It has already been discussed, it is going to use zero offset wheels.
I spoke with Team Associated and the truck is the same width as the SC10, which means you will still need the +3 Hazards to make it max width (ROAR).

Went with 3 holes per rib and still plenty firm. Wondering if I should cut down ribs to soften more. Feel free to chime in if you have already been thru this process. Will not glue until tomorrow.

DO NOT cut the truck foams!!! They will be way too small! I've already done it. Just mount em with the holes and run em. They will break in!

Default B5M Bodies

What are the different handling characteristics for the finisher and silencer?
Running a FL w/17.5 (if that matters)
Thanks

I personally think it's more mental then anything, but the Silencer is thought to be a little smoother and more locked in. The Finnisher is a little freer, more rotation.

PW - I haven't seen this question asked yet on the soon to be released SC5m, but do we know if the current line of JC SC bodies are a direct fit with the current body mount holes or have they been moved to accommodate the mid motor setup. Thanks in advance.

Good question; I don't know and will have to find out. We unfortunately don't have a kit yet to check body mount placement.

It's in discussion, but nothing yet.

Spoke with AE and they said the front mounts are the same, but unfortunately the rear mounts are further back compared to the SC10.2

Any thoughts on the current trend of 60mm tires and wheels? By that I mean do you perceive it as a tuning options or the next way all tires will be. No one can seem to agree so far but I've also noticed no new tires in 2.2. Any insight as the the direction paul?

I personally think it will continue to be a tuning option unfortunately. Truthfully it's not an option that was really needed, but now its here along with the added cost and confusion .

I sadly agree...just wish jcon would offer some of the newer tire patterns in 2.2
I know it's crazy cost but just a thought.
Thanks paul
