I just didn't think it was my place to say who it is until they make the announcement themselves. My guess is they want to be 100% ready to start shipping once the announcement is made....I didn't want to let the cat or "Dog" in this case out of the bag
Thanks, and thanks again, Paul!

I do believe they have started production, but not sure ETA though.

I believe they have shipped and expected first week of April, so 2 weeks.

I just noticed the soft purple astroturf compound in the tire compound overview. Is it still in development? I'd love to see a real alternative to green Ballistic Buggy minispikes, especially as there is no stadium truck version available. Schumacher silvers are not bad in the wet, but not great either.

We still have it on the list, but unfortunately there are much higher priorities on the list right now

Anyone have the J Concepts electric conversion parts that were made for the Associated 10GT? They sold out and probably won't make anymore.

Questions?? Glue on Outside Wall of Tire for Carpet?

Hello,

Following the JConepts carpet race at NW Hobbies I noticed in the AE Meet and Greet FB video by JC the cars appear to have tire glue on the outside wall of the tire. Is this true?

If so, what’s the reason for doing so?
Does it apply to both fronts and rears, 2WD and 4WD?


Thx and great coverage of the NCTS

It is a proven means to reduce sidebite to prevent the cars from traction rolling on carpet.

A coating of Shoe Goo reduces sidewall traction,when you get into the boards.
See the black marks on the yellow wheels.
We used to do the same when we ran foamies to reduce chunking.
