When racing on a loamy or top soil track surface the inside of the SC10 chassis can become loaded with dirt or debris which creates extra weight. With the JConcepts over-tray these worries are minimized with the simple and functional over-tray. Fitting nicely under the body, it hugs the outside dimension of the SC10 chassis protecting the inside from unwanted excess dirt and debris build-up during racing conditions. The over-tray is snug around the entire chassis structure while being attached in the rear with blue anodized thumbscrews and a slide-in fit in the front for easy access. The over-tray is built with extra height and rake to provide extra room for various electrical and battery configurations.

The new AE Pitman glove has a 100% Clarino synthetic palm, which has the durability characteristics of leather. Clarino is a synthetic fiber thousands of times finer than silk and these ultra-fine fibers are super flexible, resulting in smoother curves, greater suppleness and unparalleled softness. Clarino will also repel wind, water, stains, and mildew. A spandex top is used to create the optimum balance of flexibility while helping to protect from cuts, burns and bruises when you’re hustling to get that car ready. Hidden seams reduce snagging and a Velcro wristband helps keep your gloves on securely.
