“Double Dees” unleashed – First Big race, first Big win.
JConcepts Racing Tires made their debut at the 2007 Nitro Challenge in Surprise, AZ. In the hotly contested 45 minute A-main event, Ryan Maifield made it a debut to remember by winning the Pro Gas Truck class A-main with his Associated GT2 running on JConcepts “Double Dees” tires in Sticky Green Compound.
In 1/8th scale buggy, Maifield also blitzed the track in Round 2 of qualifying with his Associated RC8 by laying down a TQ run using the 1/8th scale version of the “Double Dees”. That qualifying run set panic throughout the pits forcing everyone to adjust their selections for round 3.
JConcepts driver Ryan Maifield stated:
“You can tell if a tire is going to work on the first lap and especially in 1/10th scale and gas truck in particular. While in the lead with 2 minutes to go when I heard the race announcer say I had my fastest lap in the entire 45 minute A-main, I was impressed!
JConcepts President Jason Ruona stated:
“I have been fascinated with R/C tires since I started racing in 1991. I’ve driven in 3-IFMAR Worlds A-main finals and been a Pro driver since 1994. Great drivers can make a lot of products look good; tires are not one of those products.”
Although, the first major event for these tires, they have been under development for nearly a year. Rigorous testing by qualified drivers and designers make for ideal racing products. JConcepts – Will, Vision, Desire, Strength and Creativity.
