2012 Dirt Nitro Challenge: JConcepts Debuts New Products

Mar 02, 2012 No Comments by

JConcepts debuted six new products at the 2012 Dirt Nitro Challenge this past weekend. These products range from 1/10 short course tires and options parts, to new gear for your 1/8 nitro buggy. Check out the press release below for all the details:

First up is the soon to be released 3Ds Short Course Tire. As racing on both indoor and outdoor conditions has evolved, a more flexible, supremely grippy tire design was necessary to drive the edgy, fast pace in mixed conditions. The 3Ds slide in as a new, highly sought after favorite in these conditions. 3Ds excel on indoor and outdoor hard packed surfaces with either dry or wet conditions. Drivers will feel the immediate impact of the exclusive design and proprietary rubber compound as they rip around the track at blistering speeds.

3Ds – green compound (SCT)
Part # – 3061-02
(fits SCT 3.0″ x 2.2″ wheel)

A Finnisher body for both the Team Associated RC8.2 and Kyosho MP9 made a debut incorporating all the popular features from the 1/10th off-road counterparts raced during the IFMAR world championships in Finland. The Finnisher 1/8th bodies have a unique shape and design which allow more escape paths for air flow along with including one of the more aggressive cabs in its class. The rear of the body has the Finnisher V-stepped treatment near the rear of the body giving another location for increased force and air flow escape. The side-pods have all been tightened up along the chassis guards eliminating any possible large voids which contribute to mid-air directional changes.

Illuzion – Kyosho MP9 – Finnisher body
Part # – 0229
(Fits Kyosho MP9 line)

Illuzion – RC8.2 – Finnisher body
Part # – 0230
(Fits Team Associated RC8.2 buggy)

The Black Jackets are inspired from the most successful JConcepts 1/8th buggy tire, the Hybrids. Using the Hybrid center lug DNA incorporates increased over-lapping, to help maintain a steady center structure for increased forward traction and wear characteristics. All the pins on the Black Jackets are scaled down on the outside and opened up slightly for the ultimate slick or sandy track performance.

Black Jackets – green compound
Part # – 3064-02
(fits all 1/8th buggy wheels)

Next is the new SC10 Monroe Carbon Fiber Battery Brace. This new item from JConcepts will allow you to securely hold your battery in your SC10 with room for adjustments, all in style. Another new Carbon Fiber part making its debut at the Nitro Challenge is the SC10 Rear Body Mount Brace. This brace will help stiffen up the rear posts on your SC10 and prevent the body from twisting while on the track, helping to keep the body off the tires.

JConcepts – SC10 Monroe Carbon Fiber battery brace
Part # – 2163
(compatible with all Team Associated SC10 models)

JConcepts – SC10 rear body mount brace
Part # – 2164

Working on your vehicles is just as important as how you drive them. The new Striker setup board w/ foam pad will certainly make you the Pit Boss. JConcepts’ primary focus is always on performance and adjustments such as ride height, camber and toe are some of the most critical adjustments. Having a portable, convenient and flat working surface allows a driver to make necessary pit adjustments with speed, consistency and accuracy. The setup board has JConcepts written all over it with a brilliant Striker logo on top for the most decorated finish. The bottom can be outfitted with the included foam pad which adds depth, work space and a flexible footing for irregular surfaces. Cleaning, maintaining and setting up any vehicle is important to performance, choose the Striker Setup Board from JConcepts.

JConcepts – 1/10th, 1/8th and SCT Striker setup board w/ foam pad
Part # – 2102
(compatible with all 1/10th, 1/8th and SCT vehicles)
