JConcepts Hybrids 1/8-scale Truggy Tires

Oct 05, 2011 No Comments by

JConcepts has officially released their new truggy tires that Ryan Maifield used to dominate the 2011 Alabama Manufacturers Shootout. Check out the press release below:

A combination of years of development with JConcepts drivers; the Hybrids are all the rage and the combination of the most popular JConcepts tires available. A mid-lug design with unique inner Crowbar center lug DNA, the Hybrid is built for speed and ultimate high-speed control and handling. Supported lug control and X-braced sidewall lug detail is designed to go the distance in long qualifiers, final main events and beyond.

Adapted for the 1/8th truck class featuring the Elevated Bead design. Light-weight continuous tire body design minimizes rotating mass which makes the 1/8th truck Hybrid a dynamite performer straight out of the package. Extensive testing showed a smaller pin height advantageous in many conditions and particularly when sharp angles and edges arise in the track surface. At the base of the design, the new mid-height lugs present the compound to the racing surface while the center lug DNA picks up the heavy lifting for forward-bite.

An immediate winner, the Hybrids in the hands of Ryan Maifield TQ’ed and won the 2011 Alabama Manufacturers Shootout. With 460 strong entries on-hand a 45 minute main event was no issue for the Hybrids, going the distance and then some. Impressive durability, great traction and winning results in a debut performance. Look out for the Hybrids, a contender straight out of the package, an all-out design for racing, pure JConcepts.
