JConcepts RC10 Detonator Worlds bodyshell

JConcepts RC10 Detonator Worlds bodyshell

JConcepts introduce the Detonator Worlds bodyshell for the Team Associated RC10 buggy. The spirit of the Detonator lives in the 1990’s, starting with the rear biased, over rear tower, hung cab, super large window detail. The side-pods are simple, yet effectively cover the iconic aluminium tub chassis and skate by the latest in inboard electrical gear. Hard-edge chamfering along the sides of the body provides a current and trimmed look while one large side window, stands out giving that unique 90’s racer style. The front of the body slides just inside the front shock tower and nose brace tubes and gradually rises up to a centre inlet scoop built into the hood. Included in each Detonator package is a 5.5″ wing that is designed to fit flat and sits down and hugs the back of the body. The wing side-dams are finished off with a little inspiration from today with the leading edge angled and already in attack mode. Included with the clear bodyshell, that is usable with the RC10 Classic, RC10 Worlds rel-release as well as vintage RC10′s, come window masks and a decal sheet.
