It still happens. There just isn't enough rubber there to keep them longer than 6-7 race days.

Can't believe old 2.2's may be the new kool-aide.
i was looking at JC tires, guess some, appear from text on amainhobby site they work on 2 sets of rims

"The Diamond Bar carcass has been designed to work on either standard 2.2” or the larger 61mm / 2.4” wheels. The tire comes as is ready to mount as 2.2”, but by trimming the bead it can fit onto 61mm / 2.4” wheels. Bead trimming should only be performed by an expert"

yeah, it still happens. But is does help. AKA and Proline were ripping for me easier than the JC. The JC dirt tech foam might help to support the sidewalls better. Unsure, as I never tried the dirt tech in 2.4 primes/AKA. Personally, I am thinking about going back to 2.2 wheels and tires. They just feel more plush on the track. But the 2.4s do seem to steer better on high bite and less traction rolls.

I ran 2.2 primes with dirt techs front and rear this weekend, they were horrible but not fully broken in. Somehow I squeaked into the A with a blown out car.

The 2.2/60mm has been CRAP here since the word go! Worst thing ever. I understand it's better for stick classes bc of the weight. However in mod on typical medium bite indoor and especially bumpy tracks, the 2.2 are superior in every way.

The foams were too stiff? Or the track was too dry. I ran sunday and the track was a bit dry for sure.

Yeah too stiff, no rear grip. I really prefer the 2.4 tire shape but I have 6 sets of new 2.2 primes I need to do something with.

On another note, the girl sweet and nothing against her, but Adam really needs to fix his race program. Better track maintenance and a faster run day.

When you pay that little, you end up with what you get.

How much do you guys pay down there? I thought $20 for two classes was decent.

The sunday race program is amateur hour..... Funny as hell when she butchers your last name though. I am told it is better on tuesday and thursdays, but I cant make it out then. And yeah, the jc foams need to break in. Is the tire profile too flat? too round? What are you referring to on the shape.

The size and curve of the sidewall, the roundness of the tire.

Please give your feedback on the low CG/Laydown trans that are available for the B5M. For those of you have one, or have driven one on a high traction, clay track. Is it worth it?

Haven't driven one, but on high traction, physics and lap times say they are faster.

The WWHD trans is the pace setter. It can not be beat.

TQ and 2nd qualifier at cactus were still regular 3 gear cars...

Tito won JBRL @ SDRC in 17.5 with an Anders lind car...

A buddy popped one in, and literally went from B main to the A - just much easier to drive. on super high bite. There's some little things that still need to be addressed by a more dedicated platform like the 22 3.0 laydown does with the hubs and other pieces.
