Any plans to include the dirt tech foam with the 1/10 scale tires?
Yes, but no ETA. Pin/knob tires will continue to use white foam.

how do the B5 and tlr22 rear 60mm wheels differ. Different offset or just a thicker wheel hub for the longer 22 axles?

They are the newer 60mm or 2.4" wheels, AKA started it with the EVO line, Pro-line has the VTR and now JConcepts has the 60mm. Just need to make sure you order the appropriate tires.

The offset and wheel hub thickness is the same; the only difference is the outer face/dish for aesthetic purposes.

I will have to check; we have had 2 big shipments come and go over the last month or so.

Paul, quit it with this customer support and get back to whipping those poor souls at the tire machine.

I would like to report that I glued up some Smoothies with last Friday. After a quick scuffing I slapped them on and was right on regular lap time from the get go even with the 30 degree temperature drop we experienced. Just need to make some different adjustments for my driving style and these things are really going to fly. Thanks JConcepts Team!

ps.. hurry up with smoothies and the 60mm wheels. I believe we were sold out of everything by friday night.

What I heard was soon, but that has been a while ago.

I'm using LW Lubricating. They have been watering the track ever since that night so I've stayed with the dirtwebs. I have some barcodes if the track dries out again. The dirtwebs are hooked up when the track is wet. Outdoor track with a clay dirt surface. I'm carrying the front tires down the front straight with a MM rb6.

We have never tried it, but I have seen some racers saying that they have tried it. It has a lot of air-gap and makes everything feel very soft, not sure how it will handle though.

Paul, I assume the proline VTR and AKA Avo tires will work on the 60mm wheels without issue? I am just hoping that AKA, JC, AE and Proline are all using a standard for these new wheels. I ordered some of the new JC 60mm wheels, but I am unsure if I will run the new smoothies or not.
