I ordered some clamping hexes for my B44.2 buggy from Tower Hobbies, and one of them was defective. Out of the bag It was drilled too large so the screw didn't thread at all, and doesn't clamp. Should I contact JC directly for a replacement or go through the distributer, Tower?

I had the same issue with new B4.1 front hexes. Same vendor. I put a message in through the jconcepts website but have not recieved a response. I will send a message to the 'info' address.

Just ordered the Monore carbon fiber battery strap for the 22sct hopefully this ends my issues with the battery and foam blocks coming out of the truck. I've been running the blue barcodes and love them. But looking at your website I was a little confused as the different compounds go by how hot it is? if I understood correctly?

I'm running a indoor clay track in Upstate NY and its not heated and the indoor temp is in the 40's right now. So are the blue barcodes good for that.

Normally when it gets cold, we tend to drop down to a softer compound to compensate (rubber hardens in colder temps), but its all traction dependent. If the track is cold, but still produces great traction, then stick with the Blue.

Very Nice! My sentiments exactly about the Jconcept entire Line of Punisher Bodies... They always seem to make the car a bit more stable, predictable and Fly nicely... Of course they look great as well!!!

Default tires punching

I have decide this year too use 4 small holes in my tires to vent them instead of just the two holes. i also have place my hole on the inside of the tire. so my hole location are inside on 3 set of tires at 3 , 6, 9, and 12 if your looking at a clock. Im nut sure if this is a good thing or bad i have herd of this before but forgot where. i am mainly hopping this will help keep the dirts out of the tires just a little more before. i seem to have to open up the same set of tires like 3 times a year before they even get worn out to get the dirt out of them from the tracks, has anybody done this yet. pro and cons maybe or just some input if it good or a bad idea lol.

Got a question. Where would you use 7's for in 1/8th buggy? Im thinking hard packed light dust, maybe if its blown out to knock the edge off?

Thanks!

Will the Double Dees (green) be a good choice for a 4WD 1/10 Buggy on loose – dry soil?

Thanx!

When you say four holes on the inside of the tire, are you meaning the sidewall itself? I personally think 4 holes is overkill, and if you do mean the sidewall, then the sidewall would be significantally softer. I normally race at a track that requires slicks and sauce, and we do 2 holes inner sidewall because it prevents the sauce from getting onto foam and deteorating it quicker, but I also run JC rims which have 2 holes pre drilled.

I hope this helps.

As for the green double dees, how much dust does the track get usually, or loose dirt? Does it have a groove under that layer?

Unfortunately we only get 2 or 3 runs out of a set of tires in FL, so I will have to leave that for someone else to answer .

You got it . Hardpack grooved surfaces and they are good in the bumps or square edges.

That's where I would start.
