There is a transitional phase where some of the truck tires come with blue inserts, but Dirt Techs will be the standard as the blue inserts cycle through.

Which compound and tread pattern would you guys recommend for a dusty dirt track, that never really gets a clean line on it?


We've tended to find that a Proline Caliber or Holeshot works ok, but am curious if a Jconcepts tire might be better option.

Not sure what vehicle you're referring to, but on dry and dusty tracks I'd pick:

1/10 Buggy: Splitters or Flipouts, depending on moisture level (Flipouts when it's not quite as dry) as well as Double Dees.

SC: Double Dees and Subcultures.

Thanks, should have mentioned it's for 1/10 2wd buggy, am fine with tire choice on grass or astro but not a clue with dirt!!

Thanks for the responses. I'm opting for the bake off method.

Which foams (AKA, PL or JC) would be best suited for 2WD buggy on a bumpy indoor clay/dirt mix track? I run PL M4 Prime slicks with the closed cells that came with the tires. I'm far from an expert driver / tech - I'm not the kind of guy who notices the slightest changes to set-ups and tweaks.

The Primes with the stock inserts fell much firmer than the JC Barcodes with open cells. They fell better to me as far as how much the tire does not compress in my hands when I squeeze them. Any tire & foam insight is much appreciated.

Thanks again.

If its soft and dusty, Flip Outs are best.
If its hard based but dusty, also try 3Ds.

Compound: Green is best if its damp or soft. If its hard based, try Blue.

FWIW I created a tyre chart for our tracks down here in Australia which may be of interest:

Ask Ray Munday - JConcepts, Reedy, Associated Aussie Support Thread

Good luck!

Ray

Does anyone know the length of the fin turnbuckles for the b4/b5? Thinking of putting them on a different car and what to make sure they would work.

They haven't officially been announced yet, but it should be any day now. You can see a sneak peek of them in Jason's B5 video on our website - Click Here

When do you expect the B5M/T5M rear ballstud mount to be released, also curious about release dates for the camber and ride height gauges?
