As years go by, certain items and trends are often looked back on with gratitude. The late 1980’s and early 1990’s was built on pin style tires, and JConcepts is re-imagining a vintage tire line-up from 1991 and adapting them to a 1.9” front 2wd wheel. The Step Spike, built on a small radius carcass to fit the Hazard #3358 and Mono #3437 front wheels are designed for today’s compounds and with optimized pin spacing and placement are built to work in dirty and loamy conditions.
Step Spikes on the front of a 2wd buggy appear very rugged and capable of turning inside of just about anything in wet surface conditions. When dirt sticks to the tires, these style tires dig hard with their dual and step spike construction providing two layers of rubber to bury into deep rooted conditions. The square and bottom block is positioned 90 degrees to the surface carcass and is a platform for the cone type pin which bends and flexes with surface terrain.
The pins terminate very early and near the sidewall, so drivability is easier in 180-degree corners. A very small rib is placed on the sidewall to help control flexibility and provides a finishing touch to the appearance of the classic front tire combination. Re-imagining the RC industry is a new phase of development where custom creators and designers look back on the golden age and add a touch of modern-day technology to older concepts. The Step Spike is one of those items, and wouldn’t it been nice to take it back in time with you to 1991?
