TAKE MY MONEY!!!

Amazing tire! Great job BK and JC. And I'm glad to see retailers already dropping their selling prices. Will be super happy to see them back in stock.

Thanks,
Jesse

Summertime temps 87 (again) in Florida, Rear Green DDs not the best and fell apart on a calcium treated outdoor clay track. What's a good tire to churn out practice laps without breaking the wallet? I would assume the Orange compound with the heat, bar codes, 3D's , Dirt Webs?

Stick with a groovy in a firmer compound or match the front to the rear choice?

Thanks

Default Jconcepts tire/foam question

Hello. I hope this isn't a silly question. I'm fairly new to rc. Just picked up some front and rear tires for my 4wd buggy. The foams that came with the tires are the same width front and rear yet the front tires are narrower. Do people usually just stuff them in? Or do they cut the front foams to match the width of the tires?

The J concepts thread is about 15 threads down...Read the last 3-4 pages.
But yes they are cutting them.

For 2wd front, the front foam is too small. You need to use the open cell foam out of the rear tires and cut about 1/4 off of it. It will seem like it doesn't want to fit but you just have to work it in there. It will go.
As far as 4wd fronts, they really need closed cell foams
I'm curious to know more on the 4wd buggy inserts. Why do you say they need closed cell? Will that depend on track conditions? As for the rear, do most use the open cell that come with the tires ( DD's)?

I'm no expert, but from what I understand is that "open cell" inserts aren't as firm and will allow the tyre to fold over on itself around sharp turns. There is a balance as too firm won't allow your tyres to "conform" on a bumpy track (different inserts for different track conditions).

I suggest Rips in green compound.

We will offer the new Bullet wheels for the 22-4, but no ETA yet.
