JConcepts Swaggers and Pin Downs for SCT

The Swagger SCT front tire has a multitude of heights and angular ribs for cornering speed, consistency and straight-line tracking ability. The Swagger has shown to produce ultrafast lap times while also being easier to drive than other options on the market. The front tires are designed for the industry standard SCT wheels which are already available from JConcepts with part numbers 3344 (AE) and 3352 (TLR). The Swaggers work best on Carpet and Astroturf tracks where the racing line requires an aggressive style front tire.

JConcepts re-invents the pin style tire with the release of the Pin Downs. The Pin Downs feature a pin spiked tread, which is directional for added performance and stability. The directional nature of the pins was positioned to allow broken-in type pins to grip the surface in one direction, while the pins are more upright when oriented in the opposite direction. The bottoms of the pins have heavy radiuses which allow the pins to wear more consistently and not tear or rip off the carcass prematurely. The tires are designed for the industry standard SCT wheels, available from JConcepts with part numbers 3344 (AE) and 3352 (TLR).

JConcepts enters the touring car racing genre with the new A-One body.

JConcepts has packed all the necessary goods into one package with the new L1 body.

The “Layla” body looks impressive with its low-slung appearance and complete chassis coverage. The L1 fits on the Team Associated, Formula 1 RC10F6 along with other popular models such as XRAY and Yokomo. A front chin spoiler starts the design for improved steering response and front-end grip.

F2 for Xray XB4 2017

Cleverly named, F2, the unique design quickly raised some eyebrows during competition and proved effective on the ground and in the air. Designed with aspects learned from the original Finnisher bodies, the F2 provides an even more aggressive look with included details which remain crucial to performance. The F2 body is a drop fit for the popular XRAY XB4 2017 buggy.

With the evolution of race tracks, complicated circuits combining more aggressive jumps and extremely high-speed corners, JConcepts incorporated many features which provide several benefits in the most critical situations. Increased windshield angle provides a steady force upfront during mid-flight wind gusts on large jumps. Forward cab placement changes performance / visible bias which help steering rotation in low traction corners.

JConcepts Teazers for 1/8th scale

The Teazer tire by JConcepts is fresh to the competitive world of 1/8th buggy racing and packs features never seen before. Packed with over 2000 individual pins, the Teazer uses a multi-height and width pin system to incorporate the dense pin count. The square based, angular lugs alternate in height and width to connect with a track surface by allowing the taller pins to reach deep and contour with the terrain. The shorter pins stiffen the base, add surface area and provide increased longevity for long main events.

JConcepts started this design with conditions in mind that were very typical of 1/8th off-road. Dusty, bumpy and sometimes wet and dry areas make this form of racing the most difficult to tame and the Teazers have all the ingredients. The tires feel to the touch much like a field of grass, the individual blades of tire tread grip independently to form the ultimate low traction or slick groove condition tire.

Features:
· JConcepts original tread, available in multiple compounds
· Strategically placed and innovative pin heights
· Tiny blades of tread, dense assortment
· 83mm bead mounting size for 1/8th compatibility
· Carefully shaped carcass = forward traction
· Includes Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts

The Tire Balancer

In racing, you can never be too precise, specifically with tires where the separation can be ever so slight. JConcepts now offers a tire balancer for 1/10th and 1/8th tires and wheel combinations. The all aluminum and steel design blends nicely into any pit area and comes set in a storage box for protection and travel convenience. The collapsible design rests in a lay-down configuration but pivots to a 90 degree stance and locks when in usable condition.

Notes – The JConcepts Racing Team uses a modeling clay for balancing material which is readily available through hobby based retailers.

S2 Body for the TLR 8ight-E 4.0

It was time to turn the page on some design aspects and stylize the TLR 8ight-E 4.0 with a completely new design. The S2 design, originally made popular for the 1/10th off-road crowd, had a lot of influence over this design. In a chat with chief drivers JR Mitch, Tyler Jones and Reno Savoya, the S2 was suddenly born.

The S2 sports a forward cab, a low-profile stance with channeled roof and rear stabilizing fin. The front of the pods have deep pocketed, “force-bars” which have shown to channel some air in a much-needed forward position while also providing a more rigid feel to the body. The L.P. side-pods whisk over the electrical and step where necessary, but it’s the rear wicker section that improves rear-end grip and tightens up the handling.

Features:
· Original – JConcepts S2 design
· Drop-fit design, balanced aero characteristics
· Low-profile cab and side-pods
· Functional “force-bars” and stabilizing rib
· Clear polycarbonate with protective film
· Window masks and Silencer decal sheet

J21 Javelin F1 body for Team Associated F6

Formula One cars are the fastest road course racing cars in the world, owing to very high cornering speeds achieved through the generation of large amounts of aerodynamic down force. At JConcepts, we love a challenge and the design and development of the J21 body specifically for the RC10F6, was just that. A fresh slate, a new mindset and a hardcore racing attitude took the design team on a trip in to on-road glory.

