Made for 1/10th scale monster trucks such as the Traxxas Stampede and HPI Wheely King is JConcepts’ new Ford F-250 Super-Duty SuperCab bodyshell. Resembling the 2011 variant of Ford’s popular pick-up truck, the body features the SuperCab design with recessed and sliding rear window treatment mated with spot-on wheel well size for a mini monster and fender flares that blend to form the unmistakable Super Duty look. The bed area is flat and resembles that smooth bed cover look of the full-scale monster vehicles. The structure of the bed features ridged detail, tailgate and rear roll-pan look with scale touches, finish off the design. Includes without the clear bodyshell come window masks and a full decal sheet.
JConcepts have introduced the new B6-series Aero short chord rear wing. The new Aero wing has intriguing details, a leading edge that drops below the mounting point that acts in a scooping manner. What separates the new wing from the standard is the shorter deck length, otherwise known as the “chord length”. The shorter chord has less rear overhang allowing for quicker rotation in the 180 degree turns and will have less impact in gusty wind conditions or long aerial manoeuvres. The centre channel is just narrow enough for the B6 wing mount assembly but drops the wing at just the correct height and position. The side-dams feature large openings for tyre clearance and expansion. A forward gurney option gives drivers an adjustment that previously hasn’t been available in the class and clipped rear corners help minimise flex breakage which is so common on 1/10th off-road racing machines. The joint wing assembly includes two wing pieces suitable for both the B6 and B6D buggy.
JConcepts have introduced the Aero front wings for the Kyosho RB6 and RB6.6. Front wings are not a new concept, however, they are new to the latest generation of mid-motor vehicles and demanding high-speed and grippy circuits. The latest vehicle to receive JCs “Aero” treatment is Kyosho’s RB6 line of vehicles with the wings being available in a wide and narrow variant, allowing for different aerodynamic setups while the fine-tuning can executed by adjusting the trim-able rear gurney section. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while triple wing mount dimples are included for a bolt-on fit to the popular Kyosho series of vehicles. The wings come in two piece packages including either a pair of wide or narrow wings.
Coming from JConcepts and made for the Xray XB2 buggies are the Aero front wings. Already available for a range of 2WD buggy the tailor-made wings help to fine-tune the buggy’s aerodynamic behaviour. The Aero front wing mounts in “clean air” and is quite easy to trim, use and test without sacrificing all important track time. Available in two widths, the driver can choose either the “narrow” for a lighter feel or “wide” for heavier down force. Each set includes two narrow or two wide wings.
Tailor-made for Yokomo’s YZ2 buggy are JConcepts’ new Aero narrow and wide front wings. Mounted above the front shock tower on the Yokomo YZ2 series of vehicles, the Aero front wing mounts in clean air and is quite easy to trim, use and test without sacrificing all important track time. Available in two widths, the driver can choose either the narrow variant for a lighter feel or the wide wing for heavier down force. The Aero wing features a high-attack design with trim-able rear gurney options. A radical, edgy design which functions and compliments the Finnisher and Silencer body design includes elements and features fresh for the latest off-road conditions. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while triple wing mount dimples are included for a bolt-on fit to the popular Yokomo series of vehicles. The wings come clear and in sets of either two narrow or two wide wings.
JConcepts are busy releasing more 1990’s monster truck bodyshells with the latest offering being the 1993 Ford F-250 SuperCab. Resembling the popular ninth generation truck, the body drops on a variety of long monster trucks which range from 12.5″ to 13” wheelbase. Included come a comprehensive decal sheet, window masks and also an attachable Racerback.
JConcepts have introduced the Finnisher bodyshell for the Team Associated RC8T3 and T3e. Winner of the 2016 ROAR National Championship in the hands of Spencer Rivkin, the body features a slight cab forward, raked windshield and aggressive stance. A wide front hood scoop allows plenty of clearance for front suspension and the body incorporates a large center fin which begins on the roof line and finishes just past the half-way point on the bed. An extended front chin spoiler, headlight and grill protect the front-end from unwanted up-drafts during flight. The body incorporates pre-dimpled body post locations and it also includes champion rear name plates which provide additional high-speed stability and improved positioning of the rear bed rails to strengthen the assembly. 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.
Coming from JConcepts is the 1993 Ford F-250 monster truck bodyshell for 1/10th scale monster trucks. Resembling the highly competitive 9th generation F-250 the body captures the truck’s slightly lower hoodline, rounding the front fenders and grille. The “Blue Oval”, a trademark of all Ford pickups, makes a striking appearance centred in the grille and stout fender flares are carved ever so carefully in to the panels while openings allow for a vast assortment of tires on the market. The bed itself is solid and includes slated details to look like its full-scale counterpart. Light body lines and raised sections are present throughout, including such as fuel tank latch, window weather strip outlines and hood indentations. The hard body line positioned front to back give the truck heart and the “Built Ford Tough” personality. The body comes clear and includes an authentic decal sheet and easy to use window mask for the detailed hobbyist. Also included are an attachable front visor and rear racerback with the parts parts also being available separately to equip JConcepts’ other F-250 bodies.
