CRC 1/10th GTR wheels & RT1 rubber tyres

CRC 1/10th GTR wheels & RT1 rubber tyres

Calandra Racing Concepts have introduced new wheels and tyres for 1/10th on-road cars. Starting with the GTR wheels, these are designed for rubber tyre 1/10th scale pan car racing, both oval and road. They are direct bolt on for 1/10th cars and in the rear, they use the standard 4 bolt mounting pattern commonly used in oval and World GT. In the front, they utilise the normal 1/8×5/16″ bearing, again very common among the 1/10th oval and World GT cars. The mounted tyres measure around 2.45″/62.2mm diameter, most all pan cars can be adjusted to make the proposed 5mm ride height rule. The rims are designed to mount tyres such as the Pit Shimizu, Tamiya TCS and CRC RT1 and the rims allow for two types of scale looks; low profile sidewall GT type cars and large sidewall NASCAR and F1 scale looks. As for the new RT1 tyres, they mount in the same style as the most popular Formula tyres, the Pit Shimizu 0571 and 0572 and the Tamiya TCS. The CRC tyre is meant to perform very well with great grip and stability on both carpet and asphalt. Coming this Fall are also pre-mounted tyre and wheel combos.

Pro-Line LockDown 1/5th scale tyre

New from Pro-Line comes the LockDown XTR tyre for large scale models such as the Losi 5ive-T. Just like the 1/8th buggy race tyre, the LockDown has a more open tread pattern than the Blockade making it perfect for loose conditions. The tyre also features connected side tread technology that reduces the edginess of the truck to prevent catching a rut and flipping. The inside contains detailed webbing that strengthens the tire carcass and prevents excessive tire expansion. The tyre is moulded from durable XTR rubber and it works with HPI 5T rear and Losi 5ive-T front or rear foams.

JConcepts Reflex 1/10th buggy tyre

JConcepts Reflex 1/10th buggy tyre

JConcepts’ Reflex tyre is designed to bridge a gap between the popular Double Dees and other options such as 3Ds and Hybrids. The Reflex has square, angled pins that are stacked vertically to flex and fold evenly across the tyre for less wear and more forward bite while the aligned space helps rotation in the turns and gives a snappy release to square up quickly. Ideal on loose surfaces which are wet or dusty the tyre releases and bites hard during corner exit for straight line acceleration which makes them perfect for mid motor buggies.. The blended tread to tyre body is supported with a generous radius which promotes “pin snap” and also resists tearing or separation. Horizontal traction bars connect several pins near the centre of the tyre which bonds a critical area for increased push at high-speed. The Reflex’, available as 2WD front, 4WD front and general rear variant, are built on the 60mm bead and carcass design making them interchangeable with all 60mm/2.4″ wheel combinations. The interior ribbing features the double-hatch pattern that helps maintain a comfy ride while each set of tyres includes the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts.
