Did John draw the short straw for getting the cold weather races? First time I met him was at Spektrum, which was not FL. weather and now he gets to go to Ohio which most likely won't be FL. weather either. Poor guy.

I think John is originally from St. Louis, so he knows his way around cold weather .

Yes, he is from STL so he is used to it.

Anyone have problems with the jcon steering rack? I put one on this week and it has a lot of play up and down and I used the spacers, it's like the bearings are the wrong thickness.

had the JC rack in the sc10 and it was very good, make sure the bearings are the right ones!

So with the new associated cars will we see a newly designed body? I know I've asked before but I'm really ready to see some new buggy body designs

Is the new silver compound designed to be a sauce tire or was it to avoid using sauce but have the same traction as sauced tires?

The bearings should be really tight out of the package, but I recommend sealing the inside/outside edges of the graphite strap with CA. The bearing should be a press fit into the Graphite. Also pay attention that the bearing isn't upside down; this will be a big problem .

Yes; we plan to do a new body style.

None of the tires are really designed to be sauced; it's just a trial and error system and tends to be track specific. The silver does feel softer and tends to come in quicker, so in theory they shouldn't need to be sauced as heavily or at all.

JSWO I just installed the rack in my b4 and new sc10.2 kit a few days ago and had the same issue. The bearings are moving in the graphite if you move one end up and down you will see what i mean on the other side.

Bearings in both rack kits I bought were not a press fit. I even ran it sloppy like that in my b4.2 and the steering arm wore the top of the graphite rack so what I did was use CA on the graphite then put the bearing in. Be very careful to not use too much CA so it doesn't drip in the bearing! Both racks work fine now after many many runs on them and have no slop.

Wrong Warehouse though

Glad to see BK still creating awesome tread designs. DirtWebs should be sweeet for a lot of indoor tracks

Question regarding the chassis protectors, do they affect chassis flex?
