JConcepts silver compound 1/10th buggy Dirt Webs

Debuted at the 2014 Reedy Race of Champions, the JConcepts silver compound was the quick break-in compound used with success in the Open and Invitational classes. The new indoor compound labelled as “super soft indoor” is now available for the Dirt Webs tread and works alongside the gold, however, breaks in slightly quicker allowing drivers to get up to speed quickly and when practice is at a minimum. The silver is not a replacement for the popular gold compound but an option that can be used to dial in on a freshly groomed track or offer a quick break-in alternative.

JConcepts SCT Dirt Webs tyre

JConcepts SCT Dirt Webs tyre

JConcepts introduce their popular Dirt Webs tyre tread for 1/10th short course trucks with the SCT Dirt Webs tyre. Based on the design ideas of Brian Kinwald and Jason Ruona the tyre combines the Pressure Points tread with uniformly positioned web-bars for added stability. This makes for increased forward traction while inside positioned horizontal and vertical bars help with side bite. The outer edges feature a single rib on each side which proves extra side-bite during heavy cornering and side-loading characteristics. The Dirt Web thread sits on the proven Bar Code tyre carcass giving the original wide-body tyre a low profile and appearance allowing clipped tread to extend all the way to the outer edges. Available in multiple compounds, the Dirt Webs can easily be matched to any track conditions ranging from indoor clay, indoor dirt to outdoor hard-packed or treated clay or dirt.
