The ultimate monster truck racing tire is now available for a variety of new vehicles on the market. The Renegades named for the hard-core performance design with low-profile racing carcass can now be placed on popular vehicles such as the Losi LMT, Traxxas Maxx, E-Revo and Arrma Kraton. The chevron style lugs has been created with specially designed back-cut tread and shaved carcass areas imitating the real thing. At rotation, the tread still stands tall and provides a hefty edge of forward grip in a variety of conditions. The back-cut section provides a small transition during high-speed corning which conform to changing terrain and obstacles.
The sidewalls have been treated with wording, designs, and descriptions consistent with 1:1 tire during that generation of performance. The low-profile stance of the Renegades stays very flat during race course competition, speed-runs, or general use. The tire carcass profile holds the weight extremely low while the design of the tire beads allows just the right amount of contact patch for gluing and application. The Renegades measure in at ~4.0” W x 6.2”H and are available in two different compounds.
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 “gold” compound feels snappier to the touch, excels on polished or hard surfaces, and expands less during high speeds. Renegades’ tires are complete and include open cell “React” inserts to support the grippy tires.
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 Losi LMT, Traxxas Maxx, 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.Notes: We do recommend upgrading your LMT to use the JConcepts 17mm Hex Axle Kit #2981. This will give you a much stronger setup.
