Maybe with some other mfgs tires that have a structured sidewall where you have something to glue to, but not with any of the Jconcepts product. The one set of Subcultures I tried gluing the holes up for more support I ruined because there's no sidewall to glue to, the CA goes around the surrated portion of the tire and gets absorbed by the foam. You know where that goes after you do that!



Just so we're clear, I'm not knocking your product or your company or asking for a pile of free stuff, I'm just not sure how to do what you are suggesting without wasting a lot of tires from CA run off.

Our original tire Goose Bumps have the internal side-wall ribbing and the Rulux wheel was designed at the same time as the GB tire. Future products may determine the use of the holes .

What tire and compound (1/10 2wd buggy) works well on an indoor carpet track?
I've actually have never run off-road carpet, so I can't really give you a firm anwser. I would think the normal blue or green compounds in the rear and maybe an orange or white in the front.

Indoor, dry, semi blue groove, medium to high tire wear with medium to high traction what compound would you recommend?

I just mounted my Hi-Flow body on my TQ SX10 SC and it looks good. Pics will come later. Notice my front wheels aren't tucked under, but the back ones are. It's no big deal to me but I am going to my first ROAR race next month and hope I can race with it. Doesn't rules state the wheels must tuck under? I have Double Dee's mounted on wheels made for the Blitz/Slash 4x4.

The track needs to have extreme high grip and or have high track temps for the orange.

Most of the SCT's are like this to some extent as the body gets narrow in the front. If it seems more than usual then make sure to check the front track width of your truck; needs to be within 296mm. I know most Losi and Kyosho's are near or over 296mm .

Default What's the deal with the Silent Speed Spurs?

Curious what makes them better than Kimbroughs? Also when will these be available?

TIA

The gears are machined instead of molded; this gives you a much truer running gear for better gear mesh. The slipper-pad is also captured in a deeper pocket that better holds the pads. The gear also has markings to tell you what tooth count it is without removing.

They are in transit via slow boat; so a couple more weeks.

A personal note to the customer service folks at Jconcepts:

Thank you so much! I purchased a hauler bag that had an issue I couldn't fix. I made one phone call (that was answered by a real person), (per the nice lady who answered the phones' request) emailed one picture, received a prompt response in about an hour, and received the replacement in about a week (cross country).

It is a pleasure to purchase products from a company like yours, knowing on the rare occasion that there is an issue, it is handled with professionalism and timeliness.

I sincerely appreciate your efforts.
