JConcepts New Release – 4mm Lock Nuts

by Rich on June 12, 2014

JCO2341-1_altJConcepts has your 4mm wheel nut needs covered with the large flange serrated wheel nut set.

These high precision wheel nuts are designed with a large flanged area for additional support against the wheel and serrated for locking security. The large flange and clamping surface area supports the wheel and helps maintain geometry during flex and load. The larger area also provides more footing for the serrated area which provides a more comfortable lock-down. The JConcepts wheel nuts are light-weight and intended for use on the RC10B5, RC10B5M along with most Traxxas vehicles. The 4mm wheel nut is quickly becoming a new industry standard in 1/10th vehicles and securing the wheel gives that all important peace of mind.

With over 120 entries and a very deep field including the current Australian Champion (and 2014 Reedy Race Invitee) Josh Pain.

An awesome track on the edge of the desert with a fantastic clay surface that grooved up nicely through the weekend. We started off with green Rips / Flip Outs but by finals we were using Blue Bar Codes with Dirt-Tech inserts.

2014 Spring Shootout

by Rich on June 2, 2014

Garrison WinThis past weekend Fastlane Raceway hosted the 2014 Spring Shootout in Blue Springs, Missouri. The weather was hot, and the racing was hotter! TLR/JConcepts driver, Mike Garrison, entered the largest class of the weekend, 1:8 Expert E-Buggy running the Team Losi Racing 8IGHT-E 3.0 equipped with Green Hybrids.

As the single A-Main got under way Garrison found himself in a three-way battle for the lead. He worked his way to the front battling for the lead with XRAY team driver Spencer Wall. The TLR machine led a majority of the race until Wall made a surprise last lap pass heading into a big double section. Garrison retaliated with an over-the-top big air pass with less than a few corners to go, capturing the overall 1:8 Expert E-Buggy class win!
