JConcepts Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres

JConcepts Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres

JConcepts introduce the Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres. In some conditions in off-road racing slick tyres are the fastest way around the track. In damp weather, indoor clay surfaces become so tacky that the lower the tread or to the point of zero tread is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing. Released as a 60mm bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothies mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled tyre carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the surface. The tyres include Dirt-Tech 60mm inserts and they are available as 2WD front end 2WD/4WD rear tyre in Gold compound.
