Hey Billy!!!!! I believe I saw a set of yellow rims in a pic of THodge's car too and I could make out the Yokomo logo on them.

Is there a way I can mix up some rit and dye my rims flour yellow? Also got a sprint car cage id like that color.

If not may give the yok rims a try, is the offset any different than the losi dish wheel?

Nope--0 offset. Check out Speedtech. Steve usually keeps them in stock.

Are they really yellow rims? I know Matt Francis was running yellow rims at the nats (foam TRCs) and was putting black vinyl on them because he doesn't like the yellow rims. So it's possible to use yellow vinyl on white rims.

Good idea. Ive got two sets of the losi wheels to use up first, but then I think ill give the yoks a try, thanks for all the responses.

Pooky.. Yeah I have been running those colors off and on since I started in 97. If I can't do flour yellow ill do the cage in black.

Yes there are yellow rims....*edit* never mind this came out wrong..... There are companies out there that make rim "stickers" or wheel dots that go over your dish rims to either change the color or make it look like you have spoked rims.

Will this tray become standard on all the new cars, or at least a plastic version of it?

I'm thinking about getting a JRX-S but I'd feel a bit hard done by if I had to buy the car and then another tray as well to fit my GP3700's in.

Just got a couple of questions also:

I've had mates who have had the XXX-S G+ and they had nothing but problems with it, they kept breaking them very easily and it didn't seem to work on a low grip surface. What's the JRX-S like for durability? How many parts have you guys broken since you've been running the car?

Also, how are the standard shock springs? Can you get a decent setup with them for foams on carpet?
