How does the JConcepts Firm insert compare to the Trinity Bomb 1 Firm(Blue) insert?

pm sent.

CraigX-We aimed for the grey inserts, as they seem to be the industry standard.

Yes Kyosho wheels would be killer front and rear..... i would do the pro-line rear conversion but i didnt have a huge tire lot to do it and the kyo wheels i think are easy to come by...... hope to have some spoked soon

Thanks again guys..
Nice Tyres. I ran the Goose Bumps and the Cross Hairs this past weekend and they were great.
The track was VERY dry, loose and bumpy broken clay surface. Both tyres hooked up well with the goose bumps being my pick. Nice turn in and good balance of side and forward bite. I ran back to back testing with Bow Ties, the JC tyres were much more consistant and made the car predictable to drive on the bombed out track. The Bow Ties had more initial turn in then the rear was loose and harder to catch. Interestingly the BT's also had more tendancy to lift the inside wheels when catching a rut in a corner, the JC tyres didn't.

Good work JC.

Ray, although I don't support buying from online shops, Tower says they will be in early Janurary.


Will the BJ4 body fit the B44? If not will you have one soon?
