dye is a straight mess. I like JC wheels but I was sick of looking like everyone else and tried the DE's. They only look better cuz of the color.

I wish u guys would make them in a gloss black. but I get it.. not enough people asking for it which surprises me.

yep, yellow is best for night or low light. A candy cane wheel would be cool, with yellow and a contrasting color, you could see the spin I would imagine. I might try putting something on my wheel like a bright sticker to see the effect next night race.

The motor plate for the AE cars that was just released is that lighter than the AVID vented plate or the AE FT plate? Can you guys think about making a black front hinge pin brace, Black rear hubs, black shock collars and bottom(thin that holds the O-ring). Thank you.

My Avid plate just ripped out all the threads for all 4 screws and they are sending me a new one and have supplied me with a return envelope so they can examine the part to find the cause, though as I told them, I'm pretty sure I know why it failed the way it did.

So why do you think it failed?

How many ribbed cups does one kit of ballcups come with?
Any chance the the new ballcups will come in yellow?
I have been wanting to pick up a set but for now I am using the older JC ballcups because they are yellow...

Spray simple green into the wheel, scrub with a medium Scotch brite pad and then wipe off with a paper towel. Cleans them up really nicely. Any degreaser will work too.
