I haven't used these tires yet so my tests will be blues on all 4 corners first

i dont run JC tires, but i can't imagine blues being hard enough. Orange is what most run on dry track

Chatted with the B44.1 guys a while back and blues in the rear with white/orange up front was the combo. Grabbed blues for the front as I had an extra set of front plastics.

The orange vs. white is the groove vs. all condition and that I have to just try as I don't have dry track experience

Orange JC or Losi Red tires will be the most hooked up, if there are not weather issues.

Good info, thanks guys

Just looked and I have Blues for the rear and front which are soft "all condition" and then I have sets of Orange fronts only which are also soft but "groove condition"

Hopefully the Blue rears and orange fronts will work

Keoni, it was great to meet you tonight. My son and I are chompin' at the bit to come out and play again, it's been a LONG time!
Mac, great to re-meet you!! A lots changed in ~10 years!
It was very nice to talk with you and get your insights!
My son couldn't stop talking about your B44.1!
We're hoping to be out next Wednesday to run a few laps with his SC10.

Thanks again!

Ron

Thanks for the Info,

Unfortunalty i was informed by Scottsdale RC speedway that the dates were a week earlier, and consequently i just had to pay $700 to change my flights to a week later.

Thats what happens when you jump the gun.....

See you all there.

Calling it out!
You and Jan should start a Kyosho Facebook page with your SC and his 2wd buggy! Take pics and all that good stuff...
