JConcepts New Pre-mounted 1/8th Truck Tires

by Rich on May 22, 2013

JConcepts releases 2 new popular 1/8th truck tires in pre-mounted configuration.

Black Jackets

Success in 1/8th racing rests in having the correct tire at the proper time. The Black Jackets from JConcepts made their debut to success at the Dirt Nitro Challenge and Neobuggy events during the 2012 racing season. The Black Jackets, constructed from very small square pins, provide additional grip on loose conditions with a light amount of dust and debris across the surface. The tread spacing near the outside rows are slightly open allowing maximum flexibility to adhere to smooth and slick surfaces providing a reasonable flex contact patch. The crisp center bar construction provides a wall-like pattern of tread which provides additional forward bite and also resists some high-expansion wear associated with typical small pin tires.

The Black Jackets have a quick and nimble feel on the track which translates into quicker lap-times for the driver in certain conditions. During the 2012 Silver State Nitro Challenge, Ryan Maifield utilized the Black Jackets as his go to tire for the dusty conditions. The small pin construction made them ideal for the bumpy conditions while the center bar support allowed plenty of forward traction to climb up to a top spot on the podium. The Black Jackets inner ribbing features a repeated X-type ribbing which reduces the amount of tire expansion under power while still being soft and cushy for bumps and rutted sections. The new high-performance tire includes JConcepts “Force-1” inserts to finish off a successful package.

Features:
· JConcepts small tread, spread lug design
· Heavy center lug design for increased forward bite

· Tread spacing provides maximum flex for increased grip
· Available pre-mounted, green compound on either white or yellow wheels

Stackers

Speed, longevity and consistency describe the winning, fundamental elements of any 1/8th race or driver characteristics. The Stackers tire by JConcepts is a culmination of successful DNA from the highly popular Hybrids and Crowbars tire tread patterns. The Stackers reveal a heavy center lug design which are supported at the lower base with extra rib features and tiny fillets which provide a heavy forward gripping force. Directional slashes cut into the tread soften the lugs to absorb bumps and also increase the lug flexibility to accommodate loose conditions.

The outer rows are a medium to hefty size lug with alternating positioning to drive forward and side-bite while the Stacked rows actively react with one another to lower the overall wear of the tire. The side-lugs are finished off with a hard angle to ease the transition from forward to side-bite while maintaining a linear feel without edginess in the turns. The Stacker inner ribbing features a repeated X-type ribbing which reduces the amount of tire expansion under power while still being soft and cushy for bumps and rutted sections. The Stackers include JConcepts “Force-1” inserts to finish off an extraordinary tire.

The Stackers in the hands of JConcepts / Team Associated driver Ryan Maifield have already TQ’ed the buggy class at 2012 ROAR Off-Road Fuel Nationals in Oakland Mills, PA and took a quick 30 minute victory at the 2012 JConcepts Clash in Flowood, Mississippi. The Stackers are the real deal when it comes to extended main events and conditions which require speed and longevity.

Features:
· JConcepts Stacked / Hybrid type design
· Heavy center lug design for increased forward bite
· Ideal spacing for performance, traction and wear
· Super aggressive tread including stacked features
· Available pre-mounted, green compound on either white or yellow wheels
· Tires available in Medium (Yellow), Soft (Blue), Super Soft (Green), Mega Soft (Black) compounds
· Include light-weight and durable “Force-1” inserts
