JConcepts Firm Profiled 1/8th buggy insert

JConcepts Firm Profiled 1/8th buggy insert

JConcepts have released this pair of firm profiled inserts for use with 1/8th scale buggy tires. Having the proper density insert for track conditions pays equal dividends to the racer and especially toward the end of races. Starting on too firm an insert the driver feels ‘on edge’ during the first run or subsequent runs on a set of inserts. Starting on too soft an insert the driver’s vehicle is not responsive enough or runs the risk of too much insert breakdown during long races which creates a squirmy or inconsistent feel. Having the feel that is just right requires a bit of balance of durability and hardness.