The concentration of design aspects include a tight fit around the front suspension and main chassis shape. The J21, fits like a top-shelf race body including coverage over the motor and rear axle. The bottom-plate is inventive and helps rear down force in a way that lends itself to a 2017 design. The driver compartment is low-profile with the driver tucked away for the quickest stance possible. The driver helmet is formed separately providing a light-weight alternative to heavy injected molded plastic used on other models. The design allows for easy painting and detailing of the helmet while the cockpit is accessible enough for decals.

Features:
· JConcepts design and function
· Low-profile, tight and sleek design
· Bottom-plate addition for added force
· Deep, drivers cockpit
· Light-weight drivers helmet
· Upper stabilizing fin
· Recessed areas for vents or decals
· Detailed J21 “Javelin” decal sheet

Dirt Maze in Blue Compound

The big brother to the Webs, the Dirt Maze tire is designed specifically for the outdoor conditions where the track has been treated or left dry. Built around the foundation of other successful JConcepts tires, the Dirt Maze has some depth and girth built into the design. Starting with thicker, connected webbing, the hot outdoor tire provides a continuous edgy contact patch needed for driving outdoors and at high-speed.

The center X section delivers the comfort with the forward bite and the slightly slotted portions allow some flexibility for stability over terrain. Resting inside the hefty X patterns, horizontal and vertical pins help minimize wear and add some surface area for longer qualifiers and main events. Moving toward the outside of the tire, the alternating bar concept, used on V2 Bar Codes work their magic to support the side-load during heavy cornering at the end of straight-aways and sweeping corners. Breaking up the alternating bars, an added horizontal bar blends deeply into the side-wall for balancing forward to side traction considerations.

Features:
· JConcepts original tread, available in multiple compounds
· Designed in conjunction Jason Ruona, Brian Kinwald and Ryan Maifield
· Hefty X-patterns with alternating bar support
· Horizontal and vertical bars for side-bite
· 2.2” bead mounting size for compatibility

JConcepts Rehabs for 1/8th Scale

Fresh out of the development lab, the ReHab tires are the latest tire for 1/8th buggy racing. Based on its larger cousin, the Detox, the ReHab tire brings all the details of a successful tire into a smaller tread package for smoother track conditions, consistent racing and high-end performance. Simply put, if you like the Detox, you’ll love the performance of the ReHab.

The design revolves around the center structure which has medium-sized, dense lugs arranged in a stacked configuration. The lugs have strategically placed cuts and grooves to allow flex in dusty conditions to perform even if the track is deteriorating in a long main. The outer portion of the tread fits together like building blocks, with shapes placed together that nest well but also work together to flex laterally to provide steadfast side-bite. The tread tapers off cleanly to the outer side-wall giving a smooth transition during hard cornering.

JConcepts – Yokomo YZ-2 Elephant Trunk Style Chassis Brace (Shapeways)

JConcepts has added a new item to the Shapeways store for Yokomo YZ-2 owners using a laydown transmission. The Elephant Trunk style chassis brace replaces the stock unit and is more flexible than the stock piece. Given today’s racing and the desire for more traction while utilizing the laydown transmission, JConcepts spent design time and racer time with top racers for an alternative without giving up on stock mounting locations or geometry. The chassis brace also includes an extended ledge which minimizes the issue associated with the standard battery brace popping out during hard landings and crashes.

The gear shield is a protection device that adds some protection to the spur gear while also shielding the body from unwanted scratches and rubs associated with normal driving use and wear and tear during a typical race outing. The shield is designed for a maximum spur gear size of 81 and works best with JConcepts S2 and F2 bodies.

 

S3 Body For Team Associated RC8B3

To deliver a quick attack, look no further than the Strike 3 body for the RC8B3. The hottest new 1/8th buggy has captured the market with performance and reliability that deserves an equally striking body. The Strike 3 body samples elements from its famous relatives the Finnisher, Silencer and Striker bodies but packs a slightly refined image. Used in prototype form by Spencer Rivkin and Ryan Cavalieri during the IFMAR World Championships, the Strike 3 was successful the first event out.

The base enhancements to the design come from the parallel to chassis side-pods, that look traditional with 1/8th buggies of the past. A large rear-end winglet has been added to aid in the rear traction stability as well as stopping force. Impressions during testing and racing at the World Championships were extremely positive leaving the Strike 3 as one of the front runners heading into the A-final event. It all finishes with a drop-fit design which wraps the B3’s chassis layout like a glove.

Features:
· JConcepts Strike 3 design
· Drop-fit design, balanced aero characteristics
· Large rear-end winglet for stability
· Hard-edge, spill off side-pods
· Clear polycarbonate with protective film
· Window masks and Striker decal sheet
