COIL MAMBOS REAR WHEEL – STREET ELIMINATOR 2.2 X 3.0″ 12MM HEX REAR WHEEL (Chrome Painted)
JConcepts is dropping another great Mambos width wheel into the hands of drag racers with the introduction of the Coil. Managing a successful race program is the name of the game in radio control drag racing but having the look, fit and finish is just an important to the overall performance. Designed from scratch, the 2.2 x 3.0” Coil, wide-stance wheel has a 5 count circular base of geometry making it look quite majestic. The base design also connects the inner ribbing thanks to the clever design and layout.
Racers individually look for separation from the competition and ways to make their vehicles stand-out. The Coil wide-stance 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 development, the new wheel was mocked up and tested for competition and mounted to the (#3117) Mambos rear tire with great results. The wheel design extends to a mock beadlock giving the wheel a sinister look while the face of the wheel is offset deep behind the bead for added depth.
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 use the Coil 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. The new wheels match perfectly with JConcepts tires for the complete Street Eliminator look.

MAMBOS – DRAG RACING REAR TIRE
A lot of chatter in the RC community brought the team to producing a new tire in a much wider configuration. Mambos by JConcepts is the latest wide-body tire built specifically for RC Drag Racing. At the heart of this design is the 2.2 x 3.0” configuration but stretched out to create a larger contact patch. Forward traction is the name of the game and the goal of the larger area, in theory, gives a racer a slight advantage in the “hook and go” department.
One of the tricky aspects to drag racing rear tires is tire expansion and controlling this aspect of power and acceleration. The JConcepts design team thickened the entire carcass, added new inner sidewall ribbing on the inside and outside and then an industry first waffle inner weight reduction pattern. The waffle pattern accomplishes 2 things, weight reduction and provides some resistance to expansion to split some difference between a heavily restricted belted tire and a tire with no inner structure.
Dialing in the tire is a racers job but starting with a great base setup is key and the Mambos have all the elements of a successful design. Another exciting feature designed into the sidewall is the ability to add a beadlock style wheel such as the new Starfish wide beadlock wheel (#3415B). The rear tire has an inspired look with a wide-body footprint so the driver can feel the straight-line forward stability with very light rolling resistance. The 2.2 x 3.0″ size makes it traditional in feel but because of its width, fits a new line of Mambos sized wheels such as the (#3408B, 3409B and beadlock 3415B).
The rear tire is designed as a low-profile shape to fit inside close quarters of a vehicle and body shell while maintaining the crisp response of a race tire. Mambos have raised lettering which can be detailed for shows or displays or simply left without for a sleepy yet devastating look. A new feature included on the sidewall is a double arrow which can be colored to indicate direction. The JConcepts tires include the Mambos carcass forming closed-cell, black in color Dirt-Tech inserts known for their durability, performance, and consistency.
Notes from the team –
The Mambos tires are rated for a maximum of Street Eliminator 2S power only. They are not guaranteed against any running damage from extreme power situations from anything above and beyond the rating. The tires are not belted, only reinforced with internal rubber ribbing.
Blue compound = soft feel, medium to high expansion rate and recommended for all weather conditions. Ideally, the surface temperature range should be 90 degrees or below.
