Depends on how you want your truck to handle. I drive on a very similar track to yours.

Personally I like Green JConcepts SubCultures up front with M3 Proline Snipers on the rear.

Very similar tread patters but the JConcepts tread is closer together where as the prolines are further apart. It allows me to initiate a turn and then slide through which is how I like my truck to handle.

I was running SubCultures all round but the rear end was skating around to much.

For those conditions, we run the Double Dee on the front.

The release will be in a few weeks. For the RB5, Im sure it will be like the Punisher, and fit just fine.

Both, the Barcodes in Green, and a full line of Pressure Points for truck will be available soon. Before the majority of indoor seasons begin this fall/winter.

With Proline announcing Holeshots for 2WD Buggy Fronts any chance of JConcepts releasing Double Dees for 2WD Buggy Front?

Depends on Track.

However on my 22 I run AKA Rebars on the front in Supersoft and JConcepts Double Dees on the rear in greem.

I hear that the new 3Ds just work on almost all tracks in my area. (South FL)

Should I get Green or Blue compound? (for 4X4 SC)

I would like a pretty decent tread life, but enough grip to be competitive.

Thanks!
-Venom

Also, any word on when the JC aluminum steering rack for AE 2WD cars will be released?

How about the 1/8 Punisher with Side Dams in Yellow?

Green will give you max traction, but blue might be the better option for 4x4 SCT on FL blue-groove tracks.

The new alloy steering and wing mounts are scheduled for September release at the JConcepts Clash.

No plans for yellow side dams as of right now.
