JConcepts Mambos SCT Street Eliminator Drag Racing Rear Tires are a wide-body tire option developed 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 during acceleration. The JConcepts design team thickened the entire carcass, added unique 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 Starfish wide beadlock wheel (JCO3415B). 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 JConcepts Mambos sized wheels (JCO3408B, JCO3409B and JCO3415B).

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 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.

Tried the green compound to replace my worn out blues. Mounted up to the mambos beadlocks nicely. On an outlaw car with 60mph+ trap speeds these tires are completely unusable,great traction but they ballon a ton making the car very unstable. They would probably work great on a 13.5 car or even a 3 second index car but not for outlaw.

Ran these a few passes now on my drag car. So far they have ran pretty dang good. Only thing they get cool quicker than others I've used but would use them again for sure.
