Sorry if this has been asked before but I have just received some 4wd 1/10th Double Dee front tyres and i wanted to know if you need to cut the front foams down as it appears they are the same width as the rear foams.

You can stuff the entire foam into the tire if you like, but it does become a bit tight in there. I would reccomend cutting them down about 1/4", which makes them about perfect width wise.

Yeah, this is a tuning option. Sometimes more foam, sometimes less.. depending on the track conditions. If it was tire width, then you might have to buy foam like with other tires...

Thanks for that. In general what circumstances is more foam better in the front tyres?

Default Which Anti-Squat Are Which??

There are 0* and there are 2* anti-squat blocks for the BJ4-WE.
I have both of them but can't remember which are which...

The markings on the two sets I have are:
F03 and R03
F23 and R23

I am assuming the F/R03 are the 0* but I just want to make sure.

The 0 are indeed 0 degree antisquat.

A+ again for andy moore and jconcepts, i broke a wrench tip ordered a new one from amain and andy was able to tell me i might have ordered the old style and sent me out a new one for free of charge. Thats customer service at its finest and shows this company looks out for its customers.

Now all we need from andy is metric ballcups... heheheh

Yeah metric ballcups would be great. I would think the market for them is almost as large as for SAE cups, considering all the Kyosho, Hot Bodies and Tamiya cars. The standard JConcepts ball cups are the best around, fit tight without causing undue friction. Stock Associated cups are too loose IMO--very sloppy.

The MF2 body should fit, but you'll have to line up your own body mount holes. pm sent.

I received a new set of Goose Bumps for 1/10th this week. So I mounted them up and brought them to my local indoor track to show them off. (not the right tire for indoor surface) After a full day of people squeezing and rubbing on them. There should be a lot of sales in this area. Tires that come with the right insert....what a CONCEPT!
