The Code of Silence has been broken at JConcepts, and the Bar Codes are out. The Bar Code design is the freshest tire design seen in the last 10 years of racing development regardless of class and scale. Like the name suggests the alternating bar design combined with the addition of the Y side bars provide uncompromised support for blue and black groove conditions. Now available in Orange compound the Bar Codes are a specialty tire that when matched to the appropriate track can provide amazing results.

The Bar Codes are a part of the JConcepts special breed of tire, designed for maximum performance when new or used as the design allows even wear all the way down to the tire body.

Bar Codes in new condition excel on hard surfaces that have taken rubber with either dry or wet grooved conditions. Worn Bar Codes excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks where a minimal dust groove has formed.

2009 Cactus Classic is an Orange Crush for JConcepts

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.

When it comes to high performance tires, wheels, bodies and accessories, winners choose JConcepts.
