JConcepts – New 1/8th Buggy Tire Releases

by Rich on March 8, 2011

JConcepts official release of 2 new race winning tire designs debuted at the IFMAR Worlds.

Hybrids are already a successful tire dominating at events such as the CRCRC Midwest Championships and the popular Motorama event. The 3Ds were the hottest tire on the slick groove surface at the recent JConcepts Clash where Ryan Maifield TQ’ed in convincing fashion.

3Ds
Straight-out of the JConcepts Third Dimension are the creatively designed 3Ds race tire. Debuted at the IFMAR World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand, the 3Ds designed by Jason Ruona and tested by the JConcepts Team are a first of their kind. Developed to be the ultimate Slick-groove tire, the 3Ds are a first to combine the high-stability design of a black groove bar tire into an individually flexible pattern of finely spaced Double Dee lugs in one package. 3Ds include the Profiled (closed cell) insert design featuring the unique, highly durable material, bright blue color and revolved cuts which provide extra full support, stability and cushion.

The roots of the 3Ds design came after extensive research and development over a period of 2 racing seasons. As racing on both indoor and outdoor conditions have matured, a more flexible, supremely grippy tire design was necessary to drive the edgy, fast pace. The 3Ds slide in as a new, highly sought after, favorite in these conditions.

3Ds excel on indoor and outdoor hard packed surfaces with either dry or wet conditions. Drivers will feel the immediate impact of the exclusive design and proprietary rubber compound as they rip around the track at blistering speeds. An all-out design for racing, pure JConcepts.

Hybrids
A combination of years of development with JConcepts drivers; the Hybrids are all the rage and the combination of the most popular JConcepts tires available. A mid-lug design with unique inner Crowbar center lug DNA, the Hybrid is built for speed and ultimate high-speed control and handling. Supported lug control and X-braced sidewall lug detail is designed to go the distance in long qualifiers, final main events and beyond.

Continuous testing showed a smaller pin height being an advantage in many conditions and particularly when sharp angles and edges arise in the track surface. At the base of the design, the new mid-height lug presents the compound to the racing surface while the center lug DNA picks up the heavy lifting for forward-bite. Hybrids include the Profiled (closed cell) insert design featuring the unique, highly durable material, bright blue color and revolved cuts which provide extra full support, stability and cushion.

Hybrids excel on indoor and outdoor hard packed surfaces with either dry or wet conditions. Drivers will feel the immediate impact of the exclusive design and proprietary rubber compound as they rip around the track at blistering speeds. The Hybrids are a contender straight out of the package, an all-out design for racing, pure JConcepts.
