Cactus Classic is an Orange Crush for JConcepts

Posted: 3/19/2009

JConcepts TQ’s and wins 2 of 3 modified classes at the Cactus Classic.

To bring everyone up to speed, it is tough to win at the Cactus Classic. Only the very best equipment survives, and at the biggest electric race of the year JConcepts again had the goods that everyone was looking for. The goods included JConcepts Bar Codes tires and the Illuzion Hi-Flow bodies and accessories. JConcepts driver Ryan Maifield was again spectacular, driving his Team Associated T4 and B4, but the difference were the Bar Codes. Never before has Ryan enjoyed a tire advantage at The Cactus Classic but this year was different. Using an assortment of JConcepts compounds White, Blue and Orange, Ryan was able to perfectly tune his vehicles to the track conditions at hand giving him an edge that did not exist in the past.

However, Ryan Maifield was not the only JConcepts driver in on the action. Lee Martin, Frank Root and Kody Numedahl all made 2 out of 3 modified A-mains using the JConcepts combination. The hot ticket in the truck class were Bar Codes all the way around. Utilizing the asymmetrical design, drivers could alter the handling characteristics and tune the tires to a specific time of day or front to rear balance. 2wd and 4wd drivers also used the Bar Code design but tuned using compound versus tread direction. Blue compound provided the early morning grip while White and Orange provided the grip to finish the day and beat the heat.

JConcepts onsite representative Jon Faulkner had this to say immediately following the final A-mains. “I was very proud of the entire team this weekend. Ryan Maifield was committed to the JConcepts product from day 1 and it turned out to be an advantage. A lot of credit has to be given to Ryan, he was extremely focused and determined to show he had the best combination available, he really earned it.”

When it comes to high performance tires, wheels, bodies and accessories, it is time to consider JConcepts.
