First debuting at the 2012 Cactus Classic, JConcepts has now released their new 1/10 truck profile inserts, plus a new 1/10 buggy insert that features a slightly rounder profile that will help you in loose conditions with treaded or slick type tires. Check these out in the press release below:
Tire inserts are one of the most critical aspects of 1/10th off-road racing. Racers have asked JConcepts for a firmer and more durable insert and after much deliberation the new JConcepts Profiled insert is ready. Having the insert with proper density for track conditions pays dividends to the racer and especially toward the end of races. Starting on too firm an insert, the driver feels “on edge” during the first run or subsequent runs on a set of inserts. Starting on too soft an insert, the driver’s vehicle is not responsive enough or runs the risk of too much insert breakdown during the tail end of a tires life which creates a squirmy or inconsistent feel. Having the feel that is just right requires a bit of balance of durability and hardness. To add to the construction and performance, JConcepts has added cut / grooves into the inner and outer profile of the inserts to add an even greater driver to track feel. JConcepts is just right and always on target with the new Profiled insert.
The 3205-1 insert for 1/10th Racing Trucks was debuted during the 2012 Cactus Classic and has been used in a testing phase throughout 2012. The material and design is very similar to the popular 1/10th buggy rear insert, part number 3206-2. The medium to firm feel combined with the correct inner and outer sizing and profile makes a perfect complement to the JConcepts 1/10th Racing Truck tire line-up.
The 3206-3 insert comes on the heels of the success of the 3206-2 insert. The -3 insert as it is called, utilizes the same inner and outer cuts as the -2 but with a slightly rounder profile, the insert rounds the shape of the tire slightly which is advantageous in loose conditions with treaded tires or when using slick type tires.
