JConcepts officially unveils the new Renegades RC Monster Truck Tires! Reaching the top step on the podium is a complete racing package. The result requires the correct setup, stellar driving and just as important, a performance built tire and compound. During the glory days of monster truck racing, cut tread became a popular method of reducing weight or altering a pattern in order to tune to specific track conditions. The Renegades tire by JConcepts represents the low-profile carcass and cut-tread movement, capable of winning results straight out of the package.
The chevron style lugs has been created with specially designed back-cut tread and shaved carcass areas imitating the real thing. At rotation, the tread still stands tall and provides a hefty edge of forward grip in a variety of conditions. The back-cut section provides a small transition during high-speed corning which conform to changing terrain and obstacles. The side-walls have been treated with wording, designs and descriptions consistent with 1:1 tires during that generation of performance.
The low-profile stance of the Renegades stays very flat during race course competition, speed-runs or general use. The tire carcass profile holds the weight extremely low while the design of the tire beads allows just the right amount of contact patch for gluing and application. The Renegades measure in at 5.80 x 4.0 x 2.6” and are available in two different compounds.
The soft “blue” compound which is recommended for dirt, grass and asphalt feels noticeably mushy and sticky and has expanding characteristics similar to off-road racings outdoor compounds. The “gold” compound feels harder to the touch and excels on carpet, AstroTurf and polished concrete surfaces and expands less during high-speeds. Renegades tires are complete and include open cell “React” inserts to support the grippy tires.
The Renegade tires are already a winner, taking the R/C Monster Truck Challenge World Finals as well as the NR/CTPA World Championships in amazing debut performances. When the monster calls, answer with JConcepts – World Proven Innovation and Design.
