Can we get narrow C4.2 rear pivots like Steven is running made? If not are the bj4 rear pivots the same pin width between axles as b4? If so I can get those to work on the c4. Thanks.

Just a copy of the ghea pivot in blue would deem cheap and all the leg works done. Just send em to china and get them children to work!

Thank you and the wheels/tires are new JConcepts parts coming out soon .

I bought three Jconcepts steering racks for my 3 2wd associated vehicles. All three have ridiculous slop after only a couple runs. Also I bought three sets of the new ball cups. The longer straight head cups pop off too easily when attempting to adjust camber. I am disappointed in these products. I anticipated them to be products that would enhance my cars. Instead I am looking for an alternative. I think I am going to send these back to JCONCEPTS for exchange for something else.
My steering rack stayed very tight for about a month, but it did loosen up over time. I just removed the rack, cleaned everything and put a thin layer of CA to seal the graphite where the bearing press-fits into the rack. Now its really tight and holding up well.

With the new ball-cups being made out of such a hard material, its really important to pre-thread them. I personally drill them out with a 3/32 bit and then thread them on with a little grease. I've been on the same set of ball-cups for 4 months now and still feel good (I use the rounded ones).

We are already working on them and will work well with our rear bulkhead and tower. When you narrow the hinge-pins, you must also narrow the inner camber link to match.

Nothing yet.

Two Questions:

1) On the B44.2 Aluminum Steering Rack, the ackerman adjustment has three holes. The Middle hole is Stock Forward? Or Stock Rear?

2) When is the B4 Alum Front Suspension Brace in Black expected to be in stock?

Middle/back is stock with the forward hole being the new option hole.

I will have to check on the ETA for the black hinge-pin brace.

Paul,

I vote gold barcodes for vintage as well, for us indoor clay types. I saw a sneak peek at some of the cf goodies you at JC are working on, and I'm excited. Now I just have to make one of my many vintage cars running again. Any plans for future vintage re re parts or possibly updates on other vintage products, like a 10t shell or other vintage buggy shells?

We have to take one step at a time and see how far AE takes things. Right now we only plan to have parts for the RC10, but who knows what AE might have up their sleeves.

I often run buggy double d rears (in green) that I narrow up to be fronts. They work really well, but require a level of work to cut/glue them that I would describe as "unfun".

Do you have any suggestions for alternates?

We do the same thing, but we only ever really need to do it a couple times a year. We do have them on the list to make production, but it always seems to get pushed back for something else.

I don't think so; scheduling didn't work out for us. I've been told there will be some team drivers there though.

While waiting for JC to release them, I use dd's for 4wd front. They are a few cents cheaper & give you the same thing after cutting them down. Plus, if nobody cares & you get lazy one day you can just glue them up with out cutting down.
