Hope not. I got tired of sanding down 2.2 dirtwebs so I had to switch brands. Why not make them in Black Compound instead of Green? Greens work once
you put about 30 packs through the car.
Use Liquid Wrench (yellow cap). makes any tire work

Double Dees are most similar in terms of design. However usually I find the 3D works better on our hard packed / dusty surface tracks during the summer, whereas the Double Dee tends to work better during winter when the track has a little more moisture.

Cheers Ray, I've used the 3D on my 2wd and do prefer it. I'll stick with them and I'll try the double Dee as the weather cools. I noticed though that a 4wd front is not available for the 3D. I take it the double Dee would be the tyre of choice for 4wd, moving to a barcode with less dust. Where does the Hybrid tyre fit in?

How long of a wait for gold dirt webs for SC and Buggy? I know they are very popular and always seem to be on back order. I have had to go to a different company because of it. Hopefully you guys will order enough this go around so they stay in stock

AKA is no better. Proline seems to be the only with tires in stock

for 4WD Buggy the 3D's are the way to go when the track is soft, perhaps a bit mushy. The outside of the tread digs in better than DD's but once the track dries up, I find DD's perform better. I've also found that when & whereDD's are great, Splitters will work even better!

The best combo I've run on any of my Wheelers is a DD front (Black or Green) and Splitter rears (Black or Green). This tends to work on any track I've been to.

Hope this helps.

Do the 3d's come in a 4wd front? I don't think they do.

I thought it best to keep the same tyres front & back. Not to mix them up, as you would get different traction levels.

So where do these splitters & hybrids sit? Are they between the DD's & flipouts. Or heading more towards the 3D from a DD? Cheers

Is there any plan to make reflex tires for ST?

We normally use holeshots or DD on our hard packed outdoor clay track; however, I tried a pair of reflex tires f/r on my B5M during our second heat and I was on rails. The track was dry and low dust.

So, I figured pick up some dirt webs or brocodes, etc. in green compound and some in gold just in case with some dirt tech inserts. Do I sound like I am on the right track, especially in compound comparison?

For outdoors, it can get VERY LOOSE HERE, old school dirt conditions so got blockades and step pins in the box. However, when it does dry a bit, tires like Losi's old IFMAR Pins work quite well. I am wondering if the flip outs would do the same thing?
Sounds like you are on the right track.

Yes; Flipouts would be similar to IFMAR Pins.

No plans at this time.

We received buggy Gold Dirt Webs last week and they are currently being shipped to all Dist/Hobby shops right now; SCT webs are in production now. It's not about ordering enough or not, it's about the vendors only being able to produce X amount of rubber.

There have been some updates to the alloy parts and this has delayed the projects.

No firm ETA, but hopefully end of next month.
