It is a front and rear kit.

just me or does that look like a taller pressurepoint? that would be a dialed tire around here.
Just a standard Pressure Point with some really sticky dirt.

PW,

Is the pivot blocks going to be the front and rear? Or just the rear? Also, a price? Thank you.
It's a front and rear that narrows the rear hinge-pin width. I will have to check on price.

What are some recommendations for tire additives? There are so many out there and I'm pretty new to the whole indoor clay racing scene. I do 95% or my racing outdoors where the tire sauce isn't really a big deal. Whats a good place to start? I've heard good and bad about just about every brand out there so I don't know what to believe.

It's all track sensitive. Nobody on here can really give you good advice unless they race at the same track. What works at my track my not work at yours. Best advice is to go to your local track and ask the fast guys. Then just stick with that no matter what you might read about it

We make our own for one of the local indoor tracks that we used to primarily race at. We thought it would only be good there, went to the regionals, and it was the only sauce working at a different track. Now with our outdoor track picking up, we are using it again once the track warms up, but using just basic good ole wd-40 and black compound JC tires went it is cold and damp.

The point behind this post, is that anything can work anywhere, first you have to have the right tire. All any additive really does is soften the rubber to help the tire get up to temp quicker.

(I did a search and came up with nothing, so...)

I finally was able to get the new 'Black' Bar Codes for my stadium truck... The LHS didn't have any of the JConcepts #3205-1 inserts (and neither did their distributor, and JConcepts shows "out of stock"), so I test fitted closed cell inserts from ProLine and AKA... The red AKA inserts seemed(?) to over-fill the tire, causing too rounded a profile. The blue ProLine inserts were "close", but did under fill the tire, but since I wanted to use the tires last weekend, I used them. That now seems to have been a poor choice, since the tires hooked up great in terms of forward bite, and worked most of the time in terms of side bite, but were EXTREMELY unpredictable in the corners. It appears that the 'Black' Bar Codes are slightly "bigger" than 'blue' or 'green' because I can use ProLine inserts with those compounds without problems, but the 'Black' tires are not "filled" by these inserts and in the turns, they hook up great, then suddenly (and unpredictably), the tire will roll under, causing the truck to snap loose... Very hard to drive... Even worse, the tires "work" where the traction is not as good, but snap loose where the track is the most "tacky"...

Given the lack of JC inserts, what are other people using...?

PS: in the buggy 'Black' Bar Codes, AKA inserts seem to be perfect. At our local indoor track, the stock JConcepts white foam is too soft for use in the rear tires (major roll-under in the turns), so I need to find a good closed-cell insert...

The only reason I asked about the sway bars is because the jconcepts website only shows pics of the front and not the rear.

My question is, where did you get Black compound barcodes for stadium truck? Last time I checked JC doesn't make them.

Are there any plans to make the " Silent Speed " spur gears for the new 22 HD slipper pad design?

The current Finnisher body has lines for mid motor; nothing mid-motor specific at the moment.

Most likely just an oversight on our part.

I was thinking the same thing; someone must have a nice hook-up

I honestly didn't even realize they changed; we will have to look into it. So no plans at the moment
