Are the dirtech inserts ever going to come with the tire, similar to the AKA inserts? Sucks buying tires and then having to buy an insert as well.

from what i understand the inserts will last longer then the tire. so then you have a gang of inserts left over. also there are alot of people that dont run on the track conditions that would benefit from closed cells. just my .02. correct me if im wrong

You are correct in the sense that foams do usually last longer than foams... But it would be nice if they at least offered the option like aka does. With aka you can buy tires only or tires/cc foam.

I bet it's only a matter of time tho before JC starts selling them together.

I run the Gold compound on a medium bite clay at TRCR and usually when the tires are done the foams arent worth saving at least with red AKA foams that we all have been running for along time.

Blacks are designed for cooler weather hard packed slick surfaces.

I would think green Bar Codes would be really good with some blue label Sticky Kicks sauce. We also have the new Dirt Webs coming out soon and they should be the ultimate indoor hard packed tire

I don't have an answer, but there have been discussions about CC inserts included.

They have been approved and ordered; so it should be really soon

I started another threaded before in bad seen this one so I figured id ask here as well.

I know the bj4 worlds edition buggy is no longer produced but I was wondering if there are any parts that are interchangeable w the b44 line of buggies.

Thanks

PW, what is the difference between goose bumps and flip outs on 4wd buggy front and rear? do you'll have an updated tire application guide?

The goosebump is a much taller pin.
