The tires are good we are slowly convincing stores that they are better than proline and we are starting to get a few of the pro drivers dropping proline and coming over to the good side

I have to work out with all the drivers what tires we need for the Australian Nationals later this month and get an order to you this week.

Sounds like we're starting to catch on there, hopefully that trend will continue.

Default 1:10 Goosebumps TQ Ar.C.O.R.R.

Round 2 of the Arkansas Championship Off-Road Racing league took place Sunday April 6th in Hot Springs Arkansas (www.wolfpackracetrack.net).

With the recent release of the 1:10 JConcepts GooseBump Buggy Tires, several racers were prepared to give them a try. They highly competitive Expert 4wd Buggy class had everyone looking for any advantage they could get to pick up time on the track.

Kirk Crisalli from Pine Bluff Arkansas powered his Associated B44 to Top Qualifier Honors using JConcepts GooseBump Tires and JConcepts Inserts. Kirk put down consist laps with the tires and managed to hold on to a 3rd place finish in very tight A-Final with half the field on the same lap after 6 minutes. JD Crow also ran GooseBump 1:10 Buggy Tires on his Kyosho ZX-5 SP for a 5th place finish.

Over all a great debut for the tires in the series. www.arcorr.net

I just got a hold of some of the Double Dee's and the Goosebumps for my electric cars (thanks for the quick shipping too!) and they are NICE! The foams look good too. I was using them at this real blown out non swept race this past weekend and they were great. http://johnnyboydotca.blogspot.com/ for some pics of them.

I have been running the Double Dee's on truck and buggy religiously. They are awesome. When everyone else is changing tires from heat to heat, i leave the DD's on and my car stays consistent the whole day. It's great. hah

JD, Im glad they worked out for you, and that they became available in time. That track looks pretty sweet, but I can see how you guys could benefit from running goosebumps there. If possible, could you keep us updated with the rest of the series, as finding that type of information proves really difficult.

Good to hear, a shame about your 2wd, but at least the day ended well.

Thats exactly what we like to hear, and what they were designed to do.

Hi, I am just using the double dees on my B44 for the first time this weekend.
How much of the front insert do I cut down? How wide should it be?
The surface I will be running on should be hard and a little dusty. No blue groove though.

Got some yellow Double Dee's ordered for 1/8th. The track I'll be running on tends to dry out during the day, and most people run either M3 Crimefighters or M3 Holeshots. Hoping the DD's work better. Also got some extra inserts to use on other PL tires, since their inserts suck so bad.

I would cut 1/4 to 1/3 of the foam off, that is roughly the width of the tire.

I must admit that Blue compound would be comparable to M3, unless the M3's are wearing out too fast, and falling off within a qual.

Andy just a quick heads up for you I just placed a small order for tires for the Australian Nationals 20 x yellow double dee's & 60 x yellow cross hairs.

That should keep you busy for 5 or 10 minutes

Andy, any plans for JC to make a foam inserts like the "old" Trinity Blue Firm for truck and buggy? These would sell like mad in the winter time up here in the North East.

Hay Andy I have a customer that wants rear inner hinge pins for the BJ4, I looked at the BJ4 Manual and it lists part AE2249. I guessed that AE2249 was an associated part but when I looked it up that part turned out to be pivot balls not hinge pins?

Got any ideas for me
