This past weekend was the second round of the fantastic Worksop series, as always there was a great entry of drivers present. All abilities are welcome at this series, so they had Pro’s in attendance all the way through to new starters and even some people coming back to the hobby after 20 years away. The race format was round by round qualifying, with the best 2 results from 4 rounds of qualifying counting towards the final position. The Worksop team had designed a fantastic track layout for this event, some great off road features were built including the wall of death. As always this is very popular with racers due to new features and jumps being built fresh for these events. In 2wd qualifying, it was Neil Cragg who dominated proceedings by taking TQ in all 4 rounds, therefore he would line up on pole. Tommy Hall would be 2nd and Edward Callan would line up 3rd.
JConcepts introduce two new offerings for the monster truck class with the release of their new Knobs & Launch tires. The Knobs, simply named for their appearance of the irregular diamond shaped knobs which have step and overlapping features built in. JConcepts believes tire options in the class should replicate those used in major series events in the 1:1 world and the Knobs certainly do. The arrangement, pattern, and instances were a result of carving from an existing 1:1 tire and the results were fantastic. The Knobs excel in dirt or asphalt conditions where massive edging of the pins helps forward drive and side-bite. Replicated cuts helped turn the carcass into a low-profile tire giving it a racing stance like other successful JConcepts tires such as the Renegade. Both tires includes ‘React’ open cell inserts which support the upper carcass and sidewall under loaded conditions.

They have also introduced the SG front knuckle, which has been developed at the same time as the SG bell crank set The new knuckle works best when used with the SG bell crank. Based on extensive testing only the 2 positions were selected for the hole location in order for simplify the customer set up.
