Thanks for the quick reply. One more question then, how much harder is blue than green? Alot, a little, hardly noticeable, etc.?

Green and Blue are close; orange is a much bigger jump in hardness.

Nothing in the works right now. If we do, it would be next year sometime.

Any plans on making the BAJR body for longer wheel based vehicles? I love using this as a basher body plus it keeps my temps low with the high air flow.

You had shown JC battery thumbscrews on Jason's B4.1 at a race, any plans to make them? They appeard to be a larger diameter vs the stock.

No plans at the moment.

Yes; I'm thinking sometime in September.

I am thinking about picking up some JC Hybrids for my 1/10 buggy in blue compound. How well does this tire work on a wet soft clay track? How about a mixed wet/dry track? Which JC front tire would best compliment tthe Hybrids on wet/dry mixed clay?

I don't have any experience with the Hybrid on a wet/soft clay track, but the tire seems to excel on hard packed surfaces with slight dust. I normally run them with either Rips or Bar Code fronts.

Yeah, no one run barcodes on this track. There is too much debris. The track has a lot of the small pebbles in the dirt. So what is the JC wet soft clay tire and compound for buggy?
