Schumacher announce the release of the Stagger Rib tread tire for short course trucks. Available in soft yellow compound the tire is designed for the front of 2WD trucks and best suited for EU-style astro turf tracks.
Pro-Line introduce two new pre-painted body shells and pre-mounted Trencher X SC tires. Starting with the bodies, available soon are the original Flo-Tek and the Flo-Tek Ford F150 body shell. They are designed to fit most of today’s 2WD and 4WD SC trucks and come handpainted, partially pre-cut and pre-stickered. The bodies are hand-painted and genuine Pro-Line shells separating them from the many screen-printed plastic shells on the market. Also new are pre-mounted M2 medium compound Trencher X SC tires on black Renegade wheels. They will become available for a wide range of trucks such as the Traxxas Slash 2WD and 4×4, the TLR Ten-SCTE, AE SC10 4×4, and HPI Blitz.
Pro-Line have made their ION SC tires available in 3 new compounds in addition to their Clay tire released previously. Now available in soft, super soft and blue groove, the unique molecular structure tread design provides unbelievable forward and side traction not yet achieved in any indoor race tire to date. Even with the super-low tread height, maximum wear is reached by the alternating dual center lugs. The ION is also extremely easy to drive due to the super-smooth side tread that flows organically out of the tire sidewall. PL have also introduced a MX ‘Blue Groove’ compound version of their Suburbs 2.0 SC tire.
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.
The Pro-Line Ion SC indoor clay tire was designed from the ground-up and requires zero break-in tine. The unique molecular structure tread design provides forward and side traction and with the super-low tread height, maximum wear is reached by the alternating dual center lugs. The ION is also extremely easy to drive due to the super-smooth side tread that flows organically out of the tire sidewall. The new tire already proved its performance by taking the ROAR National Championship in Pro-2 SC in the hands of Ryan Cavalieri.
Duratrax has just released pre-mounted tires and wheels designed for the Team Associated SC10 4×4 and Team Losi SCTE 4×4 trucks. The scale tire sets come mounted on lightweight, durable black rims and are available in several tread patterns, including the new Bandito tires designed for asphalt, concrete and other hard, smooth surfaces. Sets for both vehicles are available in soft C2 and super-soft C3 compound and include inserts. Also available are Wheel sets for both vehicles in white and yellow as well as black colour.
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.
