JConcepts Space Bars 1/10th buggy tires
JConcepts have introduced the new Space Bars 1/10th buggy tire. The 2.2″ offering is designed for the popular indoor track conditions where the surface is mostly built of clay soil and it was designed to excel when using mid-motor vehicles, on tracks with large jump conditions. The tread, originally based on the legendary Dirt Webs tire design, connects uniformly positioned Space Bars to create a stable tire. The design relies heavily on a larger format of the original Web pattern for massive forward acceleration. Inside the supported bar portion rests long horizontal and short vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Space Bar feature to help minimize wear, helping to break-in quickly for competition but not wear out before that all important peak performance. The outer edges feature a tiny single rib on each side which proves extra side-bite during heavy cornering and side-loading characteristics. The Space Bar tread sits on a rounder profile carcass with a shorter side-wall which transitions quickly and lands and jumps with increased traction. The plump look of the wide-body tire grips hard and also gives a sense of comfort for the aggressive driver. The inner ribbing has been updated to keep the tire expansion to a minimum while still providing a healthy dose of flexibility to the tire allowing a greater balance of monster forward traction and comfortable side-bite. The tire is available in gold compound for the front and rear and they include Dirt Tech closed cell inserts.
