Press Release From JConcepts:
The gnarliest off-road tire is now available pre-mounted for monster trucks. The Fling King created for its popularity in the mud racing game makes an incredibly good tire for the large trucks. In the land of the Megas and Monsters, there is nothing better than a fresh set of deep tread tractor tires. One of the aliases of the mud tires, “Rice and Cane,” refer to the purpose or landscape they were originally designed for within the farming and agriculture industry. The Fling Kings by JConcepts are the first monster truck mud tire pre-mounted and specifically designed to throw mud, dirt, gravel, and grass just like the real thing.
The giant-sized tires are tall enough to dance through the deepest RC loam, however, it’s the tall lugs that separate them from the rest. The 1:1 tire were hand-cut to produce the most wicked looking tires on the block. The JConcepts tires are uniquely built to replicate a hand-cut set, however, deep tread remains to do the “mega” land damage the drivers and enthusiasts crave. Inside the tire, reinforcement ribs have been added to the outer sidewall to help stabilize the carcass against the wheel.
One of the most impressive details about the pre-mounted Fling Kings, they are mounted to the JConcepts Aggressor (#3423S) 2.6” x 3.8” wheel in silver color, making them even more scale in monster truck appearance. No details were spared on these mud runners, the V-type tread is replicated to a T and the top of the tread carries a slight recess adding a little touch of depth to the appearance. Off to the side, the tire lettering hits hard with retro style JConcepts lettering, Fling King logo and crown with #3084-part number for easy identification.
The medium-soft "yellow" compound which is recommended for dirt, grass, and asphalt feels noticeably mushy and sticky and has expanding characteristics and tend to “pizza cutter” during flat out high-speed runs. The 17mm adaptors are already screwed and locked into place making them ready to go. Just attach to the vehicle, add planetary cover on the outside and enjoy the performance.
As the RC industry creates more monster truck vehicle options, a true heavy-duty 17mm wheel was necessary as a direct bolt-on item. The Aggressor wheel is familiar, on the outside it looks like its successful sibling, the Tribute wheel. However, to accommodate some of today’s trucks, the Aggressor is beefed up starting with thick wall sections throughout the wheel and a reinforced 17mm hex adaptor with a ten-leg bolt pattern that locks and keys into the wheel.
To fit many of today’s solid axle and independent suspension monster trucks such as the Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 and Arrma Kraton, the inside of the wheel is raised to a 3.8” bead mounting diameter. The 2.6” outer bead diameter combined with the 3.8” inner diameter makes the wheel incredibly versatile and can fit to an array of vehicles on the market while still providing that monster truck look. The wheel comes with an optional planetary cover so finishing off the look in realism can be a reality.
The Aggressor wheels include hardware for 17mm hex adaptor, planetary cover and is available in white, black, yellow, and silver colors. The wheels fit to JConcepts tires #3084 Fling Kings and #3085 Renegades made specifically for 2.6” x 3.8” wheels available in yellow and gold compounds. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, supported, and developed by professionals with style and authenticity. JConcepts, since 2003 – World Proven Innovation and Design
