Check out the latest Garage video where Jason takes us through his personal Associated B5M and goes over the products he uses to improve performance.
FINNISHER - RC10B5M BODY
The Finnisher sports a smoother high-speed transition with increased flow past the side-pods that lends itself perfect to high-speed circuits. As track conditions have advanced through additives, treatments and maintenance, the ultimate aero package flows through the turns, produces traction and jumps with consistency. During the most critical moments, the Finnisher has very stable driving characteristics that can translate into efficient qualifying and main event results.
SILENCER – RC10B5M BODY
A profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit and forward raised side-pod gives the Silencer an immediate fighting appearance. A smooth, high-speed transition around the cab, keeps the Silencer heading in the right direction. Just behind the shock tower rests a small scoop which can be trimmed as air-in or air-out or just left untrimmed adding some redirection at high-speed. A slight recess just behind the cab with channeling out the rear provides rear-end stability. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling in just in front of the rear tires. The rear side-pods angle sharply toward the shock tower and wing, enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.
SILENCER – RC10B5 BODY
The JConcepts design team has spent many hours in development with leading team drivers to develop a new high-speed style body, specifically for the latest circuits. One of the most recognizable items, the Silencer body style, has now been designed for perfect fit and finish on the Team Associated RC10B5 buggy. The main pods are heavily chamfered near the rear and lightly toward the front allowing plenty of paint and decal access. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a cock-pit "shark fin" for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.
6.5" HI-CLEARANCE WING (RC10B5, B5M)
1/10th buggies are very dependent on the rear wing for traction, flight control and balance. The Hi-Clearance wing from JConcepts incorporates several important elements making it the most versatile JConcepts wing yet. JConcepts has joined the high-performance wing into a paired combination that is easier to trim, detail and finish. Each performance wing package now includes 2 wings for added value to the customer.
RC10B5 | B5M, TITANIUM KNURL TIP FRONT AXLE
The JConcepts front axle design is based around high-quality Titanium construction, and a knurled axle tip for finger control and access. Finger control gives the mechanic a grippy place to rest a finger so the front tire doesn’t rotate easily during changes making the process quicker and with less frustration. The design also eliminates screws and other items which are hard to inspect for issues which limit performance and add additional weight. The light-weight, free spinning design includes axle roll-pins to allow easy assembly of a necessary but (not included) clamping hex adaptor.
RC10B5 | B5M, ULTRA FRONT WHEEL HEXES
Part# 2347-1 (Blue) Part# 2347-2 (Black)
Converting the front of the RC10B5 or B5M to an ultra, light-weight aluminum hex adaptor set from JConcepts is quick and simple. The hex adaptors are precision machined, blue or black anodized and feature a fluted design eliminating unnecessary rotating weight. The aluminum material combined with clamping design and light-weight styling provides utmost durability and all-important functionality. Installation is simple, slide on the hex to either the JConcepts Titanium axle (#2346T) or standard AE axle (#91408) and cinch the 2.0mm screw with slight pressure to maintain position.
RC10B5 | B5M, ULTRA REAR WHEEL HEXES
Part# 2348-1 (Blue) Part# 2348-2 (Black)
Converting the rear of the RC10B5 or B5M to an ultra, light-weight aluminum hex adaptor set from JConcepts is quick and simple. The hex adaptors are precision machined, blue or black anodized and feature a fluted design eliminating unnecessary rotating weight. The aluminum material combined with clamping design and light-weight styling provides utmost durability and all-important functionality. Installation is simple, slide on the hex to the standard rear axle and cinch the 2.0mm screw with slight pressure to maintain position.
4MM LARGE FLANGE SERRATED LOCKNUT
Part# 2341-1 (Blue) Part# 2341-2 (Black)
These high precision wheel nuts are designed with a large flanged area for additional support against the wheel and serrated for locking security. The large flange and clamping surface area supports the wheel and helps maintain geometry during flex and load. The larger area also provides more footing for the serrated area which provides a more comfortable lock-down.
RC10B5 FIN TURNBUCKLE SET
JConcepts is Titanium with the introduction of the Fin turnbuckle sets designed specifically for style, durability and performance. The base of the shafts design is centered around a .143” titanium hex size which gradually tapers down into a 3mm thread base design which accepts standard JC and AE ball-cup configurations. The focus of the styling surrounds the lengthened adjustment hex area and the “finned” cuts that rotate about the center.
RC10B5 | B5M ALUMINUM FRONT SUSPENSION BRACE
Part# 2351-1 (Blue) Part# 2351-2 (Black)
JConcepts is once again on point with the release of the aluminum front suspension brace for the Team Associated RC10B5 and RC10B5M vehicles. The all aluminum machined and anodized brace is spot on in terms of geometry, fit, finish and position. The edging has been slightly chamfered to remove sharp corners and adds extra luster to an already polished looking piece. The tightened design eliminates extra bulk and weight with deep cutouts. The perimeter ledge has a hefty chamfer which provides slightly more front clearance during hard landings and corning.
RC10B5 | B5M ALUMINUM MOTOR MOUNT - HONEYCOMB
Part# 2353-1 (Blue) Part# 2353-2 (Black)
JConcepts has rolled out a sweet looking replacement motor plate for the popular RC10B5 and RC10B5M vehicles. With the evolution of race tracks, high flying jumps are becoming the normal obstacle. It’s inevitable that a driver will have a miscue and challenge the rear-end durability of the vehicle. Your racing friends over at JConcepts have taken a lot into consideration while designing and developing a replacement motor plate.
RC10B5M FOXY 2.5MM CARBON FIBER BATTERY BRACE
The Foxy battery brace by JConcepts is highly functional and aesthetic eye-candy, designed from genuine 2.5mm Carbon Fiber, it performs as good as it looks. With so much variety in today’s batteries and with most vehicles having a flexible mounting position forward and aft, functionality is always a top priority. With the new battery brace, running different battery positions is possible while maintaining the necessary terminal clearance and providing a healthy holding force to keep everything in tact even in the most demanding conditions or the inevitable crash.
RC10B5 FOXY, 2.5MM CARBON FIBER BATTERY BRACE
Battery braces are a highly visual and critical part of any electric R/C vehicle. They provide the security of the main power source on the vehicle as well as provide a look and feel to each vehicle while giving the user a quick way of accessing and performing a battery change or routine maintenance to the vehicle.
A high-end item used for many years on the performance side of R/C racing is the chassis protective sheet. For years, drivers have hand-cut and fitted their chassis with a clear material protecting the new chassis look and also providing a smooth or slick surface to decrease friction between chassis and dirt surfaces. JConcepts has hit the easy and glamour button at the same time and is now offering a precut and graphically pleasing chassis protective sheet for the most popular 1/10th off-road vehicles on the market. With 2 pieces included per package, the durable and low-resistance material fits each chassis layout like a glove and adds protection and style in one easy package.

The Dirt Webs, the ultimate Bar-Tire, relies heavily on the Web-treatment for massive forward acceleration; however, the design does not stop there. Inside the supported bar portion rests horizontal and vertical alternating bars which help balance side-bite and backs up the Web-Bars to help minimize wear. Down in the corners, small Pressure Point sized pins break-in quickly providing surface area for specialty indoor racing and also lend a helping hand to stabilize the tire in extreme high-grip conditions.
JConcepts has upped the ante with the release of the new Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts. Gray in color, the new inserts are designed in conjunction with tire insert guru, Brian “Dirt” Kinwald to bring the ultimate touch and feel while providing utmost durability. The JConcepts design, with custom sculpted features, are blended into the newly developed material providing racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.
