Absurd would be to order only one package of anything online. Just have a shop or track order it then. Atleast the JC wheels come 2 pair per package.

You could also use the RPM version, part #RPM80232.

Shipping 1 set of truck wheels from FL to CA...

USPS First Class: $2.68
USPS Priority Mail: $7.15

Seems pretty reasonable to me.

You got me there - that's decent. I mixed up with one set of tires. Those are $15 for ups ground. Yes usps is cheaper, but I would like to actually get it as well.

Haven't had a failure in USPS yet, and that's shipping things world wide lately. USPS stuff to me been perfect. USPS has taken twice as long. or wrong truck had my items cause people loading not paying attention. USPS i was still getting 2 day priority packages from Opposite side of US (nj to me in CA) in 2 days.


Bought my wheels on the BAy before truck release. was i think just under 15 shipped a little high. I know my local track has a ton of DE since the owner of DE stops in a lot. and don't think is to far away.

The best grip is always early rounds of quals and by mains is the loosest conditions.

So are there any good setups available for Med to Low grip outdoor tracks? The 4 on the Associated site don't match, although the Thielke may be where I start but need to dial in traction. Any ideas?

I have been running similar to Thielke setup on outdoor, dusty, loose and bumpy australian track. I went with 2 rear limiters instead of 1 but used the 3 in the front. Works really well even on low grip, been running holeshots but they don't last long, went with suburbs which worked better, still plenty of grip but small window for error, if you get offline it's obviously slippery.

I'd start with that setup like I have done, if need more grip maybe keep the brass C block on hand. Use that a lot in buggy in Australian conditions

I will give the limiters a try. The Double D's are the go to tire in Stadium track on this track, the cool thing is that tire wear is minimal. I however have a new set of super softs on order to maximize grip. I don't have the brass C block but will order one once I see how this setup works. Thanks,

You probably won't need the C block, but it's good to have just in case. The truck out of the box had more grip than i expected.

Let us know how you go, will be good to see how it goes on another loose track.

It's easier to add more limiters than what you think you will need, you can test less limiters by just unscrewing the shock end a full turn.
