Andy and Jason can speak to the motivation to build the tire.

I'll share with you some things I discovered during some testing with racers of all skill levels driving Traxxas Slashes in RTR and Mod configurations.

When testing the JConcepts Goosebump tires, the group I found who were the happiest and benefited the most were the Novice and beginner RC Racers. At the time we were only using them on the Traxxas vehicle.

Everyone who tried them (beginner to accomplished racer) were really excited about the performance, but the Novice were the ones the happiest.

The test track was a loamy surface, so stock Slash and Proline Switch still lacked grip for people without good throttle control. You could often sense the frustration build as many new racers struggle with a 2wd vehicle on low grip dirt tracks.

Once I put the SCT Goosebumps on their trucks, they were able to control their vehicles, make laps, and really feel like they accomplished something.

Its made me seriously consider the added benefit this type of tire provides to new and unskilled racers. That being better control of a 2wd vehicle which in turn increases the likelyhood they will continue to participate in the sport.

Visually, the tires look true to the class during operation.

The 17 Truck has Goosebumps, the 21 Truck is running Traxxas Tires.

We wanted to offer everyone another option to use with their trucks. The introduction of the SC10 marks another step in the evolution of the class, and another step closer to it becoming a serious racing category. There are no ill intentions with the product if thats what you're getting at...

JD provides a little information about one of the uses for the tire below...

thank you, that answered my question because I bought one and was hoping to race but was worried the whole treaded tire deal would keep the trucks from being as raceable except on groomed high bite tracks and since most aren't I was hoping someone would come out with a more evolutionary option. will be ordering up 2 sets today

Ordered two RC8e bodies, and some tires. Hope the bodies get here by next week, I'll be showing it off at the Lake Erie Shootout in electric 1/8th class. Might not be the fastest, but it'll have the best looking body!

Ive not run a 13.5 in a WE personally...but Im thinking in the 25-26 range if you have the 78 spur. Make sure you check the temps the first time you run it though...
