Drag racing continues its rise in the radio control scene and the street eliminator cars are hot commodities. As racers manage to successfully tune in for more performance, they also ask for more options. The Starfish wheel by JConcepts is a 5 spoke option delivered in time for the most hardcore street racers. The Starfish wheel is designed with a high 3D impression and made from durable proprietary materials. The actual design has a thickness throughout the spoke area but is completely recessed on the inside for weight reduction and engineering returns.
During the early part of the 2020 racing season, the JConcepts designers went to work on new drag racing designs and arrived at several new front and rear wheel combinations. The new combinations were mocked up and blasted down the scale track at record speeds during testing and, just like that, the wheels were production ready. The front wheel design extends to the outer edges giving the wheel a larger look while the inner ribbing is part of the wheel design.
The inner structure connects to the outer ring with reinforcement ribs to help stabilize the wheel. Starfish wheels feature a 2.2” size which match to just about any existing front buggy tire on the market. The wheels fit a vast number of vehicles for anyone looking to undertake a Street Eliminator project and accept a 12mm hex drive. Popular vehicles which can use the Starfish wheels include, the Traxxas Slash, Bandit, Rustler as well as the popular line-up of Team Associated short course trucks and now, the purpose built DR10.
The matte black and stealth look give the wheels serious street appearance and look ultra-low under any race car. JConcepts branding and wheel name line the outer boundary of the wheel giving additional detail and name recognition. The new wheels match perfectly with JConcepts Hotties tires (#3193 front) for the Street Eliminator look.
