Are there plans for Finnisher style bodies for any of the following cars...?

- Team C TC02 / T2 (= Ansmann X2 / X2TE) ?
- The same above but with +6mm Evo chassis ?
- Team C TC02C / T2C (= Ansmann X2C) ?

I took them back to Hobby People to exchange for another 2 sets but they had hairline cracks in those two sets as well. These are not mold lines. The cracks are at different places surrounding the inside hub.

Has anyone else noticed this in their wheels and or had a problem cracking hubs when running? I don't feel like mounting these and wasting a set of brand new tires.
I've seen this on every Hazard wheel I've mounted for me as well as some of our team drivers. It seems to be a strange anomaly with this particular wheel, but it's not a crack and hasn't had any affect in regards to durability.

Hi guys,
Ex-On road guy just made the switch and to be honest I'm on thread study overload after the weekend. I'm gonna cheat on this one and ask before searching (this is my apology in advance)

I run a FT SC10 4X2 and am interested in the hex conversion on the rear but like the current bearing set-up in the front so what I'd like to avoid is a backspacing mismatch with new wheels. I don't care about the look of a wheel so which flavor/ model doesnt matter, can someone give me the part numbers for the rear and front wheels that will help me maintain current backspacing given my set-up? Any input you guys can lend is most appreciated!!!!!

Kevin
Front bearing wheel - 3317
Rear hex wheel - 3332

I bought some front alum. hexes for my SC10 and I'm having an issue with the bolt holes being that they recessed the holes to deep and their are no threads for the bolts to start. If i start them from the other side they will tighten down no problem. Any one else with this problem? Should i try and get a longer bolt or try and send them back.

Contact JConcepts directly and they will get you a replacement. Every once and a while the threads don't go all the way. If you want a quick fix you could get a slightly longer screw. Either way JConcepts will make it right.

Default Hazard Wheels

I posted a few pages back that I had purchased some JC hazard wheels that appear to have hair line cracks in the back of the hubs. The cracks appear to be at the outside of the hex area moving out to the hub. It is in different locations on different wheels I have checked. So far I have seen this in 6 sets of wheels at two different locations. I contacted JC customer svc and the woman I spoke to said she has not heard or seen this as of yet. She even grabbed a wheel in stock to check.

After cracking plenty of DE Racing wheels I am leary of running these. JC will send me a replacement if they break but I am more concerned about the cost of the tires. I have quite a few sets of broken DE wheels with new tires only run one or two heats.

I bought another pair at another location. One set had the cracks and the other pack did not. Very strange. I ran them in a night of racing on my SC10 4x and so far they are holding up. Still not crazy about the cracks though. I guess i will find out if the hairline cracks will open up.

I just bought a set of the JC Short Course Firm inserts 3217-1 and am not sure what side the cutout of the insert goes?

I am thinking it goes on the inside tall rim side

I have run the Hazard wheels since they first came out. I have about 15 sets, and all of them have the lines you are speaking of. I run them on both 4 wheel and 2 wheel drive sct's and have never had one fail. And believe me I have given them some shots!

The beveled edge/cut side goes toward the inside of the tire or 3.0" side.
