JCO3109JConcepts remains committed to 1/10th off-road racing by releasing the Smoothies. In some conditions in off-road racing, there is no denying that a slick tire is the fastest way around the track. Throughout the racing calendar year, there are several tracks where slicks in gold compound are the go-to tire. In damp weather, indoor clay surfaces become so tacky that the lower the tread or to the point of zero tread is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing.

Now, with JConcepts, racers have the slick option straight out of the package. Released as a 60mm bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothies mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled tire carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the specialty surfaces like no other. The Smoothies include Dirt-Tech 60mm inserts which have made an immediate presence on the racing scene since their release. The identifiable gray color with custom sculpted features, are blended into the newly developed insert material which provide racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.

The JBRL Electric Series – Final Results

by Rich on October 22, 2014

image1JConcepts Team Drivers take the overall win in Mod 2wd and 4wd Buggy.

The 2014 JBRL season has come to a close, with 9 rounds of racing over 8 months covering the finest tracks in southern California. The competition was fierce with everyone gunning for a title in their respected classes. The series had an all time high of 400 entries at the first round with averaging 200+ each round.

The final round took us to the famous Hot Rod Hobbies in Santa Clarita, California. With 170 entries made for 22 heats and a very nice day. JConcepts drivers, Kevin Motter, Jimmy Barnett and Tyler Hicks were in attendance and all were in points contention. During the first round of qualifying Kevin struggled in both buggy and short course. In the second round of qualifying Kevin strapped it up taking the TQ in short course and only missing TQ in buggy by 5 tenths of a second, so the main events looked like good ones! The main events were run under the lights, during the short course main Kevin lead it from the start and pulled off a win. In the buggy main Kevin made a mistake that put him back to sixth, but he put out a blistering pace battling back to second. With those results Kevin won the tie breaker in buggy by just one point over Cody Turner and missed the short course championship by 3 points.

JCO2318A high-end item used for many years on the performance side of R/C racing is the chassis protective sheet. For years, drivers have hand-cut and custom fit their chassis with a clear material to protect the new chassis look and also providing a smooth or slick surface to decrease friction between chassis and dirt surfaces. JConcepts has hit the easy and glamour button at the same time and is now offering a precut and graphically pleasing chassis protective sheet for the iconic RC10 chassis layout. The large footprint covers the complete chassis, nose-piece and extends up the rear of the chassis wrapping around the screws for the most coverage possible. With 2 pieces included per package, the durable and low-resistance material fits each chassis layout like a glove and adds protection and style in one easy package.
