JConcepts 22 2.0 Finnisher mid motor bodyshell

JConcepts 22 2.0 Finnisher mid motor bodyshell

JConcepts introduce the Finnisher bodyshell specially designed for the TLR 22 2.0 2WD buggy in mid motor configuration. Development with the help of Ryan Maifield, the Finnisher for the 22 is a completely tightened design, slimming the overall look of the vehicle. The body sports a smoother high-speed transition with increased flow past the side-pods that lends itself perfect to high-speed circuits. A single angle starting near the steering assembly ending at the widest point in the middle of the chassis adds driving consistency and improved “at-speed” handling. As track conditions have advanced through additives, treatments and maintenance, the ultimate aero package flows through the turns, produces traction and jumps with consistency. Included with the body come two 6.5″ wide Hi-Clearance wings.
