Any plans for any new SCT tires for next year? Possibly some hybrids or stackers? Those are my two favorite buggy treads and they would be a great addition to your SCT selection

Not at the moment.

Apparently we did get a small batch of them in; nice find

Since the JConcepts inserts are out of stock (I almost had some on ebay, but the deal went bust) - what inserts do you recommend for a winter indoor medium to high bite track..?

Long time lurker here, but i did buy the shock tower and received it.

When I saw this offered for sale, I bought it so fast I didn't notice that there are only two holes for shock mounting positions. I thought I wasted my money, but the only hole that has been eliminated is the outer most hole. You still have the inner most hole and middle hole which is labeled #1 and #2 on the setup sheets.

The fit is excellent just like any other jconcepts part I have purchased. I have not run my car with this yet, so I can't comment on the durability.

I am curious to know the how the new ballstud location compares to the old. The jconcepts tower has the ballstud mounted horizontally(as opposed to vertically on the stock tower).
Is the lowest hole on the jconcepts tower = no washers under the ball stud on the stock tower?
I assume the middle hole on the jconcepts tower = one washer under the ball stud on the stock tower?
And the upper hole on the jconcepts tower = two washers under the ball stud on the stock tower?

It looks well-machined and clean like all JC stuff.

It weighs 9.4g vs the AE carbon tower at 10g.

Erik, I believe paul said at RRW a couple a weeks ago they are looking into wheels and bodies. Not sure if that means, "Shut up brandon we are working on it...." OR "I can't release any information at this time...."

I think currently those might be your only 2 choices (aka/PL) until we get more 3205's. There's an old trick I've used in my touring car days when testing inserts; if an insert was slightly under sized, I would wrap the od of the wheel with strap-tape and that would take out the extra gap .

The upper hole is equal to stock with a 2mm shim; then the holes go down in 1.5mm increments. Unfortunately we couldn't do 1mm increments because the holes overlap to much.

Not at the moment, but looking into it.

Default JConcepts F250 super duty

Here is a pic of my latest and greatest, this body is the most durable body I have run to date. Just picked this one up cause it was time for a paint change, pretty slick if I do say so.

got kind of a problem. and I'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong. I'm trying to install the jconcepts carbon steering rack on my b4.2 and when i finished putting it together it had tons of slop, about .5mm from the bell crack to rack. what can i be doing wrong it looks like a straight forward install?

I have an off brand car, DHK Raz-r. I bought a set of rims and a set of gladiators. Got home glued them up, put them on and of course they do not fit. Guess the LHS does not really know what they sell. Never had that happen .

The rear will fit but the fronts do not have enough off set. It is not much, they are about 3/16" less then the stock rims.

I would like to get another set that does fit. Is there any way to find out what fits?

Thanks.

Buzz.

So I am wondering if I order the hazards for my vintage rc10...can I run any newer 2.2" std buggy tires? Front and rear.
I have been using the wheels from a company across the pond to run barcodes front and rear on my original axles.
And if so, which part numbers are the wheels I would need?
Thanks in advance
