The offset doesnt allow that to be a possibility.

17.5 was what I was told for SCT "Mod" class. I'll see if I can snap a pic of J's SC10 later today.

I'm considering to buy a set of Goose Bumps for my SC10. What kind of wear time can I expect to get out of a set? I run on red clay with a somewhat loose surface. Since they are the super soft green compound, will I get only one or two race nights out of them? They would be strictly for racing.

Running on a loamy or loose surface should allow the tires to wear well, they should last for quite a while. We're not talking about a small pin tire on a blue groove track.

Some pics of the new Illusion RC8e body I quickly got ready for the Shootout this weekend. I have a second one and B44 scoopless body to send off to PMI eventually for a fancy paintjob.

I think you'll be happy with the goose bumps. I run them on my B44 on a loose loamy track. The problem is that When the tires are new they have too much traction and the car will tend to traction roll in the corners if I push it too hard. The tires are great after the bumps get worn though. On new sets, I take a wire cutter and cut the bumps off to speed the wear process. Like Andy said, these tires should last you a long time. The other great thing about JC tires is that you dont have any extra rubber on the glueing lip of the tire to remove like with P**-***e tires.

The 0009 and the 0048 are styled significantly different, and the CR body is a little longer as well.

Hey Andy, guys, I'm going to order a few JConcepts wings for my B44. I'm tired of the stock ones ripping to shreds after a while, hopefully these will last a bit longer.

Which wing would you recommend for a B44? Medium sized track (specifically 1/10th size, not a 1/8th track) with fairly low traction conditions.

I was wondering what difference other than looks the deep V wing has over the regular wing?

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

Codman, my personal preference is the 6" high downforce V-wing because of the large difference in downforce. My local track is as loose as they come and the v-wing does more than it's share to settle the rear of my B44. As for durability, you'll enjoy the JC wings AND bodies. Good luck!

Jon
