I agree J Con has the best CS I have dealt with. Even operator errors are treated with the same respect.

My outdoor short course racing season is over today. My only tires on the front for the season were dd's, and for the rears I'd switch between dd's and calibers. I like the dd's, but more than half the lugs are ripped clean off, and my calibers look brand new. Both of the sets have seen the same amount of use. Should I buy another set of dd's and hope they hold up? Or try something new?

Thanks;

Josh

We really need a 2.2 Stadium Truck CC foam, those produced by another company leave a lot to be desired..

I understand tires wear out, they didn't wear out the lugs broke off the casing. The pins are still nearly full length. Sorry I can't while my ass with hundred dollar bills, so therefore I'd rather not replace tires every three hours of use.

Honestly, if you do not want to spend the money, then learn to drive better with the calibers. If they do not get enough grip, then make SMALL changes to the car, and adjust your driving style a bit. If you want a tire with comparable features as the DD's, try the Subcultures. Although a little weak on the endurance side internally for mod SCT, they have a 3 staged pattern which is helpful to lower cost because you will replace them less. I also learned that the further down the tread was worn, the better traction I had(slippery, smooth track). It also helps if you run stock classes, because there is a lot less tire spin.

Sounds good to me.

I also wanted to comment on your tires. I've been mounting a bunch of new rubber as of late and I've noticed that your tires mount and balance so much easier it's rediculous. Thank you!

Just wanted to see if there any updates as to when these will be available? Also, are they always available on the JC site before anywhere else? thanks!

We don't have a date yet; you will see an official press release when it's getting close .

The JC site normally has them a few days early.

Thank you JC

I have both AE and K cars. I would love to be able to run identical rims on both types of cars and keep my spares inventory lower

The 3344B's are in stock now, you should be good to go. We are looking into white, no date at this time.

What size wrench is needed for the 8/32 and 4mm SCT wheel nuts? I plan to get a set for both my SC10 and SC10 4x4.

4mm = 7mm Nut driver (silver AE)
