hearing about. I hope they have a different part number than the original one's.

Paul,
How you been? Any way that body would fit onto one of my brushless JATO's? I really like the look of that body. I just got back from the mid east doing contract work for the military. Christopher and I are getting ready to get back into the race scene. I will be running a Tigermoth set up.

I saw Proline is coming out with softer closed cell inserts for SC. Any plans on that for JConcepts? Still waiting for some pics of the V2 truth body for SC10. I know Tower has them in stock but would like to see some pics before I spend my hard earned coin.

There are some prepainted truth v2 bodies for sale on eBay, you can get a better look there & a small picture of it in the new Car Action 'Short Course' magazine. Hope that helps...

I saw the small pic in Short Course magazine. Thats how I knew about it. The bodies on Ebay must have all sold, couldn't find any. Thanks for the help though.

Question for somebody over at JC.

The insert on the left is from a new SC Carver. The insert on the right is from a SC Barcode I bought in December.

Has JC changed to the darker blue insert now for all of their SC tires? Just wondering because the feel much firmer to me and lack the sidewall support that the lighter blue insert has.
