=/ Got a set of bad barcodes (bubbles & out of round), is the "contact us" link on the website the appropriate method of contact?

On carpet I've had success with Gold Barcodes and Sevens. We have a 5,000 sq. ft track space here in Ontario that is large enough to race indoor 8th scale on carpet. I have also tried Yellow and the wear was better but the traction was not as good as the Gold compound. I would also use a medium-firm insert with Gold Sevens.

Hope this helps!

Not sure of the ETA, but they are in the production line now.

Not anytime soon, but on the list of possibilities.

Paul, ended up with the RB6 Finnisher on the Slim project of mine. Thanks for measuring the width for me.

Any word on the relase date of the titanium turnbuckles? Was just about to get 2 sets of Lundsfords, but if you are about to release them... I saw them on Mayfields B4.2

Paul, I think there needs to be some sort of a note or an * with the b4.1 axles for hex conversion stating they only work with JC wheels and/or JC hexes.

My wheels (DE & AKA) wobble on them. I am using Avid hexes. If I put two washer's that are about 2mm thick on each wheel (before the nut), I can tighten the nut up and get no play/wobble. No washers and it's pretty bad. I did a little research and found another post about this as well.

With no washer's I can tighten the nut fully to the axle and it does not fully seat the wheel. As a matter of fact, if I try to tighten a little more the entire hex/axle would spin in the wheel.

Needless to say this is unacceptable and I am going to have to spend more money on AE axles.
