“The Code of Silence has been broken at JConcepts, and the Bar Codes are out. The Bar Code design is the freshest tire design seen in the last 10 years of racing development regardless of class and scale. Like the name suggests the alternating bar design combined with the addition of the Y side bars provide uncompromised support for blue and black groove conditions. Now available in Orange compound the Bar Codes are a specialty tire that when matched to the appropriate track can provide amazing results. The Bar Codes are a part of the JConcepts special breed of tire, designed for maximum performance when new or used as the design allows even wear all the way down to the tire body. Bar Codes in new condition excel on hard surfaces that have taken rubber with either dry or wet grooved conditions. Worn Bar Codes excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks where a minimal dust groove has formed. 2009 Cactus Classic is an Orange Crush for JConcepts. JConcepts TQ’s and wins 2 of 3 modified classes at the Cactus Classic. Read more…

After much R+D Answer-RC has settled on this HQ foam to offer upmost protection to the engine while allowing a free flow of air. These have been specially developed to offer a higher surface area meaning that there is no build up of dirt and grit during those long mains meaning no uncontrolled engine tuning issues. Using a light coloured foam means you can easily see how much dirt has built up and if it’s time for a replacement. Generally it is considered best practice to oil just the inner foam of the filter meaning loose dirt does not needlessly adhere to the outer of the filter.

Losi has released a rebuild kit for the Speed Shot Fuel Gun which allows racers to replace all the seals and O-rings in their fuel gun. The kit includes all necessary seals and O-rings, as well as a dump tube cap which protects the O-ring from dirt and catches any fuel that might leak into the vent tubes. Over time the seals and O-rings will wear and shrink, resulting in a weakened seal. This kit will allow you to rebuild your fuel gun, and prevent the gun from leaking fuel. [Source - Losi.com]
