The latest off-road vehicle to receive JConcepts’ Finnisher body treatment is the TLR 8ight-T 3.0 1/8th scale truggy. The slight cab forward design, raked windshield and aggressive stance highlight a performance-oriented core while the wide front hood scoop allows plenty of clearance for the unique 8ight-T 3.0 shock geometry. An extended front chin spoiler, headlight and grill protect the front-end from unwanted up-drafts during flight while a built-in air escape passage on the roof allows the customer to fine-tune the body for maximum outdoor performance. The new body includes champion rear name plates which provide additional high-speed stability and the overall handling has been improved by balancing the bias between the cab location and rear wing placement which control the majority of the aero affects of the aggressively styled body.
