Default J Concepts Wing Mount

On the jconcepts thread they calin the wing mount is coming back in stock.

It says on this description it recommends the wing shim for added durability.

For anyone that runs this already do you think the wing shim is necessary? deciding if I need it or not.

I think if anything more of a variation of the B5. I cannot see them coming out with a B6 when this one hasn't been out long enough. Just look at history, but then again I've been wrong once in my life.

Shim seems like a lot of weight way up high?

roar requires buggies to fit a saddle/square pack or a full stick pack. IFMAR does not have that rule. hence the reason they were able to run it at the worlds. Now...will roar change the rule this year before nats? No idea. No idea if laydown will even be good at the nats track.

I think that its unnecessary extra weight that you are adding to a high-spot on the car. Its a vanity item.

The new Xray XB4 is not made to accept a saddle or full pack and it says ROAR approved. Not sure how that works? I thought the rule was as you stated.

I am unsure what the car can or cant take. I checked the rule a couple months ago and it had not changed. When I talked to Brent about it, he made a comment about how they had tried to get the rule changes, but were unsuccessful. As far as I know the rule still stands, but maybe a change is coming soon?

Hanging on to that rule is so dumb to me. A AE Driver told me that is what held up the new 4x4 car. They wanted to see the rule change but ROAR would not budge.

I am just going off my conversation with Brent and what I see in the rule book. I have no idea what ROAR or AE has up their sleeve for the near future. AE may very well make a Euro spec car.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but do you run 4wd front tires on the 2wd wheels?
