JConcepts Dirt-Tech InsertsJConcepts has upped the ante with the release of the new Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts. Gray in color, the new inserts are designed in conjunction with tire insert guru, Brian “Dirt” Kinwald to bring the ultimate touch and feel while providing utmost durability. The 2wd | 4wd rear and 4wd front insert has alternating shallow and deep cuts on the outside which touch off against the tire inner carcass providing a cushy response and feel. The 2wd front insert has 3 relatively deep cuts spaced across the width giving a subtle feel to front tires for precise steering control. The inside has horizontal channels cut in a 360 pattern to soak up the large impacts and help create forward bite and increase acceleration.

Around 150 racers from the surrounding states joined together to remember a fallen hero in the rc community. Bubba Barham, race director, did a great job for Jamie’s son Ty and his Mother, Melissa. FRC had many sponsors donating product to be raffled off to raise money for Ty and his family, with close to $4,000 raised.
