The latest vehicle to receive JConcepts’ Silencer bodyshell treatment is the Team Associated B44.3 4WD buggy. The Silencer sports a special design aimed at today’s high-speed tracks with a profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit and forward raised side-pods. A smooth, high-speed transition around the cab keeps the Silencer heading in the right direction while a slight recess just behind the cab with channeling out the rear provides rear end stability. The side pods have a clipped rear end, narrowing the rear by angling in just in front of the rear tyres. The rear side-pods angle sharply toward the shock tower and wing, enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration. Included with the body come two 6.5″ Hi-Clearance rear wings, window masks a decal sheet.
