Sucks about the switch, but glad the tire suggestions worked out!

The V1s on indoor tracks actually produce more sidebite then the V2s. At least that has been my understanding and I am fairly sure that is what Paul has said in this thread in the past.
Yes...I prefer V1's indoor and outdoor on the east coast style tracks because we almost always have some dust/sand to contend with even on grooved surfaces. West Coast outdoor tracks certainly like the V2's .

Paul, I have to ask really and Really?

I just wonder why it was decided to make bodies for cars not even directly available in the U.S., yet nothing for for the TRF201? I understand that the U.S. is not the only market, but I guarantee that Tamiya has sold more TRF201s world wide than Yokomo and Centro have sold Bmax2s and C4.1s combined. Why nothing for the Tamiyas?

It could be possible that the MFG threw some $ to JCon to manufacture bodies on their behalf for the Yok and Centro. If tamiya wanted to throw some money to JCon i am sure they would mfg a body.

Without getting into to many details; basically a distributor/manufacture commits to X amount so that costs are covered. We have made bodies for cars like the 201 in the past and sold a total of 50 bodies worldwide

Are there any plans to modify or change the illuzion highflow SCT body to fit the 22sct (they made the posts wider in the rear)? The current body post fall right on the "roll cage" section of the body. I really miss my durable JConcepts bodys.

Have any of your team drivers tried to mod one to fit?

Ah, I see. Thanks for the bit of insight into how things work. I guess if the smaller companies don't have the ability to mold their own body, going through JConcepts would be a good idea. I hope my post didn't come off in the wrong way.

It's already been updated; you will see a notch in the roll-bar where the post goes along with a dimple . However, we don't have control over retailers inventory (old vs new).

+1

I have a friend that makes buggy Pressure Points from SC tires. Amazing tire to drive on. If you can stay in the groove, they are much faster than Bar Codes.

Definitely can't wait for a production tire.

I was wondering is there an ETA on the anti-roll kit for the Associated SC10? and will JConcepts be making the Bro codes for the SCT as well?
