Spinning the wheels on concrete?
i find they are good one they are even slighty scuffed...a few min of a sand paper or a quick shot with belt sander should be good, after that they are so good its crazy, mine have 0 pin on 80% of the tire and grib so much, more bite=green v1s they are just planted! not always a good thing tho.

It's a new tire we are working on; no ETA yet.

Does it matter what way I put on a silent spur? The holes in it resemble the vents in the AE vented slipper plates. Depending on which side I put on first has diferents results.

How are the 2w buggy hybrids (green) compared to the DD's? And is there an ETA for the 2w buggy 3d's and hybrids? They are the exact type of tire im looking for :

Performance wise it doesn't matter, but if you want to be able to see the dots on the gear indicating the tooth count, then you must put in on with the dots facing out.

They have more forward traction and last twice as long, slightly less side-bite. Both tires are now in stock and shipping.

I bought a new Jconcepts pit mat last weekend and noticed it has a flat spot where the foam bumps have been shaved/sanded off, must have been during the manufacturing process. It's right in the middle of the top, anywhere else and i wouldn't ask. Any chance of a replacement? Thanks

KUDOS to LaVerne at JConcepts. Earlier I posted my issue with 12mm front hub adapters with a stripped screw. I emailed the company to see if I could get longer screws. Within two hours LaVerne emailed me, asked for me to email her the receipt and a mailing address. Three days later I have a new set of hubs. GREAT SERVICE. (PS: ship longer screws with the hubs .

+2...Sent me a new set as well. I bought 2mm x 6mm bolts for my new ones (QTY:4 for $2) and they work great! Not to long that they stick out but are long enough for more threads so they don't strip out.
