Can't wait to test your new Astro tires! With Schumacher ditching their standard Minipins in favor of the Minipin2, I'll have to adjust to new tires anyway. Who knows, maybe there is a JConcepts/EOS partnership on the horizon...
We do have plans for my truck bodies, but not sure on styling yet.

How soon until the HF2 is released?
I would say the end of this month.

Default 1/8 Buggy Tires

When would I run hybrids vs black jackets on a 1/8 buggy? I ran black jackets at Wicked and loved the way they performed until the third round - car felt a little loose. After the heat, I discovered I broke some pins off on a couple of the tires. I'm thinking if hybrids will work in the exact same conditions as the black jackets, I should get them instead. The hydrids lug appears to be a little bit bigger.

Do you have an ETA on the servo mount that was shown on Jason's honeycomb B5M the other day? Can't wait to get my T5M all black!

The Black Jackets were designed for hard packed, slippery surfaces. As the surface begins to build a groove and traction goes up, then you need to switch to a tire that has more pins and closer together, like the Hybrid.

General rule of thumb for any tire:
- Less pins spaced further apart = Maximum traction/less durability/less stability (great for low bite conditions)
- More pins spaced closer together = Slightly less traction/more durability/more stability (great for med/high bite conditions)

I believe they are in production now and should have them soon

It fits pretty well if you use the inner or middle shock locations.
