JConcepts: Dirt-Tech 60mm 1/10th Buggy Tire Inserts


JConcepts: Dirt-Tech 60mm 1/10th Buggy Tire Inserts

JConcepts Header

JConcepts has upped the ante with the release of the new 60mm Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts. Gray in color, the new inserts are designed in conjunction with tire insert guru, Brian “Dirt” Kinwald to bring the ultimate touch and feel while providing utmost durability. The 2wd | 4wd rear and 4wd front insert has alternating shallow and deep cuts on the outside which touch off against the tire inner carcass providing a cushy response and feel. The 2wd front insert has 3 relatively deep cuts spaced across the width giving a subtle feel to front tires for precise steering control. The inside has horizontal channels cut in a 360 pattern to soak up the large impacts and help create forward bite and increase acceleration.

The JConcepts design, with custom sculpted features, are blended into the newly developed material providing racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions. Testing has shown great results when used in these conditions and in popular tires such as 3D’s, Bar Codes and Dirt Webs. Most recently Michael Schoettler TQ’ed and won the Spring Indoor Nationals at Tacoma R/C Raceway in the 2wd modified class utilizing the Dirt-Tech inserts.

Avid: New B5/B5M Battery Thumbwheels


Avid: New B5/B5M Battery Thumbwheels

Avid

The B5 / B5M Battery Thumbwheels are a direct replacement for the stock blue thumbwheels. We decided to make this part because we felt the stock pieces could use some spicing up. Even though two of our thumbwheels equal the weight of a single stock thumbwheel, we don’t feel this is enough to qualify as a performance upgrade. Included are two orings so you won’t have to try and pry the others out of your stock pieces.

Features:

1) Aluminum anodized black with silver edge highlights and laser etched.

2) Half the weight of the stock thumbwheels.

3) Each package includes 2 Avid thumbwheels, 2 orings, and 1 Avid mini decal sheet.

Dustin Evans doubles at the 2014 Lunsford Race


Dustin Evans doubles at the 2014 Lunsford Race

Screen shot 2014-10-23 at 4.59.30 AM

On October 18th-19th, North West Hobbies hosted the 1st ever Lunsford Race in Albany, Oregon to celebrate one of the most influential individuals in the hobby today. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Kelly Lunsford or know about his history, check out this video below done by the BigRC or introduce yourself to Mr. Titanium himself. Like the metal, he’s no ordinary personality and after a quick chat you’ll come to realize what a stand up individual he is. Positive, light-hearted, and always willing to help, he’s given more to this sport than ever asked of and in many ways has inspired me to do the same with this website. If I can positively add to this sport in the slightest…. I’d have to thank guys like Kelly Lunsford for leading the way. He is a true gem and we are so very lucky to have him in our community.

XRAY: Alexander Hagberg reports from the 2014 IIC


XRAY: Alexander Hagberg reports from the 2014 IIC

XRAY LOGO

The 10th annual International Indoor Championships was held at the Riviera Hotel & Casino located on the Las Vegas strip. More than 400 entries (it’s biggest entry count in a while) split in many different classes joined the race. The temporary carpet track laid out was a bit bigger than the previous years as well. Grip levels rose quickly and got very high, with a nice black groove.

Many drivers, myself included, had travelled directly from the World Championship events in Florida that previous week, which made things a bit hectic. However, as I arrived in Vegas on the Monday before the race, I managed to get my T4 and X12 cars ready for racing.

JConcepts: Smoothies 1/10th Off-Road Slick Tires


JConcepts: Smoothies 1/10th Off-Road Slick Tires

JConcepts Header

JConcepts remains committed to 1/10th off-road racing by releasing the Smoothies. In some conditions in off-road racing, there is no denying that a slick tire is the fastest way around the track. Throughout the racing calendar year, there are several tracks where slicks in gold compound are the go-to tire. In damp weather, indoor clay surfaces become so tacky that the lower the tread or to the point of zero tread is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing.

Now, with JConcepts, racers have the slick option straight out of the package. Released as a 60mm bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothies mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled tire carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the specialty surfaces like no other. The Smoothies include Dirt-Tech 60mm inserts which have made an immediate presence on the racing scene since their release. The identifiable gray color with custom sculpted features, are blended into the newly developed insert material which provide racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.

Screen shot 2014-10-22 at 6.08.05 PM

After completely mounting the tires to wheels, it is recommended to scuff the slick tires with sandpaper or scouring pad to have a slightly dull or rough finish to begin practice or racing.

Features:

· JConcepts design and function
· Designed in conjunction with Brian Kinwald and Jason Ruona
· 60mm or 2.4” bead mounting size
· Carefully shaped carcass = rolling speed
· Includes 60mm Dirt-Tech (gray) inserts
