Soo what do the 2wd dirtweb fronts offer over the barcodes? Also pressure points for the rear compared to barcodes? Im thinking from the look pressure pts will free up the rear?

Dirt web fronts offer a little more steering than barcodes. I ran barcode fronts with pressure point rears and loved the combo. This was at SCRC the home for this years nationals. Super high grip, indoor, clay track.

Im running at ocrc "reedy race track" most 2wd guys are on ions typos and barcodes. Im partial to concepts bc they last longer. So sounds like i should invest in some pressure pts.

Barcodes seem to wear in the middle faster than the pressure points, to me!

I found Barcodes to offer a tad more steering, but more aggressive and seemed to randomly gain and loose traction throughout the radius of the turn. Faster, but harder to drive, and less consistent. Painfully slow to break in them though lol.

With Dirtweb fronts, I found they have a TAD less steering, but overall MUCH smoother and easier to drive, and much more consistent lap to lap. More consistent traction and steering throughout the radius of the turn. A lot faster break-in.

But that's just my opinion, they're certainly worth a try if you've got the extra cash.

I like them in the front, and V1 barcode in the rear, both gold compound. 3/4 rear front foam, AKA red rear. (going to try JConcepts medium foams rear next.)

Erik, the B4.2 is only 3mm wider on each side, so I would assume the printed one would work, also they have the clear that is uncut that you could trim to fit.

You can also try splitters, they are amazing as well.

More Dirt Webs are scheduled for next week, but will still be limited quantities. OCRC is normally on top of ordering new product .

No...The gold compound will shrink and harden in acetone.

It's also on the list, but has been pushed back. Maybe a summer release.
