EuroRC Hobby Letter #6 /2021 - Know your Brand - JConcepts

24.2.2021

Hello everyone! Radio Control Car hobby is much about brands and companies that offer us good products to pimp our rides. Here at EuroRC we cater a big bunch of RC brands from big to small. Big brands often shadow the smaller ones and therefore I sometimes want to lift up the smaller ones also! In this weeks Hobby Letter we cast light to small but very well known and famous RC-accessory brand, JConcepts! If you've been around RC more you have probably crossed with their name if nothing else! Let's check out what is JConcepts, where did they come from and what do they have to offer today!

From Jasons Concepts

Most likely you connect the name JConcepts to RC-bodies. This is correct, congratulations! Did you know that they have made also a World Champion winning 4wd buggy kit, BJ4 and Team Associated bought the blueprints? They also have a good selection of RC tires to cover all the niches of RC. JConcepts is a true garage based sweatshop founded and run by one dedicated RC hobbyist and racer, good hearted and overall completely wholesome dude Mr. Jason Ruona, originally a team driver for Team Associated, gained experience and started to think what could be done better here. In year 2003 he designed first "Illuzion" body for RC10B4 and debuted succesfully with it in IFMAR World Champions at Florida. At the same time they were already designing their own concept 4wd racing buggy what was never really meant to be nothing else than a prototype and one-time show off.

The BC4

Jason Ruonas good friend, Brad Reefls had an idea for more competitive buggy and together they smashed up what they had just few moments before the 2003 IFMAR World Champions. Their new design was proven to work at the track conditions more than well so they went further with their plans. Innovative and well designed JConcepts BC4 platform started to gain interest among the racing crowd and during the year 2004 it came clear that the car would go in to limited production. Endless list both national and world championships cement this truck and its legacy to the RC Hall of Fame. The car was in production for several years, including the refined BC4 Worlds Edition that dominated the buggy racing for following seasons. 2007 it was announced that JConcepts had sold the design of their championship winning BJ4 buggy to Team Associated and collaborated on the design of the successor, the legendary B44.

Essentials for RC

RC is nothing without continuous innovation. For JConcepts that has meant successful line of Illuzion racing bodies, first for buggies and later for Short Course trucks. Especially in racing, the body of the RC truck is more than just for looks. Aerodynamics play big role in how the truck behaves. Jconcepts has done great and successful work designing some of the best performing but still good looking bodies for our RC almost 20 years already and many racers think no twice when picking new body for their racing truck. Competition bodies aside, JConcepts has also been active designing some of the coolest Monster truck and Short Course bodies out there and carry the official licence for Ford and General Motors.

Did we mention tires yet? While making the wise decision and leaving the truck kits to Team Associated, JC rolled in the first tires for their now famous tire selection. Ryan Maifield won the Pro Gas Truck event with Team Associated GT2 truck with then new JConcepts Double Dee-tires after sweaty 45 minutes event. Hype around JC's new interesting tires was created and soon every racer around the world wanted to have these superior racing tires of the new generation. Just like with the bodies, later JConcepts has made their selection larger and is now catering basically all kind of required tires, latest add-ons being the Hotties-drag car speed tires and Landmines 1.9" performance scale crawler tires.

To put it in one bucket, JConcepts has played their game right by first making themselves a famous and wanted and then keeping up with the quality. Their growth from the garage floor to respected brand among the racers has also been no less than amazing. Endless list of both national and world championship victories underline this undisputed fact. It is also wise to firmly stay in what you know the best and with JC today it means well designed quality bodies and top of the notch tires for your RC!
