I know people say that I find negative crap about most everything, which is true. But i will say that gluing up the JC clay smoothies was nice. The bead rested nicely on the wheel and didnt require pushing, prodding and extra hands like the proline or aka clay tires for 2.4/60mm. The sidewalls seem a little stiffer than the primes also. I did the AKA trick to glue the rear foams onto the wheel to reduce the "shifting" of the foam. Hoping this helps with sidewall tearing.

Well that's good to hear. We have been gluing inserts to the wheels for SCT and Truggy for years and it does work well. I have also done it with Smoothies and it does seem to help stabilize the tire and reduce ripping.

Yeah, I race at SRS, so as you know, we kinda have a lot of traction. Also, so some reason, the JC front tire and wheel, is 24g lighter than my prime 2.4 and wheel...... rears were about the same smoothies were 4g lighter. Will be interesting to see how that can handles without the extra 24g of weight in the front


Also, Paul. What tire conditioners work well on the smoothies? I typically use Diesel or Liquide Wrench on the primes. Mostly, Diesel.

Wow, that's a big difference. Guess you will need the front wing...LOL...

I think all the gold/clay compounds react about the same, so I would stick to your normal tire conditioners. Just and FYI...We have a super high bite track in FL that uses slicks, but it's a dry/sealed surface (glue) and SXT 3.0 is the sauce of choice. Plus the SXT 3.0 is odorless, so that is a huge bonus

Have you tried RC1 for tire sauce? works really well and doesn't thrash your tires up like liquid wrench does.

I think it has a lot to do with the rim themselves.

Default Gold compound dirt webs for 1/10 truck

Is September a realistic date for the 1/10 truck dirt webs in Gold (a.k.a. Clay) compound? They've been on inter-galactic back-order since the dawn of time and indoor season for the North East is right around the corner .
