This is a set of two JConcepts Rips 2.2 Front Buggy Tires. Steering control and consistency is one of the most important aspects of 1/10th 2wd buggy racing. JConcepts has optimized a 3 rib front tire design by altering the rib depth, attack angle and multiple radius corners to give 2wd racers a smooth new option. Tiny ribbing has been added on the upper sidewall to provide a fresh edge during hard and high impact corners. Already a proven tire, JConcepts Rips in prototype form were used to TQ at the Arizona State Championships and JConcepts Clash.

Use these on my b5m factory lites. These are excellent front tires for a gritty, dirty, loose home built track. They last a vey long time.

JConcepts Rips 2.2" 2WD Front Buggy Tires (2) (Gold)
Very nice tire for Kyosho's rerelease 2WD Turbo Scorpion with it's 2.2" wheels.

This tire looks skinnier and has a slightly smaller diameter than the original Rere T-Scorp tire, thus providing a better retro look and lowers the otherwise high nose of this buggy.

Those tires stick very well to any surface, hot/cold and wet/dry.

Only in snowy conditions, the 2WD T-Scorp didn't handle nicely, but I have yet to find the 2WD front tire which works really in such special conditions. The main problem with the 2WD buggy is the fact that the front tires will clog up and eventually working like slicks...
The 4WD doesn't have the same problems, the front tires are "shaking" off the snow from their profile the same as the rear ones.

JConcepts Rips 2.2" 2WD Front Buggy Tires (2) (Green)
Got them to run on a pretty loose outdoor dirt track, and the hold grip very well. Put a few hours through them and there's no sign of wear.
