JConcepts Super Cup final round report

The final round of the JConcepts Super Cup 2011 season was host at Daytona, FL during the Thanksgiving weekend and was the decider of the series winner in many classes. Due to the interesting characteristic of the Daytona track it causes many drivers to struggle. The track quickly builds up a groove during the practice day but still didn’t have traction like other FL track, due to the amount of sand. Many drivers were fighting for traction while eating tires like sandpaper. Drivers needed to adapt quickly in order to finish races making this one of the hardest track conditions to race on.

JConcepts Finnisher for TLR22 & DEX210

JConcepts Finnisher for TLR22 & DEX210

JConcepts have introduced 2 new Finnisher shells for the TLR22 and the new Durango DEX210 2wd chassis’. Increased windshield angle provides a steady force upfront during mid-flight wind gusts on large jumps while the forward cab placement changes performance / visible bias which helps steering rotation in low traction corners. The side-pods have been simplified and JC styled to remove unwanted changes in height to neutralize the at-speed handling. The chassis to body fit has been tightened up and with the addition of fastening hook and loop tape, eliminates empty voids that contribute to mid-flight directional changes. The rear of the cab has a new step feature and a louver which can be trimmed to allow air to escape at the top of the body through its V-shaped design. Body bodies are a drop fit onto their respective cars. In addition to the newly designed body, JConcepts has included 2 of the latest 6.5″ wide Hi-Clearance rear wings.
