JConcepts continues to muscle new scale off-road items into the market with the introduction of the Tusk 1.9” tire. After successful class 1 tires such as the Landmines and Bounty Hunters, the team focused on a new design with learned information by driving, crawling, and important input from a heap of development time by the JConcepts team. The team retained the 4.19” sizing making it an approved and scale-based tire, but the tread layout went under the scope for changes. The Tusk has an animal like instinct while it makes its way over terrain with hefty lugs and sidewall support. The centre of the tire starts with a V-shaped lug with multiple steps to the sides for additional grip while the green compound rubber flexes and contours to the landscape. The design team added large, staggered traction bars off the side continuing the V-shape pattern and while the shorter version steps in conjunction with the centre lug, the longer version fills a void underneath and meets up near the centre line of the tire.
The Revolution Design Racing Products +3mm chassis has been updated for the ultra-popular Team Associated B6.3 2wd buggy. As before, it mirrors the optimised length of the original B6.2 and B6.3 chassis to improve handling in high-bite track conditions such as carpet and Astroturf, making the car easier and faster to drive at the same time. Of course, the new chassis is prepared to accommodate new-generation servo mounts such as the B6.3 kit item or the RDRP LCG servo mount set. Machined from aircraft-grade 7075 aluminium for strength and optimised flex characteristics, the black anodised surface is the perfect basis for a stealthy looking high-performance model race car. As with the B6.2 version, the chassis comes with a low centre of gravity 7075-T6 motor plate that puts your motor as low as possible into the chassis cut out.
T-Works have release their stainless steel chassis skid protector sets for the Team Associated RC10 B6.3/B6.2 buggy. The skid plates will provide additional chassis protection in the rear of the car, something that comes in handy especially when running on highly abrasive surfaces or on track with large jumps. The protector plates are made of high-quality stainless steel material for durability and corrosion resistance and come in a set of two.
