JConcepts is built on the passion and experience of its devoted staff. Since their beginning, they have introduced cutting edge designs, trend setting style and championship winning race results. JConcepts provides unparalleled support to the racer and enthusiast alike while always striving to set a new standard in performance. JConcepts products have proven themselves on tracks around the world and we are proud to now be able to offer them to you.

JConcepts Offroad Front Wheel - Inverse
JConcepts rocked the world during the 1/8th off-road IFMAR World Championships with the debut of a first of its kind; an adjustable 2-piece wheel. The 2-piece design provides several benefits for maximum tune-ability and ease of use. The inner wheel comes standard in a stealth, black matte finish providing the driver a look and feel never seen before. In addition, the inner wheel is designed as a completely smooth surface for the cleanest fit and finish which resists debris build-up. Previous industry standard designs with heavy ribbing have a tendency to catch debris which affects balance and weight.

The outer dish, available in bright white or fluorescent yellow is creatively interlocked with the wheel and with the addition of inner screws can provide tuned flexibility. A 4 or 8 - screw combination can be utilized for tuning with 8 screws providing a stiffer inner wheel and 4 screws providing more flex. The Inverse wheel face also incorporates a user friendly wheel face shaped to promote a smoother gluing, wiping and drying experience. Wheels are branded with the JC logo for brand identification and authenticity. The Inverse wheel package forms a light-weight, clean design that is pure JConcepts style and function.

Features:
• Available in bright white and fluorescent yellow color combinations
• Inner wheel comes standard in a stealth, black matte finish
• 4 inner and outer wheel pieces with tuning screws
• Durable, light-weight material and design

JConcepts products have proven themselves on tracks around the world and we are proud to now be able to offer them to you.

JConcepts 1/10th Buggy Rear Tires - Smoothies
JConcepts remains committed to 1/10th off-road racing by releasing the Smoothies.    In some conditions in off-road racing, there is no denying that a slick tire is the fastest way around the track.  Throughout the racing calendar year, there are several tracks where slicks in gold compound are the go-to tire.   In damp weather, indoor clay surfaces become so tacky that the lower the tread or to the point of zero tread is an advantage.   For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing.    
 
Now, with JConcepts, racers have the slick option straight out of the package.    Released as a 60mm bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothies mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel.    The carefully profiled tire carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the specialty surfaces like no other.    The Smoothies include Dirt-Tech 60mm inserts which have made an immediate presence on the racing scene since their release.   The identifiable gray color with custom sculpted features, are blended into the newly developed insert material which provide racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.
 
After completely mounting the tires to wheels, it is recommended to scuff the slick tires with sandpaper or scouring pad to have a slightly dull or rough finish to begin practice or racing.
 
Features:
• JConcepts design and function
• Designed in conjunction with Brian Kinwald and Jason Ruona
• 60mm or 2.4” bead mounting size
• Carefully shaped carcass = rolling speed
• Includes 60mm Dirt-Tech (gray) inserts

JConcepts is built on the passion and experience of its devoted staff. Since their beginning, they have introduced cutting edge designs, trend setting style and championship winning race results. JConcepts provides unparalleled support to the racer and enthusiast alike while always striving to set a new standard in performance. JConcepts products have proven themselves on tracks around the world and we are proud to now be able to offer them to you.

JConcepts 4WD Buggy Rear Tires - Dirt Webs
During 2012, legendary tire builder, Brian Kinwald, came up with a hand-made tire design. After testing at indoor and outdoor tracks around the country, qualifying results during the 2012 Hot Rod Shootout and working together with JConcepts designer Jason Ruona, the Dirt Webs tire was born. During the early stages of 2014, the team experimented with a larger 60mm | 2.4” bead mounting diameter at events such as the Cactus Classic and Surf City Classic. In the hands of Spencer Rivkin, the 60mm tire and wheel combination displayed advantageous performance in high-grip conditions. The taller bead combined with the included 60mm Dirt-Tech inserts provide a steady base for high-performance.

The tread, originally based on the popular Pressure Points tire design connects uniformly positioned Web-Bars to create an amazingly stable tire. Dirt Webs, the ultimate Bar-Tire, relies heavily on the Web-treatment for massive forward acceleration; however, the design does not stop there. Inside the supported bar portion rests horizontal and vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Web-Bars to help minimize wear. Down in the corners, small Pressure Point sized pins break-in quickly providing surface area for specialty indoor racing and also lend a helping hand to stabilize the tire in extreme high-grip conditions.   

The outer edges feature a single rib on each side which proves extra side-bite during heavy cornering and side-loading characteristics. The Dirt Web tread sits on a new tire body carcass giving the tire a low-profile, wide-body appearance allowing clipped tread to extend all the way to the outer edges. The carefully shaped profile allows a great balance of monster forward traction and comfortable side-bite. Available in multiple compounds, the Dirt Webs can easily be matched to any track conditions ranging from indoor clay, indoor dirt to outdoor hard-packed or treated clay or dirt.


