Seen at last weekend’s JConcepts Winter Indoor Nationals, the new Finnisher 1/10th truck body for the T4.2 racing truck is now available. The slight cab forward, raked windshield and aggressive stance highlight a performance oriented core. A revised front hood scoop allows plenty of clearance for the redesigned front-end T4.2 geometry while smoothing out the front down force area. Front chin spoiler, headlight and grill protect the front-end from unwanted up-drafts during flight while the supplied decals stand-out like an 18 wheeler. Like the ROAR National Champion Hi-Flow SCT body, the T4.2 body has built-in air escape passages which allow the customer to fine-tune the body for maximum outdoor performance. The new body includes the high performance gurney spoiler which increases rear grip and balances the handling characteristics of the aggressively styled body.

Seen in a teaser image a while back Protoform have now released full details on the all-new PFL128 race body. This body takes styling cues from a “new for 2013” LMP2 racer slated to run in the WEC Championship along with 24h of Le Mans. Air management and body rigidity were the prime considerations when re-designing the front fenders and lengthening the side recesses. The PFL128 meets all EFRA (#31531), IFMAR and ROAR body rule requirements and includes headlamp decals, as per ROAR rules. It is available in three weights of genuine lexan: . 040” (regular weight), .030” (light weight) and .025 Lexan® (PRO-lite weight for expert racers only). Included with the PFL128 is protective outer film, body side-stiffeners (w/hardware) and decal sheet.
