JConcepts Blockers 1/8th buggy tyres
Available now from JConcepts are their Blockers 1/8th buggy tyres. The Blocker, a relative of the popular Stalkers and Reflex tyres, have an even tighter tread pattern for long main events or very abrasive conditions. The design team checked over the carcass dimensions, profile, overall height and width to assure the best balance of weight and drivability. The Blockers began with a Stalkers style pin which has slight angle on each side for separation at the top. This fine detail gives increased bite in wet conditions providing some versatility to the design. As the pins meet the base of the tyre, the spacing tightens considerably giving a stable footing for the Blockers. Using more pins the tyre offers exceptional stability and flexibility for fast qualifying when running softer compounds such as blue and green. The additional pin real-estate provides a lot of cushion for extended main events and when paired with long-wear compounds such as R2 and O2 the race pace can be pushed out to 45-60 minutes with ease. The stacked row configuration and simple connected pins offer massive forward acceleration. The aligned rows allow some surface drift making the tyres forgiving in sand and bumpy track sections. The outside pin has been clipped to help drive-ability and ease the initial turn-in drivers often have concern for. The tyres include the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts and they are available in green, blue, R2 and O2 compounds.
