JConcepts race report

 

2014 JBRL Nitro Round 4



During the weekend of July 25-26, the JConcepts team made a quick trip to Chula Vista, CA for the competitive JBRL nitro series. Ryan Maifield debuted his TLR 1:8th vehicles to a smashing success by TQing all 3 classes of Pro competition. The JConcepts equipped TLR vehicles had the fastest laps and overall times in both nitro classes to edge the likes of Drew Moller, Adam Drake, Cody King and Ryan Cavalieri. Hybrids in blue compound on the buggy and Stackers in blue on the truggy provided an immediate grippy feel on the somewhat wet Heritage Park R/C surface.

With a fresh set of tires mounted in the 1:8th truck class, Maifield sprung out of the gate quickly and opened a lead over TLR team mate Adam Drake. A small mistake by Drake allowed Ryan to pull away from the field and attempt his first pit stop. With the crew getting him in and out at around the 9:30 mark, Ryan still had plenty of work to do to remain in the lead. Pushing the truck and allowing the Stackers to dig in, Ryan put down some NovaRossi power and gapped the 2nd place driver enough to cautiously cruise home to a stellar result. A finishing splash and go on fuel gave the pits a little relief as Ryan cruised the last 2 minutes still running mid 37 second laps to the finish line.

Thanks to Jimmy Babcock, Heritage R/C Park and the many volunteers that brought out the best in 1:8th competition.

JConcepts Dirt Webs in Red compound

 

JConcepts new release - Dirt Webs in Red compound

Debuted at the 2014 Cactus Classic, the JConcepts Red Compound was the speedy compound used with success in the modified and stock classes. The new outdoor compound labeled as “soft - outdoor” works alongside the blue, however, it is much more friendly in warm / hot conditions as seen at outdoor events. In the hot weather, red compound gets drivers up to speed quickly providing more stability and better reaction for quicker laps. The red is not a replacement for any compound but used as an alternative in warm and hot weather conditions and abrasive tracks.

About Dirt Webs –

During 2012, legendary tire builder, Brian Kinwald, came up with a hand-made tire design. After testing at indoor tracks around the country, qualifying results during the 2012 Hot Rod Shootout and working together with JConcepts designer Jason Ruona, the Dirt Webs tire was born. Production tire versions debuted during the 2013 IFMAR World Championships at Silver Dollar Raceway in Chico, CA, where Ryan Maifield used the front tire to his advantage during the A-Final events taking the fastest lap times on his way to a 3rd overall podium finish in the 2wd class.

The tread, originally based on the popular Pressure Points tire design connects uniformly positioned Web-Bars to create an amazingly stable tire. The Dirt Webs, the ultimate Bar-Tire, relies heavily on the Web-treatment for massive forward acceleration; however, the design does not stop there. Inside the supported bar portion rests horizontal and vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Web-Bars to help minimize wear. Down in the corners, small Pressure Point sized pins break-in quickly providing surface area for specialty indoor racing and also lend a helping hand to stabilize the tire in extreme high-grip conditions.

The outer edges feature a single rib on each side which proves extra side-bite during heavy cornering and side-loading characteristics. The Dirt Web thread sits on the proven “Bar Code” tire carcass giving the tire a low-profile, wide-body appearance allowing clipped tread to extend all the way to the outer edges. The carefully shaped profile allows a great balance of monster forward traction and comfortable side-bite. Available in multiple compounds, the Dirt Webs can easily be matched to any track conditions ranging from indoor clay, indoor dirt to outdoor hard-packed or treated clay or dirt.

Features:
· JConcepts original tread, available in multiple compounds
· Designed in conjunction with Brian Kinwald and Jason Ruona
· Connected Web-bars for stability / forward grip
· Horizontal and vertical bars for side-bite
· Pressure Point pins adds surface area
· 2.2” bead mounting size for compatibility
· Carefully shaped carcass = forward traction
· Includes firm And-1 foam inserts
