Early September. We are waiting on sticker sheets (grill-headlights) And the instruction sheet. This body will fit Both of the AE's. Both Losi's, and both of the Slash's.

Default What's up with this?????

I purchased a set of Goose Bumps a couple weeks back and went to the track to do some testing yesterday. Ran my usually setup and tires to get a base line to work from, put on the Goose bumps and back out to get results on handling. After the first battery made a shock adjustment but didn't notice any problems with the tires (didn't expect any so I admitt I didn't do an inspection). Second battery in and now making full throttle runs and working on faster laps. About half way through the battery I come down the front straight and hear this awful noise coming from my truck. Some one yells "you're blowing the tire off the rim". Upon inspection the photo shows what I found on one of the tires. A second tire had came loose from the rim and upon inspection I found it had glue in only 1 spot about 1/4" long on the outside, inside seemed to be glued around the entire rim. I don't understand how this got through quality, nor do I understand why the tire's rubber appears to be breaking apart. Can someone please explain this to me? Is this what I can expect when I buy these tires?

YES! Seeing as though we won the nationals, we deserve cool wheels too!

In the past I've had several quality issues with products from a few companies. And, like you, have emailed them concerning the issues. Of the half dozen companies there has only been one that has even answered the emails, much less attempted to deal with the issues. I have seen several people come to our local track to get involved in rc racing and have walked away from it because of the quality problems with items they purchase. We pay top dollar for the products and get nothing when there is a problem. It's easy to see why people reach a point where it's alot less trouble to find another hobby.

The tires are premounts.

I have only bought one set of pre-mounts. The glue job was horrible on them. I love JC products, but I will not be purchasing any more pre-mounts. I will continue to buy their tires and wheels though as they are top notch!

For the old people.

Shoes=wheels. Wheels in particular Rulux. Lol In reference to the 22 and 22t.


My issue with JC are their " locking" 10th scale wheel nuts. They lock as much as a paper clip. Ruined two sets of Rulux wheels. Forgot to loc tite them and hate to cut off another pair or new flip outs. Lol.

Went back to nylon nuts. But they did ship me a new set of rims, from my first blow out. So their CS are respectable. Shoot them an email and they may send u a voucher or something. But premounts almost always need re gluing.
