That doesn't mean they will pop off easyer does it?

Thanks!

Not at all; they have been some of the best I've ever used for not popping off .

The most important thing about keeping your ballcups from popping off is to not get any cleaners or dirt/grime residue in them while cleaning your car. The most common denominator in everyone having ballcup problems is they clean their cars all the time and there is a lot of oily, dirty grime build-up on the ballstud under the ballcup.

Its definitely is a style choice... The square cup looks goofy on the front camber links. So used round ones on inside and out. Used the square ones on the inside of the steering links and round ones on the outside. Obviously used the curved cup on the rear which is cool because it really does move the turnbuckle away from the spring so no rubbing. Used the square one on the outside in the rear Since it is mainly pivoting purpindicular to the ground.
Still have not tried them but a lttle concerned on how easy they popped on but I will hold judgement till I race with them. Cant imagine they would pop off easier Jconcepts has always seemed to do thier home work before they release a product

I assumed there should be a picture below the bold lettering, however I don't see anything, and when quoted there is nothing there showing a link or attachment, so that's why I asked.

Edit: Looking at the post from my phone works, but for some reason the desktop won't pull it up. Maybe an issue with linking photos from facebook.

The 2013 JConcepts Clash is building and acquiring entries on a daily basis. 440 pre-entries are already in for the most unique event of the year. Ryan Maifield, Dustin Evans and JR Mitch are all signed up and ready to battle once again. 2wd modified, 1/8th nitro expert and 1/8th e-buggy remain the largest classes of competition. A fresh track layout designed by Paul Wynn is in the finishing stages, widescreen Clash awards are in process, 7th annual Clash t-shirts are ready and trophy girl preparation has been finalized.



The track layout flows like water, the shading on the drawing represents elevation which is a focus inside Flowood R/C park along with rhythmic jump sections and speedy chicane driving. Are the jumps doubles, triples, quads or rollers? We will find out when that first vehicle hits the track September 6-8, 2013. Katelynn Ansari, current Monster Energy girl cover model and 2013 JConcepts Clash girl, will be in attendance Saturday and Sunday for photo opportunities, promotion and Sundays awards presentation. Be sure to come out, stop by the JConcepts booth and get an autograph from Katelynn during the weekend’s festivities.



RedRC will be back to completely cover the event with the journalism they are known for, including top of the line photography and videography. Please visit please RCsignup.com today to pre-register for the 2013 JConcepts Clash. Prepayments are also now being taken to secure your place in this year’s event.

Which front wheels from JConcepts fit the B44.2? Are the Rulux wheels a direct fit?