Features:
• JConcepts original tread, available in multiple compounds
• Designed in conjunction with Brian Kinwald and Jason Ruona
• Connected Web-bars for stability / forward grip
• Horizontal and vertical bars for side-bite
• Pressure Point pins adds surface area
• 60mm |2.4” bead mounting size
• Carefully shaped carcass = forward traction
• Includes Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts

Specs:
Inter diameter: 60mm (2.4")
Outer diameter: 84mm
Width: 40mm
Compound: Blue (Soft)

JConcepts is built on the passion and experience of its devoted staff. Since their beginning, they have introduced cutting edge designs, trend setting style and championship winning race results. JConcepts provides unparalleled support to the racer and enthusiast alike while always striving to set a new standard in performance. JConcepts products have proven themselves on tracks around the world and we are proud to now be able to offer them to you.

This is the JConcepts Truck Pre-Mount Wheel - Subcultures

Subcultures, the popular three tier design from JConcepts, are the latest in 1/8th truck tire development.  The JConcepts design team started from the ground-up with an all new tire design.  Leaving no detail untouched, the elevated (angular) bead configuration provide elements that combine light-weight with performance.  In general, 1/8th truck tires are heavy and minimizing rubber and insert material was the focus.  Utilizing the tire sidewall as the mounting bead, the Elevated design eliminated the need for excess rubber and insert material, dropping weight, while simplifying the mounting / gluing contact patch and location.   One continuous tire body profile with Subcultures tread, together with the light-weight Force-1 insert has revolutionized 1/8th truck tires once again.

It’s a whole new world down within the tread as the Subcultures are the first 1/8th truck tire with three-tier lug technology.   The precisely spaced pyramid shaped tread provides the initial feel and control for hard packed, loose and loamy conditions while the step base give the necessary height for wet and soft conditions.  At the very base of the Subcultures is a mesh of tread which provides grip at a time when most tires are left bald.  Now available in sticky super soft green compound, the Subcultures are a specialty tire that when matched to the appropriate track can provide the performance and all around tire that racers dream of.

The Subcultures are a part of the JConcepts special breed of tire, designed for maximum performance when new or used as the design allows even wear all the way down to the tire body.  Subcultures, in green compound, while in new condition excel on hard slick surfaces that are either dry, wet or when traction is hard to come-by. Worn Subcultures on the second or third tier of lugs, excel on surfaces where a groove has formed with minimal dust buildup. 

Features:
• Green super soft compound
• Compact tire body with crisp tread and separation
• Aggressive 3-tier design

Specs:
Outer diameter: 136mm
Width: 60mm
Color: White
Compound: Green (Super Soft)
Suitable: 1/8th Truck

This is the JConcepts Truck Pre-Mount Wheel - Hybrids

A combination of years of development with JConcepts drivers; the Hybrids are all the rage and the combination of the most popular JConcepts tires available.   A mid-lug design with unique inner Crowbar center lug DNA, the Hybrid is built for speed and ultimate high-speed control and handling.  Supported lug control and X-braced sidewall lug detail is designed to go the distance in long qualifiers, final main events and beyond.

Adapted for the 1/8th truck class featuring the Elevated Bead design.  Light-weight continuous tire body design minimizes rotating mass which makes the 1/8th truck Hybrid a dynamite performer straight out of the package.   Extensive testing showed a smaller pin height advantageous in many conditions and particularly when sharp angles and edges arise in the track surface.  At the base of the design, the new mid-height lugs present the compound to the racing surface while the center lug DNA picks up the heavy lifting for forward-bite. 

An immediate winner, the Hybrids in the hands of Ryan Maifield TQ'ed and won the 2011 Alabama Manufacturers Shootout.   With 460 strong entries on-hand a 45 minute main event was no issue for the Hybrids,  going the distance and then some.  Impressive durability, great traction and winning results in a debut performance.   Look out for the Hybrids, a contender straight out of the package, an all-out design for racing, pure JConcepts.

A clutch/differential for this project is a bit beyond the scope/need of the project I think. It just really needs to work for a week in the desert (officially 5mph but I think a bit faster is better to plan for)

I've been looking at some of the larger motors on here..

Turnigy CA80-80 Brushless Outrunner (50~80cc Eq)
Watts: 8800w 44V
Max current: 200A
RPM: 160kv

Turnigy RotoMax 50cc Size Brushless Outrunner Motor (US Warehouse)
Watts: 5300w 44V
Max current: 120A
RPM: 172kv

Lots of videos on youtube of these performing well. So I'm thinking one would be enough power. I wish they still sold the Turnigy C80-100 as that looks to be really powerful. ]]>

You can take a choice between 10% - 50% or otherwise, if you don't want to be greedy you can go with 10% - 30%.

They still seem to be employing the same group of Web-chimps as before.

Can't understand the fuss about finding sale items. Just go to the area you are interested in and the sale items are clearly indicated.

If looking for a discounted electric helli - don't go looking in the tank or Glow/Electric airplane catagories.

Discounted batteries are shown under "batteries". Some people need their hands to be held by an adult while shopping.Sooty2015-03-05 06:35:50]]>

HK logic is that one has to check every single item in the catalogue to find the bargain!
In addition to your finding sales items (or lack of actually!) there are plenty of items marked down that were on backorder PRIOR to the 'sale' starting! And they have been for a good few weeks! One has to admire that - on sale, but out of stock! PMSL!!!

I worked at Northrop during the 70's and 80's. The F-5 and F-20 were always my favorite. F-18's, too - Really just a Douglas rip off of the F-17 we designed. Now Northrop(-Grumman) builds everything rear of the cockpit. ]]>
