JConcepts Reflex 1/8th buggy tyre

JConcepts Reflex 1/8th buggy tyre

New from JConcepts’ comes the Reflex tyre featuring a tread designed to bridge a gap between the popular Hybrid and other options such as Crossbow and Stacker. The Reflex has square angled pins that are stacked vertically to flex and fold evenly across the tyre. Typically a stacked tread will wear less and provide more forward bite while the aligned space helps rotation in the turns and gives a snappy release to square up quickly. During the IFMAR World Championships, the Reflex tyre was at full potential when the weather soaked the track and drivers searched for grip. Ryan Maifield bolted on a set of green compound Reflex to his buggy and quickly showed the capability of the tread by taking one of the fastest times on the weathered surface. Back in California at the Sidewinder Nitro Explosion and then again at The Battle of the Sikest race Maifield used the Reflex tyre to success on a maintained and lightly watered surface. The tyre is available in a range of rubber compounds, including the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts and also as pre-mounts.
