JConcepts orders ‘Smoothies’ for all!

JConcepts orders ‘Smoothies’ for all! Smoothies 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. 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. 3109_800px 3109_800px_alt 3110_800px 3110_800px_alt 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.

Miskolczi fights to win at Fall Brawl Brian Miskolczi The 3rd Annual Fall Brawl Trophy Race took place earlier this month at Awesome RC Hobbies in Fredericksburg, Virginia. TLR team driver, Brian Miskolczi jumped head first into the brawl racing all three 1/8 classes (Nitro Buggy, Nitro Truggy, E-Buggy). Miskolczi wrapped up TQ in both Nitro Buggy and Nitro Truggy after qualifying, but a DNF would ruin his chance at Buggy class win. He set out for redemption, as he walked away from the field and went on to win the brawl in Nitro Truggy!

Tessmann talks ‘Trifecta’ lexan wing
about 33 hours ago
Tessmann talks ‘Trifecta’ lexan wing   Debuting at the IFMAR 1:8 Nitro World Championships in Italy with World Championship results, Pro-Line’s 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing has officially been released. From the mind of World Champion and Pro-Line Team Driver Ty Tessmann, the new 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of your buggy and massively lowers your cars center of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions. 6252-00 The 1:8 Trifecta Lexan wing design follows the tradition set by the 1:10 Buggy Wing and features 3 strengthening ribs and 3 dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” under the wing for added down force and reduced high speed drag. New to the 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing is the center fin piece that adds more side stability to your car and strength around the mounting holes. Carried over from the Molded Trifecta Wing, the Trifecta Lexan Wing includes 2 optional wickerbills (Small & Large) that allow you to tune the performance and downforce of the wing to your liking. The wickerbill also adds strength across the whole back portion of the wing, adding durability. Source: Pro-Line Racing
