Where can one find out more about these inserts (does JB have a web site?) and who can my hobby shop get them from for their stock?

JB Blue is acctually a peak/orion pruduct.

Try the toprcsupply web site

This is the official orion web store. As I can see right now is that they don't have the thin ones on stock. Both medium, and thick is in stock. They also provides the excellent Peak/Orion rims for a good price.

So the thin ones, ORI71030 or PEK2560 are the ones to get for indoor carpet? I see Corally has part JBBT, but I don't see it on the Corally USA web site. For a product that appears to have been around for quite some time it sure is hard to locate.

Is JB a Japanese company?

They are fore sure, top of the line for carpet racing, the best IMO.

They come from Denmark by the way.

JB Foam is a Dainish company. They were exclusively sold by Orion (and hence Peak) a few years ago, however i'm 99% sure that this hasn't been the case for 2-3 years now.

That said, I haven't seen them available for sale on their own for quite some time (since the orion days). In the UK Schumacher uses them as part of a pre build in Sorex 28's and 32's. Although they don't sell the insert on it's own.

If you are stuck and cannot find them (they are for sure the best for carpet, I have 40 and re use them) try the sweep EXP-LS

Easy to find, cheap and almost identical

Looks like I'll have to go with the Sweeps. Sounds like they're the new dominator in the TC tire wars anyway, so thank you for the help.
