JConcepts Slam-Tech inserts

The new Slam-Tech inserts by JConcepts are a new light-weight alternative for RC monster truck racing. Tyre inserts can be just as important as a performance tyre, and in many instances, proves to assist handling in the most difficult conditions. From a competitive standpoint, jump landings are extremely important, but perhaps most important in the monster truck community where the slightest advantage can produce a huge victory in a single racing pass. In testing, using a hard, closed cell type material in the tyres creates smoother rolling speed, more balance in the tyre and helps minimise rebound in the tyres off jump landings. The Slam-Tech is a new generation of insert with molded exclusive materials with radial details found on off-road racing inserts. Traditional open cell inserts weigh ~38gms each, while the Slam-Tech inserts weigh in at ~24gms each. This lowers the rotating weight of any RC monster truck by a considerable amount thus providing more acceleration, better in-air control, less un-sprung weight, and less overall weight. The inserts are compatible with JConcepts tyres such as the 2.6” Renegades, Knobs, Launch, Racer, and Runner.
