JConcepts Finnisher body for +8mm B4.1 & Hi-Clearance wing


Seen for the first time at the recent IFMAR electric off-road World Championships in Finland JConcepts now release the Finnisher body shell for Team Associated B4.1 buggies with +8mm long-wheelbase conversions as well as the Hi-Clearance 6.5″ rear wing. An increased windshield angle provides a steady force upfront during mid-flight wind gusts on large jumps. Forward cab placement changes performance/visible bias which helps steering rotation in low traction corners. The side-pods have been simplified and JC chamfered to remove unwanted changes in height to neutralise the at-speed handling. The chassis to body fit has been tightened up which eliminates empty voids that contribute to mid-flight directional changes. The rear of the cab has a new step feature which allows the placement of a secondary side window and also a louver which can be trimmed to allow air to escape at the top of the body. Included are two of the latest 6.5″ wide Hi-Clearance rear wings.


The Hi-Clearance 6.5″ wing is also available separately. The wing design has been used with success on medium to large sized tracks where fast, at-speed handling is required. The wing feature provides extra clearance for the expansion of tires during high acceleration points and especially on high speed straight-aways. The extra tire clearance also allows for full suspension movement during hard landings and full compression during corning. The 6.5” wing has multiple gurney heights to adjust straight-line stability for all conditions. The wing is marked and dimpled for quick mounting on the B4.1 and B44.1 buggies, the 6.5” wing can also be fit to almost any 1/10th buggy available.

Please note: The complex modification of an extended chassis should be performed by an expert and at the risk of the chassis owner. JConcepts is offering a body for the popular and race winning modification that drivers are asking for.
