I'm not really sure what Rich captured on film, but I'm sure he is putting something together soon.

wow i did not think the 3D were an outside tire. Gonna add those to my list did you ever try the black jacket i know they came out last year just as my season ended.
I really like 3D's on SCT.

Black Jackets were designed for hard packed slippery conditions and provide great traction, but won't last long if you run them on med/high bite conditions (they will be very fast though).

The DD's for truggy is a very old tire and still works well, but the newer Hybrids are so far more advanced with bigger wheels

Will the silencer body be made for the Losi 2.0?

Pink I would imagine so moving forward, the B5 was the first 1/10 scale vehicle it was released for and started the line into 1/10 scale bodies.

I am running the 6.5 high clearance on my B4.2. I am running stock class on a tight technical indoor track. Should I be cutting the wing down low in the back, or do I want to leave it up high? I don't really understand what difference it will make.

Guys running stock buggy will take almost all of the lip off to keep speed on the straight of a bigger track.
Mod motors don't have that issue.
It will affect flight and mid to high speed handling, if you are looking for more rear end bite, leave more on.

Good way to test is leave one wing with most of the wing and cut a majority out of the other. What works best for you?

You probably want to cut it down. But its track and drive style dependent. I would suggest try both and see what you like.

I am having trouble installing front B4.1 hexes. I have the AE conversion (axles and caster blocks) and I'm using the black roll pin. The front hexes won't clamp the pin/axle even when tightening down the screw maximum. Am I missing something?

Thank you.

Thats stinks i guess you guys have to many tires for SC anyways. But i think they would be a great tire for dry and moister dirt !

DDs on SCT work pretty well on Dry dirt though intill you get out of the grove into the loose crap lol.

I always thought about using the 3d tires for dry dirt il just get them to try out.

Question about the 3356 associated SC hex wheel. Do the hazard inserts fit that wheel? On the Jcon website it looks like the inserts only fit the losi wheel? But they look the same?

been reading the bag that the J concepts tires come in. was wondering about the compounds where it says the temperature like 76 to 90 degrees for this compound my question is would that be the track temperature that the tire is running on or the outside air temperature. thanks for the info

I would imagine that would be track temperature. Air temp will effect track temp, but shouldn't effect the tire. Atleast not as noticebly as track temp will.
