Mambos, Gold Compound, Drag Racing Rear Tire, Fits 3408 / 3409 / 3415 Wheels

Mambos by JConcepts is a 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 inner sidewall ribbing on the inside and outside, and an industry first waffle inner weight reduction pattern. The waffle pattern accomplishes two things, weight reduction, and resistance to expansion, to split the difference between a heavily restricted belted tire and a tire with no inner structure.

Another exciting feature designed into the sidewall is the ability to add a beadlock style wheel such as the 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 the 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 body shell while maintaining the crisp response of a race tire. Mambos have raised lettering which can be detailed for shows or displays. The JConcepts tires include the Mambos carcass forming closed-cell, black 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.

Gold compound = clay compound, soft feel with medium expansion rate and recommended for warm or prepped surfaces. The surface temperature should be either above 90 degrees or treated / prepped.
