2wd at our track run codes F & subs R. SCT runs codes all around. I think they have less side bite and reduce traction rolls... forward bits is about the same between the two.
My 2 anyway

I love them on my 4x4 Mugen. If the racing line is fairly clean Pressure points will have a advantage over codes.

Thanks to Jason Ruona @ Jconcepts for a great event at SmacTrac this past weekend! Hats off to Young gun / Jconcepts team driver Damon Borkowicz for a strong finish in all his classes....complete class act young man with a lot of great years ahead of him and I wish him the best every time he puts his car on the track.....We had some great runs together in the stock buggy triple a's.....he is a extremely fast and clean driver. Unfortunately, we both had some tough luck a few times, lol....I ran clipped green barcodes f/r all weekend and they were very consistent for me. I am looking forward to seeing the JC crew in April, a group from SmacTrac is going to make it down to Mikes for rd2!

Default High clearance wing change?

I picked up a new 6.5" high clearance buggy wing over the weekend. The shape is the same as the ones I picked up over the summer, but the material seems thinned down? The wing seems a lot more flexible? Have there been any changes? I'm disappointed as I expect it to be less effective, and crumple quicker.

Dave Duncan will be there with a product booth setup and we will have a large number of drivers there. I'm not sure exactly what product was sent out.

I don't know an exact time frame, but they are in testing now and once everything is approved, then production will begin. My guess would be for the Cactus Race.

The thickness does vary from time to time unfortunately.

The SC10 axle is slightly longer to help support the wider hex.

Daimon is definately a class act both on and off the track. He has a big future ahead of him in what ever he does because he has a great attitude.

I'm having the same problem. I clean with acetone and scuffed the bead. Won't stick at all using aka glue. Any other brand of tire no problems at all

I have found acetone to work poorly for cleaning tires. Acetone is used to remove CA. I would recamend motor spray or windex.
