Yes, the Hi FLow body fits. I use it on my SCR. The wheels wells are a little off and none of the body mount dimple holes fit. If possible, make the body post holes before you paint it. Just have to take you time to make the body mount holes. I mounted mine so the front bumper fits inside the body.

Thanks Paul, can you tell me between the 3 I mentioned, which one is the closest to 90mm width?

I dont mind having to trim up the nose a bit, but I would like a snug fit around the chassis.

The RB6 and Centro are around the same; around 112+mm wide. None of our bodies will be snug if you're at 90mm.

I am looking to try out a thin, light SC body. Is the Raptor SC body with X-Flow a light body? Are there any JConcepts SC bodies that are .030 thick?

All of our SCT bodies are made from .050 material. Sometimes the tolerances can vary slightly and you may get a slightly thinner one, but only like .005 difference. A .030 SCT body would be paper thin on the sides and that's no exaggeration .

JC's new high flows are some of the lightest SCT bodies on the market today.

The bead on the truck bar codes is dumb. The top of the side of the bead is not flat where it rests against the outside edge of the wheel--looks like the bead is an "I" beam. I glue all my 1/10 scale tires on the side of the bead, not the bottom of the bead, making it very easy to slice open the bead at a 45 degree angle for re-foaming. The missing material also allows for the tire to be pressed down into the bead misaligned at the top as well as providing less ability to keep the tire sealed against the rim at the side, lending to collecting dirt between the tire and wheel even when the tire is still glued well further down the bead.

Definitely do not care for gluing these tires up or this carcas design.

Is boiling the tires off the best method to saving the tires from a bad wheel?

I prefer the boiling method as it doesn't stink up the house. However, I've found that it's necessary to "help" break the bead after ~30 minutes of boiling to use a pair of tongs or similar to push down at the contact of the bead and riim to get the tire to realse from the rim. (hope you understand what I'm trying to say).

IOW, just boiling away doesn't seem to completely break the tire from the rim, it needs a little assistance. Just don't use anything sharp or else you'll cut the tire.

Unfortunately I've never tried it; so maybe someone can chime in here.

I believe it's going to be 2166, but they are still delayed.

Depends on the surface; rounders have the most on clean, grooved surfaces. We use Rips 99% of the time when a ribbed tire is called for.
