"Double Dees" unleashed - First Big race, first Big win.

JConcepts Racing Tires made their debut at the 2007 Nitro Challenge in Surprise, AZ. In the hotly contested 45 minute A-main event, Ryan Maifield made it a debut to remember by winning the Pro Gas Truck class A-main with his Associated GT2 running on JConcepts "Double Dees" tires in Sticky Green Compound.

In 1/8th scale buggy, Maifield also blitzed the track in Round 2 of qualifying with his Associated RC8 by laying down a TQ run using the 1/8th scale version of the "Double Dees". That qualifying run set panic throughout the pits forcing everyone to adjust their selections for round 3.

JConcepts driver Ryan Maifield stated:

"You can tell if a tire is going to work on the first lap and especially in 1/10th scale and gas truck in particular. While in the lead with 2 minutes to go when I heard the race announcer say I had my fastest lap in the entire 45 minute A-main, I was impressed!

JConcepts President Jason Ruona stated:

"I have been fascinated with R/C tires since I started racing in 1991. I've driven in 3-IFMAR Worlds A-main finals and been a Pro driver since 1994. Great drivers can make a lot of products look good; tires are not one of those products."

Although, the first major event for these tires, they have been under development for nearly a year. Rigorous testing by qualified drivers and designers make for ideal racing products. JConcepts - Will, Vision, Desire, Strength and Creativity.

Do you find yourself Wondering when to run the various JConcepts tire compounds?

Here is a quick article written by Frank Root, JConcepts Team Driver

JConcepts has been making tires for a few years now, but we are growing all the time. In the past year, there have been 3 new compounds introduced, so I though I’d take a minute to share a little about each, and highlight the conditions for which each would be ideal.

Green - It is the softest of the JC compounds. It is the best for wet dirt. If is similar to M3, but will wear considerably longer. The Double Dees work great on packed surfaces with a little loam and Goosebumps really shine on the loamier tracks, even if they go a little dryer. Groovy and Rounder fronts in green work well in both conditions.

Blue - The medium-soft compound is the softest compound we have for 1/8 scales, and 2nd softest for 1/10. It works best for wet, loamy 1/8 conditions. The blue 1/10 tires are currently the Bar Codes, which work great on “Blue Groove” condition that don’t reach super high traction(little to no dust on hard packed dry dirt).

Gold - The indoor compound works great on any type of indoor dirt, but are awesome on clay. The tread does not barely wear, and has great grip. The tires also make for awesome slicks, if the track calls for it. The compound was tested and developed on tracks in the Northeast and even OCRC in CA.

Yellow - The harder of the 1/8 compounds, work great in many conditions. On any hard packed track, with loam on top or not, the yellows really hook up. You will also get great wear out of these tires because they are not sliding around with all the traction they create. The Yellow Crow Bow Combo (Crow Bar Fronts, Cross Bow Rears) in yellow is my 1/8 tires setup of choice at most tracks.

Orange - The newest compound to the JC line-up. Only for 1/10 as of now, Orange comes only the Bar Code tread. It was designed and tested for the highest traction “blue groove” conditions, like those seen at the Hot Rod Hobbies Off-Road Shootout and the Cactus Classis. They actually debuted at the Cactus Classic with Ryan Maifield winning 2wd and Truck Modified. Lee Martin, Kody Numendalh, Steven Hartson, and I all made at least one A-Main using the tires as well. They work very well, creating a bit more traction than some of the others without wearing faster.

White - The hardest of the 1/10 Compounds works great on the super high bite “blue groove” surfaces. I really prefer them on Truck and 2wd fronts, to complement Orange rears. The wear is exceptional, and it is the perfect balance of speed and ease of driving.

Flip Outs (fits 2.2″ buggy rear wheel)

It’s not just a name; it’s a driver’s reaction. Flip Outs are here, giving drivers that tire in-between the Goose Bumps and Double Dees they have asked for. A very small pin construction makes up the foundation for the Flip Outs design and gives the grip when racers need it most. When the conditions are wet and green in the morning, traction is sometimes hard to come-by; Flip Outs are the new choice.

