The barcodes fit so well I bought some for my truck as well.
They fit like a glove when glued.

Any chance that JConcepts has a Taper Pin style 1/10 truck tire in the works?

I guess the goosebumps are a cross between a bowtie and crimefighter?
I was gonna get the goosebumps, but everyone at the track recommended barcodes on everything. I suppose the barcodes were just released.
And the bumps have been out for a while.

JC, can you guys go back to putting the older foams back in with the sets of tires, the new (whiter) foam is only good for shipping old items and the stuff that you pack with the buggy front tires (slim whiter) are even worse for shipping old items. Please go back to the old foam and do us all a favor and pack a (old foam) full buggy rear in with the buggy fronts so we can cut them down. Thanks!

Each tire is designed for a certain application. None of the JC tires are a cross between anything. They are original designs. To be overly simple. Goosebumps are for loamy dirt. Double Dees are for packed tracks that have some fluff. And Barcodes are for packed, clean tracks. Nothing is cut-and-dry. But this will get you in the ball park.

JConcepts ghosted orange 4wd front barcodes and ghosted rear blue barcodes are the hot ticket for 4wd. Ghosted orange 2wd barcode fronts or green rounder fronts and ghosted blue rears for 2 wheeler are hot. I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome products, this is my first year racing and it's nice to have such a great product availiable at a good price
I will be running JConcepts body, wing, tires and wheels on my gascar this season as well




b44: Maifield Hot Rod Hobbies setup minus a few small changes/ LRP sxx tc spec/LRP x12 7.5/Protek 35c lipo/JConcepts tires, wheels, wing and ballcups.
b4: CRCRC FT lightweight setup/ LRP sphere tc/LRP x11 17.5/Reedy 20c lipo/JConcepts tires, wheels, body, wing and ballcups/Racers Edge .5 rear hubs.

Trevor, I'm loving your theme! Nothing says "cool" when you paint your fleet with a theme...

Two thumbs up on the custom body wraps!


In regards to JC's tires, they are AWESOME. The first time I used JC tires on JC's wheels, I knew that I was working with a higher level of quality...

Prolines are great, they've always hooked up, but it's the little things that JC does that sets them apart from Prolines.

Not to mention JC's bodies. They are awesome. The Scoopless B44 bodies are the shiznit! The Dare body for the SCs are just fantastic...

Keep up the great work JC and team, and I can't wait for all your new product releases!

No, and I don't know if there is even a plan for one.
But the Hi Flow T4 body is close, just drill out the body post holes before you paint it. They are different. It works great!
BTW thats a Hi Flow T4 body on my RT5 to the left!

I just got back from my Local track. They have started the winter indoor season tonight and the surface is a mixture of loose dirt and dust to hard clay. I am running Goosebumps on my Slash and had issues with traction. I'm not a great driver so I loosened my slipper clutch to manage it. In other classes it is very clear that Double Dees are the prefered tire. I would like to see the Double Dees be added to the Short Course Truck class. Now with the Calibre tires offered from PRo-line it seems fitting that JC would introduce the Double Dee in an SCT tire.

What do you think?
