Mambos by JConcepts is the latest wide-body tire built specifically for RC Drag Racing. At the heart of this design is the 2.2 x 3.0” configuration but stretched out to create a larger contact patch. Forward traction is the name of the game and the goal of the larger area, in theory, gives a racer a slight advantage in the ‘hook and go’ department. One of the tricky aspects to drag racing rear tires is tire expansion and controlling this aspect of power and acceleration. The JConcepts design team thickened the entire carcass, added new inner sidewall ribbing on the inside and outside and then an industry first waffle inner weight reduction pattern. The waffle pattern accomplishes 2 things, weight reduction and provides some resistance to expansion to split some difference between a heavily restricted belted tire and a tire with no inner structure. Another exciting feature designed into the sidewall is the ability to add a beadlock style wheel such as the new Starfish wide beadlock wheel. The rear tire has an inspired look with a wide-body footprint so the driver can feel the straight-line forward stability with very light rolling resistance.
