curious as well as here we are not allowed to run hardpin rear tires for carpet, so we commonly use clay compound slicks or people use other clay compound tires and wear them down.

These look like they could be a good option with some wisps of tread.

In 2016 JConcepts Indoor National Finals drivers are using JConcepts new slick called the Octacon. Can we get some more info?
It's a 2.2 tire and most likely a couple months away from full production. They ran the first samples at the INS finals.

Any thoughts on this tire for those of us who run slicks now on carpet due to rules? would this be a good option?

Unfortunately we haven't run them on carpet yet, but I would think they should be pretty good. When we receive more samples, we will have one of our team drivers test them on carpet ASAP .

when we had a track that had this same rule i found that slicked out green dirtwebs were the best tire and provided the most consistent laps from start to finish. Anything else that we used would fall off toward mid to end of the run because we were required to use sxt 3.0 and they would start to gum up too much.

Default 60mm Wheels and Tires

I notice that the new Space Bars do not come in the 60mm size. Everything new from many manufactures seem to be 2.2 only. Is 60mm style being phased out for 10th scale?

I'd love to see a JConcepts body for the 22-4 2.0 and I know I'm not the only one.

Isn't the original Finnisher shell a straight fit?

The 22-4 Silencer is a direct fit on either the original or the 2.0

Nothing in the plans right now, but possibly later next year.
