Well cats n kittens...Our very own mad scientist of the foam world has been at it AGAIN. Eddie over at Crawler Innovations just sent THESE beauties over.

Thats right!!! ANOTHER killer refinement for the comp minded soul that's looking for that edge!

The idea behind this inner foam is basically more adjustability for the end user. Instead of having the single channel of the original Comp Cut inner...you now have the choice of exactly HOW MUCH forward bite, overall center support, lug or pin integrity & sidewall support you'd like from your foams.

In a nutshell...you now have a few options at your fingertips to bring tuning your foams to another level.

You can run these foams straight from the package as seen above allowing your foams that added "give" of the machined channels without sacrificing too much overall integrity...or you can simply grab your lexan scissors & with a few simple cuts, you can remove one of the center "ribs" to give you more forward bite while keeping some overall support & center stiffness or remove BOTH for that extreme tire wad without sacrificing sidewall integrity.

These new CLOSED CELL inners are another VALUABLE tuning tool & as I said above...Eddie has given us yet ANOTHER competitive option with his growing lineup of foams. As always...Eddie has been not only ASKING what we want in a foam but has been working hard & investing in new tooling & machinery to bring those ideas to fruition.

I think a lot of people overlook the REAL value of tuning your foams to your tire, rig, terrain, drive style etc. Even the best tuned suspension will only work so well without the added support of a PROPERLY tuned tire setup.

As of right now...when you order a 5.5" Comp Cut Inner...THESE are what you'll receive. Eddie expects the entire lineup of sizes to be available for purchase around the 1st of July so keep your eyes peeled & vist Crawler Tires, Crawler Foams, Parts and Accessories by Crawler Innovations (http://www.crawlerinnovations.com) to up your tire & foam tuning game!!

Also remember that if you need just the closed cell inner foams, open cell outer or ANY individual piece or part of the foams offered bt Crawler Innovations...you can just click on the tab labeled FOAM PARTS on the C.I. website or HERE (http://www.crawlerinnovations.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=29&Itemid=90)

Nice Eddie.

I know that Eddie has helped me out a lot in the foam game, Comp and Scalers, IMHO, there is no other foam to buy, you really get a huge improvement for the kinda small change that these really cost. They should last years, if taken care of anyway, for use with multiple tire sets.

Wana try them in the 2.2s.....
