while i wasn't there, at a big race our track had a few months ago, a driver (i think sponsored by jconcepts) ran red dirt webs on our abrasive sugared track and while his ride was hooked up, his tires wore much faster than the guys running X2 suburbs which is why i'm interested in red barcodes.

Default front axles for the b5

If you already have the clamping front axles can you just install your titanium axles or do I need your hexes also?

Yes, you can install the new axles using the AE clamping hexes .

I am thinking about picking up the JC CF tlr22 front tower. I am trying to greatly reduce my kids breaking, as the stock tower is only lasting 2 weekends. Should i seal the edges on the top?

Sealing the graphite is a good idea, but don't seal it straight from the glue bottle. Use a Q-tip or old exacto blade to spread the glue along the edge. Sealing straight from the glue bottle allows to much glue into the fibers and can make the graphite brittle.

2wd buggy dirt tech inserts

PW would you recommend punching holes or trimming
Inside webbing to soften them
And help them break-in?

fronts are really good right out of the package. the rears are pretty good too, but i would trim the inside webbing by about 1mm on the rears after running completely unmodded foams. seem to be holding up very well too.

Guess it all depends on the track and traction levels. I like to trim the inner webbing for most of the tracks I run on. I have good luck with mine breaking-in by the end of one club day of racing (2-3 packs).

PW-

The Silencer body for the 22 2.0 is really starting to grow on me but I run a rear motor setup. Will y'all be coming out with a Silencer for the rear motor 22? If not, can the MM one be made to fit? Any pics or experience that you're aware of? Thanks!!

Default Compound

Hey guys.
I run on a indoor dusty clay track.
I usually use super soft Dirt Webs.
When would I use the indoor clay compound ?
I am always searching for traction.
wouldn't the super softs provide more traction than the harder clay compound tyres ?

Thanks.
Tom

I actually saw someone this Weds with one and it looked really good. I didn't get any pics, but it fit really nice. I will try and get pics next time.

Normally golds are used on cool/cold damp clay surfaces with low or no dust.

Any chance of making those battery hold down screws that would replace the thumbwheels on the b5 that were on the b4.2. I liked using the wrench better than my thumbs to tighten them

Yes

I've seen a few guys replace the 3mm grub-screw with a 4/40 screw and just use the B4 ones

Yes, but it would be nice to have the bigger diameter like the b5! Much easier to tighten and loosen!
