From the mind of Dennis Anderson, the wild and wooly King Sling was born. The ultimate Mega Truck, born in Poplar Branch, North Carolina, has a wild side, combining the brute power and durability of a monster truck with the madness of a mud racer. King Sling is a beast, and JConcepts has worked together with designers and builders to replicate this body shell to fit on a host of popular chassis including the Axial SMT10.
The slate was once again wiped clean and the form started to take shape in the computer to fit and finish on a selection of vehicles. A lot of hand dressing took place to ensure the details were correct on the shell itself, not to mention the iconic wing shape and rear scoop treatment. Fred “Freestyle” Reep sat shotgun on this project reviewing the style, shape and decal creation to ultimately please the man, the myth the legend, Dennis Anderson.
No superstar race machine would be complete without decoration. The King Sling is the first JConcepts body to include two decal sheets in the package that covers logos, signatures, flames and branding recognition. The product is formed in durable polycarbonate and includes painting window mask for ease of use. Fine detailing and trimming to the body shell comes from the purchasing enthusiast where the imagination and skill set takes over.
The three piece body design offers the highest quality in detail giving the builder several options, replicating the original King Sling or even creating a unique RC Mega Truck identity.
Included in the package, clear King Sling body, painting window mask, rear wing, scoop, mounting hardware and decal set. As always, each body set is backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage. Tackle the RC world fit for a King, #gojconcepts #jconceptssling
Fling King 2.6″ Mega Truck Tire
In the land of the Mega Truck, there is nothing better than a fresh set of deep tread tractor tires. One of the aliases of the mud tires, “Rice and Cane,” refer to the purpose or landscape they were originally designed for within the farming and agriculture industry. The Fling Kings by JConcepts are the first true to scale, RC Mega Truck tire, specifically designed to throw mud, dirt, gravel and grass just like the real thing.
The giant sized tires are tall enough to dance through the deepest RC loam, however, it’s the tall lugs that separate them from the rest. The 1:1 tires were hand-cut to produce the most wicked looking tires on the block. The JConcepts tires are uniquely built to replicate a hand-cut set, however, deep tread remains to do the “mega” land damage the drivers and enthusiasts crave.
Dragon 2.6″ 12mm Hex Wheel w/ Adaptors
JConcepts has designed and produced a very special wheel for unique vehicle performance. The 2.6” Dragon wheel is a first of its kind, a purpose built 12mm hex mega truck wheel which fits the (#3155) Fling King tires to perfection. The Dragon’s were used in concept and in conjunction with a fully licensed version of the 1:1 scale King Sling. The team worked together to build the ultimate mud runner, and succeeded.
The goal of scale size was achieved and built around a 2.6” mounting bead diameter. The width was matched to line-up perfectly with the Fling King tires and the constraints of the wheel were underway. Like other monster wheels by JConcepts, a bolt-in hub adaptor was created to match a huge variety of trucks while also offering different overall widths to choose from. The bead of the wheel features a 3 step surface which provides a massive amount of area for glue to rest giving the utmost security for full-throttle mud runs.
