Default New 60mm dirt webs with dirt tech inserts

Just received golds and ready to glue. Dirt Tech inserts feel pretty hard. Will be running on a high bite indoor track (sdrc new clay). Any suggestions on preparing the inserts before I glue............or should I just glue em up and see what happens.

They do break in after a few runs.

You can trim the center bars out if you prefer a bit softer insert/flatter tire profile. But for high grip I'd just run em

Default New to JCONCEPTS 1/10 buggy tires

Just bought a full set of gold dirt weds and noticed that they came with open cell foams. I think I'll mount them with the open cells for a set of super grip tires. I think that's the purpose of supplying o/c verse c/c. The foams fit nicely without trimming. Are you suppose to trim the foams? Would anyone suggest getting closed cells instead of the white foams? I run on indoor clay that sometimes drys out and gets slippery.

I ran my first set this weekend with PL blue closed cell foams. Absolutly love them. Plenty of side bite ( I traction rolled a couple times) and tons of forward ( ran wheelies down the front stretch).

I mounted one with closed and 1 with open and compaired them side by side. The closed had a more round look while the open were nice and flat. I chose to go with the round as the track was pretty dusty.

It was told to me to use open on smooth tracks and closed on beat up, blown out tracks. Are track is 60/40 blown to smooth.

As far as trimming, you can to make the tire sit more round. Just one more tuning aid in a long list of things you could try. I never have....

Needless to say, after payday, I am buying about 7 sets....

What are the differences and different uses for multiple super soft compounds?

Black, green and silver all offer super or mega soft compounds? And when would you use golds over one of the super soft options?

2wd 17.5 buggy, I have been running Pressure points in black and dirt webs in Black or green. So far I have liked the pressure points the best. But we recently just redid the track and it is pretty wet and soft right now so traction is limited. With pressure points well broken in and using blue sticky kicks I have good forward bite but side bit is non existent. Anybody have any suggestions? My buggy is pretty light, right around 1500 grams, I do not want to weigh it down too much because the chassis is pretty dialed right now but I need some side bite.

I prefer cutting the inner bars off the rear 60mm inserts.

The RC8.2e is longer; you could probably space the rear mount 2mm forward and it should work.

Doubt it will fit well. The B5M protector has been upgraded since the C4.2 one and has a much thicker, more durable material.

Black/Green/Blue are of the same rubber family. They are normally run on med/hard packed, drier, dusty tracks. Gold/Silver are from a completely different rubber family and are mostly used on hard packed, cool, wet/damp clay tracks.

Sounds like gold/silver is what I need then. Thanks.

LW and WD are banned for sauces at our track. Sticky kicks and SXT.30 are all we can use. I have been finding that SK green works better than blue in wet conditions.

I actually think (my personal opinion) WD is one of the main ingredients for Sticky Kicks, so that seems like a great choice....LOL
