JConcepts remains committed to 1/10 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.
