Jun 06, 2012 No Comments by

As we told you first back in March, JConcepts now offers their popular Hazard short course wheels in “Kinwald” yellow, plus they now also offer trick looking chassis weights with a carbon fiber appearance.  They have also officially released a B44.1 low profile aluminum wing mount and replacement glue tips.  Check out the press release below for all the details:

B44.1 low-profile aluminum rear wing mounts

Wing height is an important adjustment on all vehicles and remains important to jump and cornering characteristics. During the 2011 IFMAR World Championships, Ryan Maifield used a prototype lowered wing mount with success on his B44.1 buggy while taking the Top Qualifying position at the largest 1/10th off-road event in the world. JConcepts introduces the aluminum, low-profile, rear wing mount specifically for the B44 buggy, allowing the racer to lower the rear wing by a full 7mm.

The low-profile rear wing mount is machined from heavy-duty 6061 T6 aluminum to the exact and unique B44 specifications which allows for easy attachment, use and maintenance. The wing attachment platform maintains the stock angle and geometry and accepts the standard plastic wedge shim used to adjust tuning angle. The low-profile design gives the vehicle a more sleek appearance and maintains more consistent jump characteristics and during wind gust activity.

Features:

  • JConcepts styling and function
  • 7mm low-profile design
  • Closed-end design 4-40 treaded
  • Blue anodized aluminum
  • Aesthetic eye-candy

Hazard 12mm hex SC wheels now in yellow

Short Course trucks have evolved into high-performance racing vehicles and adjustability is always the key to success. Introducing the Hazard 12mm hex wheel for the SC10 4×4 and SC10 by JConcepts. A powerful new look that combines the winning combination of a 10 spoke design, bead-lock appearance and center lug nut detail with a hint of inspiration from yesteryear. The Hazard will make an immediate impact on the performance of the SC10 trucks by widening the stance of the truck by 6mm in overall width. The increased width will maximize the SC10 and bring it up to the ROAR maximum legal limits in dimensional width.

Already a champion, the Hazard wheel earned the top qualifying position and 1st place at the 2011 ROAR Off-Road Nationals in the Pro 2 modified class in the hands of Ryan Maifield. A dominating performance taking the TQ in the first 3 rounds of qualifying and 1st place in A-main #1 and 2 to take retain the title for JConcepts.

By nature, Short Course trucks have a high center of gravity and tend to feel light or tippy in high-speed sections. There is no better way to improve on-track stability than to add width, and with the Hazard wheels, sweeping through the high-speed corners gets a little easier. Wheel profile, interior and exterior ribbing and spoke design were all areas of focus while creating the combination of durability, clearance, functionality and appearance. With the black color and a matte face appearance, being unique is worry free as practically any paint scheme can be matched to these exciting new wheels. The hassle-free and lightweight 1-piece design creates the ultimate race and show wheel for any competition.

To use the 12mm hex wheel on the SC10 it requires JConcepts part # 2081 for the rear and the Team Associated inboard hub hex conversion for front.

Features:

  • Original 1:1 inspired JConcepts Hazard 12mm hex design
  • 3mm per side additional width in offset
  • Direct bolt-on fit for the SC10 4×4
  • Bolt-on fit for the SC10 with 12mm hex adaptors
  • Durable design, finish and material
  • Available in Black, White and Yellow with matte face appearance

Replacement glue straws

An accessory drivers never seem to have enough of in the pits are extra glue straws for the .7oz popular sized glue bottle.

  • Durable, long spout for easy trim or tune
