I'm loving the VTR/EVO wheels/tires! If we could get them for ST it would be sweet!

I'd just be happy with some dirt webs!

It hasn't been said yet, but it will happen first in the new patterns coming out at the end of the year (Diamond Bars, Reflex, Chasers, Remix) - Click Here

JConcepts, should you browse this thread - can you please start doing this with all tires? I have a mountain of open cell foam that I'll never use, such a huge waste.

It will happen, but unfortunately it's going to be a slow process.

They are going through production now, so hopefully sometime in Nov/Dec.

Are the silver compound going to come in anything other than buggy tires?

I have a RB6 mid motor 2WD buggy. I race on a small technical, indoor clay track with med-high traction that gets a dust layer throughout the heats.

Currently running Pro-line Scrubs up front that are way too aggressive for me -- oversteer. Rears will be DIRT WEBS in clay compound.

I need a little less steering in my front tires.

Will Bar Codes or Dirt Webs be less aggressive than Scrubs? I'm leaning towards trusty Bar Codes... I'd like to stay JConcepts for this combo.

Hell yeah, what are those, look sick!
Next gen Bar Codes for the 60mm wheel?
I can make out Rippits on the front tire, can't quite make out the rear sidewall.

Rears are Whippits and fronts are Rippits - You can watch Jason discuss these tires in his JConcepts Garage video for the B5M (chapter 9 of the vid). Click Here for video.

Nothing planned at this time, just buggy.

I think you are spot on with the trusty Bar Code front. That is our go to tire when we are looking for smooth/consistent steering. The Dirt Web is certainly more aggressive steering, but I can't compare to the scrub since I haven't ever run them.

That is the plan, but its a long process. Also keep in mind that "closed-cell" inserts are triple or more the price to manufacture .

Wow… $18.99 for 4 (four) 4mm wheel nuts?

This is not a new idea or product. They've been out for a long time now and for less. I'm an avid JConcepts supporter because you guys make excellent products but sometimes, some of your products feature pricing I think have to be type-o's.

That is the full retail price and they normally sell for $12. The JConcepts wheel nuts have been around for a few years now and are a fully machined aluminum wheel nut. Almost every other brand on the market is a cast/molded nut with or without the serrations cut into them. Most manufactures just buy bulk/mass produced nuts from a fastener supply manufacture and stick their label on them. We however wanted something unique and precision machined to set ours apart .

That is what is so great about this hobby; you can pick and choose almost anything and everything to fit your need or budget.


btw...All press releases have full retail pricing listed do to distribution; this is the case for all major manufactures.
