JConcepts Hybird & 3Ds buggy tires

JConcepts Hybird & 3Ds buggy tires

JConcepts have officially released their two new race winning tire designs debuted at the IFMAR Worlds last November. Hybrids are already a successful tire dominating at events such as the CRCRC Midwest Championships and the popular Motorama event. A mid-lug design with unique inner Crowbar center lug DNA, the Hybrid is built for speed and ultimate high-speed control and handling. Supported lug control and X-braced sidewall lug detail is designed to go the distance in long qualifiers, final main events and beyond. The 3Ds were the hottest tire on the slick groove surface at the recent JConcepts Clash where Ryan Maifield TQ’ed in convincing fashion. Developed to be the ultimate Slick-groove tire, the 3Ds are a first to combine the high-stability design of a black groove bar tire into an individually flexible pattern of finely spaced Double Dee lugs in one package. 3Ds include the Profiled (closed cell) insert design featuring the unique, highly durable material, bright blue color and revolved cuts which provide extra full support, stability and cushion.

Ronald Volker defends European Indoor title

Ronald Volker defends European Indoor title

Ronald Volker has successfully defended his EFRA European Indoor title with victory over the weekend in Hrotovice in the Czech Republic. The Yokomo driver dominated proceedings, as he has done in almost all races in the past 12 months, and took the TQ spot in qualifying ahead of Xray driver Alexander Hagberg in 2nd and Yokomo team mate Yannic Pruemper in 3rd. In the finals Ronald checked out in the first two to wrap up the title early and so didn’t race the 3rd leg allowing Pruemper and Hagberg to battle it out for the runner up spot. Hagberg with two 2nd spots in the first legs looked favourite to take it but a diff problem allowed Pruemper to snatch the leg win and claim 2nd overall on a tie breaker, with Hagberg having to settle for 3rd spot.
