HEYY, First time JC user. How do your tyres compare to that of Proline? Also is your 1.8th wing that you can change stuff on a really good upgrade?

thanks JMH

Is there any plans on designing a body like the flo-tek?

Now 1/8th scale I have seen both schools of thought out there and they both work just as well. Just not on 1/10th scale!
Ty is correct; you should run holes in the tire 1/8th & 1/10th when using the Blue CC inserts. It reduces bounce as it allows the air to escape faster. You will have to be very careful washing your tires; never dunk them into the water. Just use a wet brush to clean them and then lightly rinse them.

I will have to let the JC customers answer this one since we don't ever use PL tires .

This is kind of a strange topic considering JConcepts was the first company to have louvers to cut out front and rear of their SCT bodies to reduce the kit affect. However, we will look into the need for even more venting for future bodies.

Depends on user and type of track. I have used them both on clay and outdoors. Both tire's work on both surfaces. I personally love Jconcepts gold bar codes on indoor clay with med to high traction. On low to med indoor clay I prefer other tire's. The wear on the bar codes are pretty nice Get a set and have fun racing

I see you have a new wing that debut at the Summer Indoor Nationals. Steve Hartson and other JC drivers were using it. What is it called?

I would love to see a SCB body for the SC10 chassis. Any chance that JC will be developing a OSFW Short Course Buggy body?

Any chances in seeing the Elevated bead design coming to 1/10 scale? Light weight wheels seems to make sense in any scale.

Any chance we could get some chrome spinners for the SCT?

Default Tires

I run on a super high traction red clay indoor track that is kept wet. The only tire known to work is a slick. If the layout isn't changed every 4 weeks or so the track gets dry and dusty after a few heats and the slicks start becoming real slick.

What tire could work for the PRO-4 class when the track is wet (super high traction) but still work ok when the track dries out a bit?

We've tried a TON of different treads with no success. The only thing that will bite is slicks. Anyone else have this problem?

It's a new Hi-Clearance wing giving more clearance for the tires under full compression. They will be ready after the Worlds .

Yes; Josh has joined the JConcepts team for 2011/2012.

We think it would be cool too, but we would need AE to make some changes to help it look its best.

I don't think so.

Unfortunately your not going to be able to have your birthday cake and eat it too...ha I would recommend that you have a set of slicks for the wet track and a set for dry. There's just no way that your going to get max performance out of 1 set of tires for multiple conditions.

What changes would be needed? A new chassis? Body mounts?

I think it would be great if AE entered this class as well.
