I don't have one, but will check into it.

Is there ever going to be a softer or medium Short Course Insert to give tuning options for low traction tracks?

Also Ive had some hazard wheels latly coming out of the pack warped and buckled pretty bad so has my friend also
The stock inserts are medium; nothing softer in the works.

We haven't seen this; please contact us directly so that we can take care of the issue ASAP.

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?
Still no ETA on the sway-bar kits, a new mold had to be remade .

No Bro Codes for SCT right now.

ETA on the T4.1 12mm hex conversion?
In production now, not sure when they will ship.

Paul,

Can you explain when Barcodes in the Gold compound would be the tire of choice? Seems like at local track most people will use "Green" then jump to "Blue" if traction changes. No one seems to really utilize "Golds".

Is that more of a high traction/groove type compound? I see it listed for FT drivers at large events often. Just wondering because the compounds are listed as "soft" and "indoor soft".

Thanks.

Gold is a blue grooved, high temp (higher than here) west coast thing. I haven't found a use for them on the east.

top...You are thinking of Orange. Gold is an indoor compound for wet clay tracks.

You're right, but I haven't found a track where gold works. The larger indoor tracks around here (RC Excitement and Island Raceway and Hobby) usually run blues.

Gold compound is for indoor wet/packed/sticky clay surfaces. Green and Blue Bar Codes are for drier/hard packed surfaces that may or may not have dust.

Default tire prep

has anyone tried preping there tires with anything? i have raced dirt oval gokarts for 20 years now and it is huge in that racing world. i club race at the hobbytown hobbyplex in omaha nebraska, and i have a prep that works pretty good with jc tires to cut through the slime on a hard wet track; and another prep for a dry slick to cut through the dust and wear the tires but not tear or grain them. just thought id see what kind of reply's i could get here. one of the chemicals im using i have sold for $300 a gallon to other karters, i take tires pretty seriously lol

Yes; tire sauce is a huge part of r/c racing, but it mostly pertains to indoor racing. There are dozens of purpose made tires sauces for r/c as well as plenty of home brewed ones. 2 or 3 stand out above the rest as the others come and go, but racers are always looking for that next magic sauce .
