JConcepts Diamond Bar 1/8th buggy tyre

New from JConcepts comes the the Diamond Bar, named after the shape and longer horizontal bar. The design offers exceptional wear characteristics on hard surfaces and blends consistency with speed and durability thanks to a dual stage, tapered design which allows for exponentially less wear over time. Loads of forward bite combined with a neutral steering characteristic make the tyre also easy to drive and highly capable. Like all new JConcepts tyres the Diamond Bar include Dirt-Tech inserts and the tyre is available in a range of compounds and also as pre-mounts.

JConcepts Chasers black compound 1/8th buggy tyres

JConcepts Chasers black compound 1/8th buggy tyres

JConcept’s Chasers 1/8th scale buggy tyres are now available in the popular black compound. The Chasers rely on hefty, medium lugs which are angular in multiple directions. The horizontal type tread has a striking similarity to the trusty Crossbow tyre but the Chasers have a lower, closer lug arrangement which gives improved responsiveness and bite in medium, high and low grip conditions. The wet and dry condition tyre has small recessed cuts in the top of the tread for extra edges and increased formability over terrain. The centre overlapping bar treatment increases durability in the highest wear region of the tire. Included with the tyre come grey-colour Dirt-Tech inserts.
