JConcepts Octagon 2wd/4wd Buggy Tires

JConcepts Octagon 2wd/4wd Buggy Tires RCBattles can be won or lost in the “famed Octagon” and JConcepts pulled a ringer into the fight with an innovative 2.2” buggy race tire. When it comes to high-bite, slick tire racing, look no further than the Octagons. At the appropriate time, and less tread is an advantage, vehicles can be tough to drive. The beauty of the Octagons lay just beneath the surface where JConcepts has removed a little surface area in the geometry based pattern. The carcass is new, slightly more round than JConcepts slick tires of the past and incorporates heavy X-pattern style inner ribbing for increased support. The continuous thickness carcass is light-weight and utilizes the industry standard 2.2” mounting bead. Like the name suggests, the embossed tread which is Octagon shaped is repeated and overlapped to form a subculture of grippy surface edges for dry or abrasive surfaces. Read more…

The SC10.3 retains all of the features of the previously released SC10 RS with a new body paint scheme designed to mimic the full scale JRT truck driven by Doug Mittag. Mittag has been racing professionally since he was 14. He has worked his way up from UTVs, to a Pro Lite, a Pro-2 and now a Pro-4. In 2015, Doug won a Pro Lite Championship. He has since captured several podiums in his Pro-2, including a win, in his Rookie Year. Doug and the Jhonlin Race Team (JRT) are already making waves in the 2017 season! Along with the SC10.3 Doug Mittag JRT truck, Team Associated also unveiled a truck as well. Renezeder is a 9-time national short-course off-road champion, and has been earning the moniker of “living legend” since he first hit the track in his original Pro-2 truck in 1999. It didn’t take long for Carl to start winning races that quickly added up to 121 wins in his Pro-4 and Pro-2 trucks in just 18 seasons! Both versions of the SC10.3 come pre-assembled and ready to run with a Reedy electronic speed control, Reedy 3300kv brushless motor, a high torque steering servo and a 2.4Ghz radio system.

Kyosho RB6.6 Buggy Readyset

Kyosho RB6.6 Buggy ReadysetFor those looking to get their hands one of the highest performing RC race buggies on the market at a budget price, Kyosho announces the Ultima RB6.6 Readyset! Continually evolving to be at the forefront of racing trends, the RB6.6 is the most advanced competition model in the RB6 series to date and forms the base for this ready to run version version. While the kit version of the RB 6.6 features four transmission setups (rear motor, 3 gear mid motor, 4 gear mid motor, low-down mid motor), the Readyset version represents a great value and includes the 4 gear mid motor transmission with its more controllable feeling. As the basic configuration of the chassis and components are the same as in the kit version, the same wide setting options allow the chassis to be competitive on the race track straight out of the box. The all-important power train is equipped with the newly developed G15 brush motor that delivers even greater power characteristics than the sensorless brushless motor included in the Kyosho RB6 Readyset. As the RB6.6 Readyset includes nearly all items needed, simply charge your own battery for the chassis and add batteries into the transmitter to be race-ready! Read more…
