Random question, how can the supply chain be so bad that during the busiest time of the year you are 2 months out on a very popular tire? This is not a new issue with JC.

As someone with a background in logistics this is mind blowing.

Agreed! SC smoothies are definitelya much to the product list. They are seriously the best slicks that I've run. They're on my 22 2.0 now and The quality is perfect. And so easy to glue with the 60mm!

I sent an email 3 weeks ago and a message on Facebook a week ago and haven't heard back yet. Is there another way I should be contacting the home office regarding a broken Fin turnbuckle? Just trying to buy a single replacement and possibly a single spare. Thanks.

They normally respond the same day or the following day if after hours. Your e-mail must be getting blocked or something. Please PM me here with your problem and contact info (e-mail/phone) and I will have someone contact you tomorrow/ASAP.

Same thoughts. The 2wd panther rears are good, you just need to glue them right.

I would imagine it's going to do very well and most of the current B5M hop-ups will fit. We plan to make new hop-ups that won't carry over from the B5 series.

END OF FEB...cry. Cactus awfully close to that time frame.

We are certainly pushing for sooner and I think it can happen, but we are waiting on more rubber and can't guarantee anything. The Cactus should be a very interesting race this year being indoor and slicks

Please keep in mind that perception and reality can be very different.

Random question, how can 2 people that have no idea about what is going on, question someone that comes on to this forum to help them, question that person.

How about being happy that there is someone taking the time to at least give us some kind of answers? Where is the Proline thread? Where is the AKA thread? How about Exotek or AE or TLR threads?

As someone with a background in dealing with crybabies this is really not that mind blowing.

PW I'm upset that the Gold Dirt Webs for SC truck are not in stock! How dare you make one of the best, most popular, and fastest SC tires for indoor racing. Shame on you! :P

Seriously though hurry up!

Be lucky some of you go Smoothies. I back ordered some thru a distributor and never got any from the first batch. It wasn't a need to have item for me as I just wanted to have them in case. For me personally I try to run as much JC tires as possible as long as I can get them. They do work well and when I raced for Schumacher PW was always a good guy so I continue to support JC even if I don't race for them. Just always liked their products.

I started ordering my outdoor tires already so I will have the JC stuff I need no matter what race is coming up.
