JConcepts Releases 1/10 Buggy 3Ds Tires And Inverse Hex Wheels, Plus 3mm Plastic Nuts

Apr 25, 2012 2 Comments by

JConcepts now offers their popular 3Ds tread pattern for 1/10 buggies, plus they have released Inverse 12mm hex wheels and 3mm plastic nuts.  Read all the details in the press release below:

Straight-out of the JConcepts Third Dimension are the creatively designed 3Ds 1/10th buggy race tire. Debuted at the IFMAR World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand for the 1/8th buggy class, the 3Ds designed by Jason Ruona and tested by the JConcepts Team are a first of their kind. Developed to be the ultimate Slick-groove tire, the 3Ds are a first to combine the high-stability design of a black groove bar tire into an individually flexible pattern of finely spaced Double Dee lugs in one package. 3Ds include the And-1 insert.

The roots of the 3Ds design came after extensive research and development over a period of 2 racing seasons. As racing on both indoor and outdoor conditions have matured, a more flexible, supremely grippy tire design was necessary to drive the edgy, fast pace. The 3Ds grip 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. An all-out design for racing, pure JConcepts.

Features:

  • Available in Soft (Blue) and Super Soft (Green) and Outdoor Soft (Orange) compounds
  • Compact tire body, high stability, individually flexible lugs
  • Aggressive, supremely grippy feel
  • Includes And-1 inserts

Inverse 12mm hex wheels
JConcepts is rocking the world once again with the debut of the Inverse, 2-piece 12mm hex wheel for the B4.1 and B44.1. The 2-piece design provides several benefits for maximum performance and ease of use. The inner wheel comes standard in a stealth, black matte finish providing the driver a look and feel never seen before. In addition, the inner wheel is designed as a completely smooth surface for the cleanest fit and finish which resists debris build-up. Previous industry standard designs with heavy ribbing have a tendency to catch debris which affects balance and weight and especially on surfaces with a lot of surface loam or loose dirt.

The outer dish, available in bright white or fluorescent yellow is creatively interlocked with the wheel and with the addition of inner screws and interior ribbing provide tuned rigidity. While utilizing the 4 screw combination from the inside, the Inverse wheel provides a stable and highly rigid wheel which allows the transfer of power through tire, wheel and insert minimizing overwhelming wheel flex characteristics. The Inverse wheel face also incorporates a user friendly wheel face shaped to promote a smoother gluing, wiping and drying experience. Wheels are branded with the JC logo for brand identification and authenticity. The Inverse wheel package forms a light-weight, clean design that is pure JConcepts style and function.

Secure the wheels to the vehicle, use only the included flanged steel locknuts for B4.1 / B44.1 or JConcepts #2075 (blue) #2076 (black) serrated wheel nuts. Flanged nuts completely cover the interlocking tabs located near the center of the wheel which correctly connects the 2-piece design. Using this wheel on any buggy requires a flanged lock-nut or washer to cover the center tab configuration.

Features:

  • Available in bright white and fluorescent yellow color combinations
  • Inner wheel comes standard in a stealth, black matte finish
  • 4 inner and outer wheel pieces with screws
  • Durable, light-weight material and design
