Inspired from some of the most successful JConcepts Racing Tires, these new Choppers have the look, fit and finish of a hard-core racing tire on steroids. Whether you are an experienced racer or beginning driver, the Choppers in blue compound are designed to tear up surfaces ranging from grass and gravel to dirt and asphalt. The tall and burly square lug design of the Choppers provides a deep tread depth for heavy footing even in the toughest conditions. The recessed lugs give a multitude of fresh edges to maintain consistent traction during the initial phase of tread life. The tread alignment and spacing provides massive forward bite acting as a paddle in loose dirt or sandy bashing environments. The outer sidewalls include heavy JConcepts X-Tread support ribs to aid traction in tight conditions or while against sharp or angled objects. The inner side-walls have built-in ribbing for added tire to insert support increasing cornering consistency.
Finally, the most recognizable truck on the road is Short Course ready. JConcepts introduces the first Ford F-250 Super Duty body developed specifically for Short Course Racing. Officially licensed by Ford to JConcepts, the F-250 is blended technology, combining powerful elements from the popular JConcepts assortment of SCT bodies, the Super Duty unveils like a winner. The front grill and headlight treatment have the feel of an interstate ‘big rig’ while remaining low-profile to slip under the breezy radar. The front hood scoop with cut-lines for 5 individual air-outlets make a functional yet visual impression. Low-profile cab height gives this body a distinct advantage on high speed circuits while the F-250 drop-down windows and black-out decals sharpen up the side window detail.
JConcepts introduce their popular 10 spoke Hazard wheels for the Traxxas Slash 2WD and 4×4 line of trucks. The 12mm hex wheels come in black, white or yellow colour as rims only or pre-mounted with JC’s green compound Subcultures or 3Ds tires. Also new is the Monroe carbon fibre battery brace for the Traxxas Slash 4×4.

Included with the brace comes a protective foam pad.
JConcepts have released the 3Ds SCT race tire in blue and green compounds. Developed to be the ultimate slick-groove tire, the 3Ds are a first to combine the high-stability design of a black groove bar tire into an individually flexible pattern of finely spaced Double Dee lugs in one package. As racing on both indoor and outdoor conditions have matured, a more flexible, supremely grippy tire design was necessary to drive the edgy, fast pace. The 3Ds grip are a new, highly sought after, favorite in these conditions. Pre-mounted versions are also available for the SC10 RS, SC10 4×4 and Losi SCT-E.
JConcepts have announced that their popular Hazard short course wheel is now available for the Losi SCT-E in black, white and yellow. A powerful new look that combines the winning combination of a 10 spoke design, bead-lock appearance and center lug nut detail with a hint of inspiration from yesteryear. Wheel profile, interior and exterior ribbing and spoke design were all areas of focus while creating the combination of durability, clearance, functionality and appearance.
