Ouch. Cheap shots at someones finances doesn't seem too cool for any reason.

Everyone has different dirt, conditions, and preferences. Sorry they didn't help you.

I have found that the Dirt Webs can tend to need a little bit longer break-in period before they are really good. I will scuff them in on some 80-100 grit sandpaper to open them up a little to get them in sooner.

IRS is a problem everyone shares....

The guy that I got mine has been doing very well with it.
Personally did not think I would have much of a wait.
Won't be much longer anyways and will be many years of great racing ahead for the Wild...

Matt I'll be interested to hear more since these are supposed to fix the 'durability' issue with the prior JC ones (compared to red AKA cc foams).

Fully agreed on this. While I've only gotten 1 set of Dirt Webs so far (I have 2 rear sets arriving tomorrow), myself as well as most other folks seem to feel they take longer to break in. A good 6-8 mod motor packs @ OCRC before they seemed to be getting there. But man... they are incredible! Tons of forward bite

I'll be down there @ OCRC Friday around noon to hang for a bit. Picking up my aluminum rear hubs from a buddy, see the Stock Nats layout, and chat with peeps for a bit. Probably going to take off and go run LRH after that. Hoping to stop back in Sunday for some of the bigger mains.

Good luck out there Mr.Trimmings

Seriously.

My wife and I would be "rich" if it weren't for these 3 kids we decide to keep taking care of
