AKA Viper 1/10 buggy tires

AKA’s all new Viper 1/10 tires feature a ‘bar-type’ tread pattern designed to break in quickly and provide unparalleled traction on hard-packed or blue groove, indoor and outdoor tracks. Designed in conjunction with RC legend, Gil Losi Jr., the Viper tires boast an updated carcass and optimised tread height and thickness for maximum performance. The Viper rear tires have been designed with a directional tread pattern which provides another tuning option to help racers fine-tune their vehicle to their liking. The viper front tires are a non-directional tread pattern allowing racers to swap tires from side-to-side which helps maintain even tire wear between the left and right tires. Available for 1/10 Rear, 2WD front and 4WD front in championship-winning Clay, SuperSoft and SuperSoft Long wear compounds.

JConcepts F2 body for Associated B6.4

JConcepts has arrived at the ROAR carpet off-road nationals this week with their latest body for the Team Associated B6.4. The F2 body with an all new platform specifically to fit the B6.4 chassis shape has undergone several other updates. The F2 has an all new lower profile cab delivering knockout looks and performance. More improvements include following the chassis shape extremely close in the rear along with a tight and precise fit around new top-deck and lower chassis shape. More clearance has been added around the spur gear guard and additional width for optional 3 pad slipper assembly. New trim lines throughout make for a nicer fitting body with a slim front nose to fit just under the front shock tower and along the front bulkhead. The rear side-pods have also been simplified to allow smoother driving characteristics and more room for decal placement. The F2 Low-Profile body for the B6.4 will include two Carpet / Turf / Dirt wings, window masks and decal sheet.
