JConcepts Smoothie 2 1/10th buggy tire

In some conditions in off-road racing, there is no denying that a slick tire is the fastest way around the track. Throughout the racing calendar year, there are several tracks where slicks in silver compound are the go-to tire. Indoor and occasionally outdoor clay surfaces become so tacky or free of dust and debris that a total slick tire is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing, now, JConcepts has the Smoothie 2. Released as a 2.2” bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothie 2 mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled slightly thickened tire carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the specialty surfaces like no other. The Smoothies include Dirt-Tech inserts which have made an immediate presence on the racing scene since their release. The identifiable grey colour with custom sculpted features, are blended into the insert material which provide racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.

RM2 MBX8 carbon rock guard & nose piece washer

JConcepts together with Ryan Maifield and ace mechanic Mike Truhe had a goal before the ROAR Fuel Nationals of creating a rock guard capable of resisting larger debris from getting into the drivetrain on the MBX8 line of vehicles. An ultra-thin carbon fibre plate has been created to position over the rear driveshaft and diff outdrive to block items from entering from the top of the vehicle. Another small addition from JConcepts and RM2 can help save a truck body nosepiece from abuse. The detailed design of the light-weight carbon fibre nose-piece washer works in conjunction with the JConcepts F2 body and helps support across the entire section of the mounting flange area. Included hardware makes assembly and fit a breeze and once completed, looks factory and as custom as it gets.