Alternating center bar support provides the base for the forward traction while the small accommodating tapered pins provide the dig and flex under hard acceleration and cornering. Tire profile and interior ribbing design were all areas of focus while creating the combination of durability, functionality and performance.

Features:

Available in Super Soft Green compound

Compact tire body with crisp tread and separation

Aggressive alternating center bar support

Includes And-1 inserts

Profiled - 1/10th 4wd front insert - Firm - 2pc

Part # - 3202-1 (Fits all rear 2.2” 4wd front buggy tires)

4543-3204-1profiled.jpg

Profiled - 1/10th buggy rear insert - Firm - 2pc

Part # - 3206-1 (Fits all rear 2.2” rear buggy tires)

Tire inserts are one of the most critical aspects of 1/10th off-road racing. Racers have asked JConcepts for a firmer and more durable insert and after much deliberation the new JConcepts Profiled insert is ready. Having the insert with proper density for track conditions pays dividends to the racer and especially toward the end of races. Starting on too firm an insert, the driver feels “on edge” during the first run or subsequent runs on a set of inserts. Starting on too soft an insert, the driver’s vehicle is not responsive enough or runs the risk of too much insert breakdown during the tail end of a tires life which creates a squirmy or inconsistent feel. Having the feel that is just right requires a bit of balance of durability and hardness. To add to the construction and performance, JConcepts has added cut / grooves into the profile of the inserts to add an even greater driver to track feel. JConcepts is just right and always on target with the new Profiled insert.

JConcepts team driver Steven Hartson states “Jason introduced these new inserts to me for testing and I have been running them ever since. Straight out of the package they were the best accessory item for 1/10th off-road I have seen in years. I have re-used them several times in my gold compound Bar Codes that I use continually at indoor races and I have been the envy of fellow racers and competitors ever since.”

Features:

* Available for 1/10th buggy front, rear and 4wd front

* Superior firm density material and construction

* Ultra durable, no breakdown during racing

* Precise contoured manufacturing

* Insert longevity, can be reused

* Water resistant

* Dark blue color for easy identification

3054 Rips

Steering control and consistency is one of the most important aspects of 1/10th 2wd buggy racing. With the Rips front tire, JConcepts has optimized a 3 rib front tire design by altering the rib depth, attack angle and multiple radius corners to give 2wd racers a smooth new option. Tiny ribbing has been added on the upper sidewall to provide a fresh edge during hard and high impact corners. Already a high-performance tire the Rips in prototype form have been used to TQ at the Arizona State Championships and JConcepts Clash.

Features:

* Available in Soft (Blue), Super Soft (Green), and Indoor Soft (Gold) compounds.

* Compact tire body with optimized 3-rib design

* Sharp attack angle ribs with multiple radius corners

* Includes firm And-1 inserts

4543-3033barcodesv2.jpg

3033 - Bar Codes V2

The Code of Silence has been broken at JConcepts, and the Bar Codes V2 tires are out. The Bar Code design is the freshest new tire design from JConcepts racing development and regardless of class and scale the Bar Codes = top notch performance. Like the name suggests the alternating bar design combined with the addition of the Y side bars provide uncompromised support for blue and black groove conditions as well as wet track indoor conditions. Available in Soft, Super Soft and Indoor Soft compounds the Bar Codes are a specialty tire that when matched to the appropriate track can provide amazing results.

The Bar Codes are a part of the JConcepts special breed of tire, designed for maximum performance when new or used as the design allows even wear all the way down to the tire body. Bar Codes in new condition excel on hard surfaces that have taken rubber with either dry or wet grooved conditions. Worn Bar Codes excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks where a minimal dust groove has formed.

JConcepts now has the ultimate 1, 2 punch by offering the V1 and V2 Bar Codes in a variety of compounds for tuning precision.

Features:

* Available in Soft (Blue), Super Soft (Green), and Indoor Soft (Gold) compounds.

* Compact tire body with crisp tread and separation

* Aggressive Bar Code design

* Includes firm And-1 inserts
