Profiled 1/10th buggy inserts

Tire inserts are one of the most critical aspects of 1/10th off-road racing. Racers have asked JConcepts for a firmer and more durable insert and after much deliberation the new JConcepts Profiled insert is ready. Having the insert with proper density for track conditions pays dividends to the racer and especially toward the end of races. Starting on too firm an insert, the driver feels “on edge” during the first run or subsequent runs on a set of inserts. Starting on too soft an insert, the driver’s vehicle is not responsive enough or runs the risk of too much insert breakdown during the tail end of a tires life which creates a squirmy or inconsistent feel. Having the feel that is just right requires a bit of balance of durability and hardness. To add to the construction and performance, JConcepts has added cut / grooves into the profile of the inserts to add an even greater driver to track feel. JConcepts is just right and always on target with the new Profiled insert.

JConcepts team driver Steven Hartson states “Jason introduced these new inserts to me for testing and I have been running them ever since. Straight out of the package they were the best accessory item for 1/10th off-road I have seen in years. I have re-used them several times in my gold compound Bar Codes that I use continually at indoor races and I have been the envy of fellow racers and competitors ever since.”

Carvers for Short Course Trucks

JConcepts is assisting in making Short Course Trucks easier to drive. For the first several years of Short Course racing, the only option for tuning front tires on 2wd SCT trucks has been to use a rear tire. JConcepts is the first to introduce the Carvers directional ribbed front tire to Short Course Racing. The advantage of the Carvers tire is the ability to tune steering response by utilizing a radial rib to present the tire compounds to the racing surface. Typically, ribbed tires net a less aggressive and more predictable front end response which can ultimately deliver faster and more consistent races. With the 2.2” x 3.0” design, the large sidewall retains the realism of the class while providing an additional tuning option.

The Carvers front tire is perfect for a variety of track surfaces. The sharp angular and directional ribs provide the ultimate in control and direction on the most common dry and wet condition surfaces. The compact tire body combined with the JConcepts firm profiled inserts allow for precise steering input and response for the most consistent laps times available.

Carvers in new condition excel on low traction surfaces as well as high “loamy” traction and wet surfaces where no rubber has been taken into the racing surface. Worn Carvers excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks where a light blue groove has formed.


  • Available in Soft (Blue), Super Soft (Green), and Indoor Soft (Gold) compounds.
  • Compact tire body
  • Sharp angular and directional ribs with precise separation
  • Includes firm profiled “closed cell” inserts
