JConcepts 1/8th Diamond Bars

 

JConcepts New Release – 1/8th Diamond Bars



JCO3112JConcepts arrived loaded to the IFMAR World Championships with a variety of fresh product. First to show, the Diamond Bar, named after the shape and longer horizontal bar, this tire has shown incredible wear on hard surfaces and blends consistency with speed and durability. The Diamond Bars have a dual stage, tapered design which allows for exponentially less wear over time. The surprisingly blunt forward bite combined with a neutral steering characteristic make the tire easy to drive and highly capable.

Taking top honors at the 2015 Nitro Challenge in the Pro buggy class showed the versatility of the new design. As the track deteriorated and slowed down each day, the Diamond Bars rose to the occasion. Ryan Maifield mounted fresh Diamond Bars with included Dirt-Tech inserts for the 1/8th E-buggy A-main. Maifield quickly turned a back row starting position into a podium within only several minutes of action, the Diamond Bars were the ticket. Maifield immediately noticed the smooth performance and outright speed that he desired and the Diamond Bars brought him to victory in the 45 minute nitro final.

All new tires will include the latest insert from JConcepts. The Dirt-Tech insert, popularized by its durable nature and gray color, will give customers the combo package they have been waiting for from JConcepts.

Features:
· JConcepts original tread, available in multiple compounds
· Horizontal diamond, dual stage design
· Tapered for exponentially less wear
· 83mm bead mounting size for 1/8th compatibility
· Carefully shaped carcass = forward traction
· Includes Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts

Team Associated race report

 

Tanner Denney piles up the wins at Dash for Cash



Club R/C, located in Houston, Texas, hosted their first annual Dash for Cash race. Tanner Denney made the trip from Arizona to represent Team Associated and JConcepts.

Tanner was in attendance racing his Team Associated RC10T5M Team Kit and RC10B5M Team Kit. With only one day of practice on the tricky Club R/C layout, Tanner had to be on point all weekend with his Team Associated rides. Along with only one day of practice, the organization also instituted four rounds of Rocket-round qualifying, which made things a little harder.

Denney went on to TQ every round of qualifying with his T5M, and go on to qualify second in 2WD Mod Buggy behind the former Reedy Race of Champions and National Champion Dustin Evans. In the mains, Denney was able to make it a perfect sweep in the Modified Truck class, winning every time he was on the track with his T5M. Domination!

In 2WD Buggy, Dustin Evans made Tanner work a little harder by winning A1, putting the pressure on Denney to win the next two mains to win the event. With that being said, the 19-year-old from Arizona was able to handle the pressure and win the next two main events and take the overall win in the prestigious 2WD Modified Buggy class!

The Dash For Cash event had teams set up for the money payout. The teams where picked by pairing the Top Qualifier of each class with the last place qualifier in the same class. Then the second-place qualifier was paired with the second-to-last qualifier, and so on. Tanner was not able to win the Team/ProAm event, but he was able to make new friends and fans in the process by giving his trophies and TQ plaque away to a young driver competing at the event, and in our eyes that's a win any day!

On behalf of Tanner Denney and Team Associated we want to thank Brandon and the crew at Club R/C for all the hard work and effort put into the event. We hope to see everyone at the races!

JConcepts 3-Gear Aluminum Motor Plate

 

JConcepts New Release – 3-Gear Aluminum Motor Plate



JCO2428-1Having available option parts for a popular vehicle makes the hobby more fun and interesting. JConcepts has rolled out a sweet looking replacement motor plate for the popular 3-gear transmission available for the B5M, T5M and SC5M vehicles. With the evolution of race tracks, high flying jumps are becoming the normal obstacle. It’s inevitable that a driver will have a miscue and challenge the rear-end durability of the vehicle. Your racing friends over at JConcepts have taken a lot into consideration while designing and developing a replacement motor plate.

Looking at the typical construction of the second operation processes on standard motor plates, it is easy to see why bending is sometimes an issue. The design team at JC have incorporated a honeycomb milling affect with placement more suited to surrounding geometry making the plate lightweight and very rigid in multiple directions. The honeycomb features add a 3D look especially as they remain natural aluminum while the rest is available black or blue in color. Slight chamfering on the 3mm thickness material allows the rather beefy plate to look quite skinny. Honeycomb it out with JConcepts.

Features:
· Precision machined aluminum
· Direct fit for 3-gear transmission
· Lightweight / durable honeycomb milling
· 3mm thickness material
· Chamfer highlight edging
· Available in blue and black colors
· Aesthetic jewelry
