Sounds good. Thanks.

I don't know why but I don't like theirs as much as the j-concepts ones.

I had a set on a SC5m I sold, I should've swapped them out for stock ones and kept the good ones lol,

Thanks, except that link doesn't help put them on a T6.1 in any way. If I could find a set of T5m/SC5m ones it would likely work but they seem to be nearly impossible to find in stock anywhere.

I hear you,Bob!
I cannot find Goosebumps for my T-4's.
3023-02.
I have looked on at least 20 sites! Goose Bumps ? 2.2? Truck | JConcepts
"Back order" is what I get............I put 'em on B.O from Tower Hobbies.I found pre-mounted ones,but those are 12 mm hex drives.

The J Concept rods have larger/longer adjustment flats.Maybe that's why you like 'em.

Is it common for jconcepts 1/8th tires to tear pins off right at the base where the meet the tire carcass or is it just my local track destroys them? Ive tried a few tread designs and compounds and they all seem to shed half the pins before the tires even start to really wear.
the other big companys (and two of the smaller guys) tires dont have this issue on my local track but chasers and little chasers are faster and the rubber seems to hold up well i just have issues tearing pins off

The green compound J Concepts DO rip the pins out. Green is too soft.
I use the blue Proline inserts.
Some track surfaces are harder on tires than others.Much more abrasive,I have found.
