If youve gotten some of our tires/wheels already, could you shoot me a quick email with your impressions?

Thanks

It'd be great if the rims could be made for Losi fronts, too. My car would look sweet if that could be done.

Just swap out for B44 hexes(a good option regardless of which wheels) and viola!

So does JConcepts have much of a factory team with many drivers appearing to go to the new AE car?

I know i've broken the top plate, and that most likely its do to my driving, but i wonder if its possible to make some Top plates where the holes that mount the front top plate to the center spur gear aren't counter-sunk?

Its How much different are the AE top plate vs the rear, and why are the rear plates on the AE breaking?

There are many drivers still running the car, and quite a few who have switched to the AE car are more than happy to help with ours.

We really havent expirienced many (extremely rare) failures of the top decks. We barely sell them to be honest. Making a new top deck would be a considerable expense, which (on the whole) doesnt seem to be necessary.

I cant speak to the AE breakages other than saying...you always hear the bad online and not the thousand guys who arent breaking them.

Default Dyeing a different color

Hey Andy,

I just got the new Jconcepts rims for my B44 (Sweet!!) But I was wondering if these rims will take dyeing them red, Blue, Orange, Black?

I have heard they dont take dye that well and will warp.

I really dont want to mess them up by taking a chance.

Thanks

I havent actually played with that yet. I know RIT dye will dye just about anything though. I'll ask around and see if I can get an answer tomorrow.

Sweet, perhaps you could post a little parts list (either here or in the RB5 thread)?
