    JConcepts takes ‘Dirt Webs’ 1/8 scale

    December 9, 2014 - 20:33 by Mike Garrison 0 Comments

    JC Tire

    JConcepts has just released the popular ‘Dirt Webs’ tread for 1/8 buggy! The tread, originally based on the popular Pressure Points tire design connects uniformly positioned Web-Bars to create an amazingly stable tire. During 2014, the design was converted to use on a 1/8th buggy carcass and debuted during the 1/8th E-buggy ROAR Nationals in Houston, Texas. The Dirt Webs, the ultimate Bar-Tire, relies heavily on the Web-treatment for massive forward acceleration; however, the design does not stop there. Inside the supported bar portion rests horizontal and vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Web-Bars to help minimize wear. Down in the corners, small Pressure Point sized pins break-in quickly providing surface area for specialty indoor racing and also lend a helping hand to stabilize the tire in extreme high-grip conditions.

    Tebo Maifield

    This past weekend hosted the JConcepts Indoor National Series Finals at HobbyTown USA HobbyPlex in Omaha, Nebraska. The event packed the house with competition including that of reigning INS champion and series ‘regulars’ Ryan Maifield, AE’s Spencer Rivkin, Steven Hartson, and many more. The finale of the 2014 series would belong to Kyosho/AKA driver Jared Tebo. Tebo brought home the win in both 2wd Mod Buggy and 4wd Mod Buggy after some close racing with long-time friend/rival Ryan Maifield and others. While Tebo would win the battle in Omaha, Maifield has won the war by clinching the JConcepts Indoor National Series title in 2wd SC, 2wd Mod Buggy, and 4wd Mod Buggy. Read more…

    Atondo

    The 9th Annual ‘North vs. South’ event was hosted by Central Valley RC Raceway in Madera, California recently. The entry count was down compared to year’s past, but the track and competition in attendance made for some great racing. TLR’s Phillip Atondo proved he was the man to beat, as he set the pace by taking TQ in both 1/8 buggy and 1/8 truggy in qualifying. Atondo carried on to win both class A-Main’s with over a lap on the field in each.

    The Lutzinator takes 3 at the ‘Fall Brawl’

    Lutz Fall Brawl

    Ryan Lutz seems to be settling in quite well at his new Tekno home, as he has once again returned from another successful race weekend. Lutz recently joined many of the east coast’s best drivers to attend The Badlands R/C Supercross ‘Fall Brawl’ event in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Despite the local hot shots and various other top pros (such as Adam Drake), Lutz brought home the win in 1/8 Nitro Truggy, 1/8 E-Buggy, Pro-4 SCT, and narrowly missed the win in 1/8 Nitro Buggy after a flame out leading the race.
