PW,


I noticed that the Vintage RC10 Bellcrank doesn't list the bearing size.

If we need to replace the bearings, can we get the dimension? Also, I was able to get a group buy on the recently released 10T parts, and wanted to order the bellcranks set, but they were out, does JC plan to make more, or were the parts only a limited run?

Got the new 10T body and the towers, can wait to get my team colors thrown on and add a vintage ST to my arsenal.

I'm positive the 10T bellcranks are vastly different than the 10 version.

Actually the T2 and GT steering shortened up to mimic the size/stroke/ackerman of the buggy. I use buggy steering in my 10T and love it (and T2).

Sorry, no Schuy reunion for me...LOL Jason will be going out this year.

Bearings, 1/4 x 3/8 in, flanged - AE bearings

The JC bellcranks were a limited run.

Does anybody know if the finished body for the dex210 v1 is the same height over the esc as standard? Really like the finisher body but it looks a little low at the side pods and I run a fan.

Thanks in advance.

Default JConcepts B5m worlds body

Just bought and painted a JC worlds body for my B5m and it doesn't fit over the slipper. I read on their website retrospectively, that this particular body is for a lay down style transmission. Has anyone modified this body to fit a standard 3 or 4 gear trans? If so, could you please post or PM me pictures? Thanks.

I personally like the way Cav cut his, but you can see Spencer left a little more material. I attached one of mine and it's cut much like Cavs.

question for you guys, the track i run at I am looking for some advice on JConcepts tires that could work. The common proline or aka tires for 1/8 can range from Calibers / City Blocks to something like a proline stunner / AKA Grid iron. In general, Compound usage for the taller tread types are M4s / Super Softs and smaller treads like an M3 / Soft. "Soft" in the taller treads have too much slip.

Any tips on what JConcepts tires to go with? I was thinking about trying that Metrix tire on sale on the JConcepts site but shipping is killer lol so may see what i can find local. That, more maybe some chasers.

As for 1/10, It looks like closet tire to an proline m4 caliber would be the Goosebump in Green compound?

Track is mostly AKA but I am liking what i have for Jconcepts stuff right now, so trying to get on point.

Also, how well do the stock foam inserts that come with the 1/10 goosebumps hold up? Track is very rough and loose, so figuring going with those.

For 8th scale, I run Reflex in 99.99999% of the tracks I go to. No matter what everyone else is on

I do practice alot with Remix (green compound) on my nitro car because they last a long time.

that remix looks like something that could be the ticket as when the 1/8's get to run, its pretty much dry by that point. Kind of reminds me at least from what I can tell from the pins like what I see on my SCT with the proline stunners, maybe taller pins?

I'll give these a look.

-I would suggest Subcultures in green (super soft) for a caliber/city block replacement.

-I would suggest Reflex, Triple D's, Lil' Chasers for small pin tires in green and blue.

-Goose Bumps and Flipouts would be a good 1/10th buggy tire in green compound if you are on Calibers. The stock insert is recommended for tracks that these particular tread patterns work.

just waiting for those 2.2 smoothies..................................
Unfortunately it will be a long wait, maybe see something for next indoor season/winter .
