I too am in dire need of spoked rims for my rb5. If they aren't out soon I'm going to have to convert my rb5 to academy front knuckles/axles the way Billy Caldwell did.

Its mean to be an easy way to convert your truck over to a buggy. The rears are normal truck, but the fronts are J82 specific.

andy and JC dont take this the wrong im not really insulting the product, its actually pretty sweet, im just trying to figure out its purpose and figure out what people are seeing it as
If you want the look/steering of a buggy, its a solution. Its your opinion, not an insult at all, not everyone loves everything we do, haha.

If you dont have a local electric track, and yet you still want to race your electric vehicles, here you go. We're not looking to ROAR to make a class or anything. Its a fun, easy way to race two classes with the same car.

Ran the Double D's today for the first time on the B44, and they worked really good! I would say they were a little better than a brand new set of M3 Holeshots, but with better inserts and they took the Buggy Grip2 better. They actually got stickier, whereas M3 compound just gets a little more blah and softer. We will have to see how long the DDs stay hooked up. Holeshots are only good for about 2 wks of racing on this surface, then the pins are worn down too far and they cake up with mud when the track is wet, and can't dig in when its drier.

Its no problem everyone has a right to their opinion, and things differ in different parts of the country.

Default BJ4WE

Hi Andy,You do great work on the Forums,what I would like to know is are you going to keep on developing the BJ4 or is it all down to the B44.
Keep up the good work.
Thanks,
MARTIN.

Andy, Please tell me how I can get the JC tire banner and also the posters that are in the background of the new J82 video on the http://www.ifmarworldchampion.com/ web site. At the moment you only have the standard JConcept banner on your price list, oh and thanks for sorting out my order Allison told me it was ready

I appreciate the kind words...but this is what we're supposed to do as a company (support our product).

At the moment we have many different projects going, and we are going to stand behind the BJ4 for the forseeable future.

I think that banner was one of a select group made for The Clash actually. We many have another banner available in the future, but dont quote me on that. The order thing was no problem.

So andy honestly how much do you want for the banner and posters, after all every thing has a price and the clash is over why let them go to waist.

I just got a set of Rulux-wheels for my BJ4 WE.
the front wheels hardly spin. it seems they touch the steering-block.

looks like the hex is deeper on the rulux-wheels.

is it only my car or are they for b44 only?
