Double is great, Triple is amazing. The Double Dees, originally designed in 2007 were ahead of their time. Now the Triple Dees, designed in the future and available now represent the latest in grip from JConcepts. Loose and tacky track conditions require small pin designs, and the Triple Dees were a fresh design from the ground-up. Starting with finely spaced square mini lugs, the JConcepts design team spent considerable time proofing this design. Center bar structure is important for wear characteristics and an overlapping and blended center bar was created. 

The bar draws up the side of the pin to maintain all important support, but the main stance is low, so the tire maintains its clean-out ability during acceleration. The main-stay of the design is the angled and sharp pins which spread across the carcass in an open pattern touching off the track surface like no-other. Near the sidewall the pins have been trimmed and angled to give racers a smooth driving experience as they enter and exit tacky turns or slightly rough terrain.

The Triple Dees tire has been designed to trim overall weight in every possible way. The carcass thickness, pin spacing, and diameter have all be optimized for the ultimate performance 1/8th truggy tire. Now available in blue (soft), green (super soft), A2 (medium soft, long-wear) the new tires are packaged in reusable packaging for freshness and convenience. The Triple Dees include Dirt-Tech inserts, popularized by its durable nature and color, give customers the package they have been waiting for from JConcepts.

The Reflex has square angled pins that are stacked vertically to flex and fold evenly across the tire. Typically, a stacked tread will wear less and provide more forward bite while the aligned space helps rotation in the turns and gives a snappy release to square up quickly. Since the release of the Reflex, it is arguably the most successful tire in its era and has always gripped surfaces with a selection of fine JConcepts compounds such has blue (soft), green (super soft), and black (mega soft).

Retail price – $32.00

(Fits – 83mm 1/8th buggy wheel)

Fight toxic track conditions with the Detox by JConcepts. Inevitability, track conditions turn brutal on the 1/8th scale racing scene and JConcepts has answered the bell with a dependable mega tread tire. Closely spaced tread creates the ultimate long main event tire and combined with the compounds such as blue (soft), green (super soft), A2 (medium soft, long-wear compound), and A3 (soft, long-wear compound) provides racers an option for just about any temperature requirement.

The design revolves around the center structure which has hefty lugs arranged in a stacked configuration. The lugs have strategically placed cuts and grooves to allow flex in dusty conditions to perform even if the track is deteriorating while a long main is in progress. The outer portion of the tread fits together like building blocks, with shapes placed together that nest well but also work together to flex laterally to provide steadfast side-bite. The tread tapers off cleanly to the outer sidewall giving a smooth transition during hard cornering.

All tires include the latest insert from JConcepts. The Dirt-Tech insert, popularized by its durable nature and gray color, will give customers the combo package they have been waiting for from JConcepts. Look for reputable dealers and distributors and demand authentic products. The package is complete and backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage.

Stalkers - Aqua (A3) compound
Part # - 3175-04
UPC Code – 845937025005
Retail price – $32.00
Map price – $24.00

(Fits – 83mm 1/8th buggy wheel)

Main event racing requires performance, consistency, and longevity by selecting the correct tire. The Stalkers tire by JConcepts was developed for surfaces which mature over time, get rough, dry and with extreme scaling to the surface. The Reflex tire, designed by Jason Ruona, in early 2014 has been a success and the Stalker is a chip off the old block.

The design team checked over the carcass profile, height, and width to assure the best balance of weight and drivability. The Stalkers began with an enlarged square pin which has slight angle on each side. The angle creates some separation at the top which gives some bite in wet conditions providing some versatility to the design.

As the pins meet the base of the tire, the spacing tightens considerably giving a stable footing for the Stalkers. Using softer compounds such as blue (soft) and green (super soft), the tire has stability and flexibility for fast qualifying. The pin real-estate provides a lot of flexibility in extended main events and when paired with recent compounds such as A2 (medium soft, long-wear compound), A3 (soft, long-wear compound), the Stalker becomes a major threat in long 45-to-60-minute main events.

The stacked row configuration and simple connected pins offer massive forward acceleration. The aligned rows allow some surface drift making the tires forgiving in sand and bumpy track sections. The outside pin has been clipped to help drivability and ease the initial turn-in drivers often have concern for. The JConcepts tires include the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts made famous by their gray color and durability. The package is complete with re-sealable, zip-top packaging and backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage.

Compound range:
