Paul,
Any specific brand of motor spray? or will any work? How about CRC cleaners?
Do you ever spray bar codes?

Also, please explain the difference between Gold vs blue bar codes at a track like Newred?

Thanks and have a GREAT day!

The new RB5 WC Finnisher body fits the buggy rather nicely. The length is also suitable for the extended chassis. You can see mounted pics in the Team C thread, page 60. If you're running the Team C SC you can use the OSFM Raptor body. It fits like a glove!

Hows everyone liking the new Pressure Point SCT tires? I saw one guy running Carvers on his XXX-SCT today and he was FLYING...his truck was really hooked up. It's time to upgrade the Barcodes.

Unless they are pinks which last for 1 day compared to my blues that are 4 race days old and I'm .5 faster with em=]. Bald blues i c are even faster, AND I CAN'T THEM BALD FAST ENOUGH! lol.

Any link to longer screws on amain?
I have heard of a few guys running a slightly longer screws, but I don't have a link or measurement.

I like Kalgard contact cleaner, but most contact cleaners work well.

NewRed - When the track is fresh/damp the golds are amazing. They have great traction and more cornerspeed than anything else. Once the track starts to dry out, gets dusty, then I switch to Blue Bar Codes.

We have be trying to get licensing for over a year . I'm pretty sure several body manufactures have been trying for a while too .

Maybe in the future, but not right now.

I need help. I run 2wd on a tight indoor carpet offroad track. I have ran just about everything I can think of and pink compound (bk bars, suburbs) work the best. I hate how fast they wear tho. What compound should I get from JC to get the traction I need and longer wear. thanks

Paul,

I am in jacksonville and buy stuff from the RC Outlet (hrp's retail store). They are out of stock of a bunch of JC items such as 0200 body, and 3344B wheels, preasure points, pre-mount tires, 2012m, etc. Is it because JC is out of stock as well...or just hrp jax needs to tighten up?

Thank you
