6mik have introduced their new Axium 4WD 1/10th buggy front tyre for artificial surfaces such as carpet and astroturf. The tyre uses the company’s Optimized Control Concept design with softer inner and harder outer carcass for improved steering precision in both low and high bite track conditions, depending on the mounting direction of the tyre. The tread makes use of rounded outer pins for great balance between steering aggressiveness and bite while the inner blocks ensure good traction. The tyre will become available in green soft and blue medium compound.
JConcepts have introduced a new take on a classic product, the Satellite tire mounting rubber bands are now available in red. A uniquely molded design, specifically developed for tire mounting, the rubber band is produced in a high-elasticity material capable of stretching to a full assortment of different sized tires. Finely detailed array of handles are designed to ergonomically conform to your fingers so the user can deftly adjust the rubber band to the sidewall of each tire to apply the pressure where it is needed. Includes 4 bands per package.
Sweep Racing have introduced their newest 1/10 touring car inserts, called the EXP-SX. Developed for high performance racing tires to provide extremely high traction and forward bite with stable feeling around corners, the EXP-SX inserts stay securely positioned inside the tire and on the wheel thanks to its profile. Only available in soft pink.
MW RC Cars have introduced the TPro Cougar tyre for 1/8th off-road buggies. The tread sports medium-size square pins that greatly improve wear characteristics and make the tyre ideal for both high grip and dusty track conditions while smaller outer pins ensure swift steering response. The updated carcass also features outer X-shaped portions for optimised car control. The tyre is meant to excel on a variety of tracks that require grip and acceleration and it is available in pairs now.
Following the introduction of HB Racing’s new 1/8th buggy pre-mounts comes a new tyre, the Gridlock V2. Based on the original Gridlock tread, the V2 design features staggered blocks for more lateral grip compared to the original tyre. New sidewall blocks help on bumpy tracks and make the Gridlock V2 easier to drive and not as edgy for the driver. The V2 is a durable design with longer life than HB Megabite tyre and it is mounted on HB Racing’s version 2 dish wheels, available in yellow and white, that are 20 percent lighter than the original version. The pre-mounts are built using black closed cell inserts and they are available in Pink super soft, Red soft and White medium compound.

Traxxas have introduced a new line of drift tyres as well as a spool assembly for the 4-Tec 2.0 on-road car. Starting with the hard-compound plastic tyres, they provide the perfect combination of durability and breakaway potential for any drifting surface. Tough enough for carpet, concrete, or even asphalt, these tyres hold up battle after battle. Precision-glued at the factory, the pre-mounts come in both narrow front and wide rear configurations. Orange, green, or black chrome rim colours help to add a splash of colour or match the body’s design. Also new is the optional differential spool that locks the front or rear axles for predictable breakaway. The set includes all needed parts to replace the standard differential.
