For the next time though, mark where your holes should be on the over spray film before you paint. Much easier to line it up while its clear and unpainted.

You can try putting a dab of grease on the top of the posts and place the body to mark where you should ream. It won't be perfect, measure to square up your holes.
Great tips. Thank you. One of my favorite quotes is experience is something you get a couple minutes after ya needed it.

Just hold off and I will confirm tomorrow.
No rush here. Thanks for the input. I hope to someday help others like you guys have me recently. Great hobby for my 8 year old and I.

22SCT mounting holes for the 0222:

Front - the center outside holes/dimples.
Rear - the lower outside holes/dimples where the roll-bar is notched.

So I just got some green Bro Codes and I'm wondering why one of the sidewall sides is shiny and the other side is dull? I noticed they are directional and the shiny side is opposite. One tire is shiny on the outside and the other is shiny on the inside. Is this a big deal?

I'm not really sure what causes this anomaly during the mold process, but I have run them like this without any side affects. If you have any issues, please contact us directly for help - [email protected]

Just saw the MBX7 eco body sneak peek on facebook. Can't wait to get one on my buggy. I need that one to complete the JConcepts trio on all my cars.

Ha Ha! So true!

Even if the body happens to have holes marked for my truck I still mark them before I paint. I have found that the holes are not usually spot on. One from the mounts being hammered on for months if their not new so that will throw it off and also the dimples may or not be exactly right for the truck... with any manufacturer. It only takes being off by a hair to make you have to oval one or more of the holes to fit.

Any plans for a new 1/10 buggy body? I'd like to see the silencer adapted to 1/10 scale. Especially the yokomo cars

Nothing planned short term. We normally try and doing something special for a big event and then carry it over the rest of the year. May something for Nationals would be cool .

C4.2 Tower/Bulkhead tip:

The stock Centro never took into consideration that flipping the rear arms around and having the shocks mounted on the back would need a longer shock because of the anti-squat (one less limiter). So JConcepts actually lowered the tower slightly so that the shock length would remain the same from the B4.2 (RM) to the C4.2 (MM).

I race at SCRC (2014 Nationals); its a big indoor track (orange Georgia clay) that is high-bite/blue grooved and really bumpy. I've attached my current setup for everyone to check out.

Installed JC Ball cups along with the JC AE Ball studs... wow. First time in 15 years I've ever had no-slop ball cups. Hope they break in a bit and stay this way.

Autocratic, Blue/green Barcodes, or M4/M3 suburbs. But I believe the Roar Nats are a Spec Tire, so if you are preparing to stock up for nats, I would wait.
