JConcepts T6.1 F2 truck body shell

JConcepts’ popular F2 buggy body shell design is now also available for the Team Associated T6.1 stadium truck. One of the key features is an arrow based design where the front is much narrower than the rear. While viewed from the top down, the F2 body has increased clearance in the front-end for tyres shown to rub against the stock body during hard cornering or while running in high-traction conditions. The narrower front-end appears on-point and with an all-new grille and headlight layout with four included grille options. The imprint of the nose draws in the truck enthusiast without giving up on the futuristic twist and Finnisher heritage. Protecting the front shock tower area is done with a traditional shape but contains new louver positioning and available air-release features located just in front of the main cab. The cab is important, not only for performance but to set off the F2 design with angular roof and parallel window design. The popular dual side-window treatment has been once again incorporated into the design for maximum coverage. The new body includes the traditional Finnisher “V step-downs” in the bed area which makes it identifiable to the savvy racer. Rear shock tower humps allow plenty of clearance for a front or rear shock configuration which is a common adjustment on the T6.1 race truck. The tail of the body has been lowered with an upper and lower transition making the rear a more durable piece even with light-weight materials. The F2 includes two spoilers, one for high-bite conditions and another taller version for low or medium bite conditions. The spoilers are durable and with proper trimming and included hardware bolt directly to the back of the new shell. A slight flare to each wheel well gives some structure and rigidness to the panels and fine details the design. Between the wheel wells an F2 specific, double drop treatment has been chiseled and tucked into the hourglass shape of the rear-end. The double drop blends into a rocker panel body line which provides some stability to the layout and provides that all-important chassis clearance. As usual the body comes made of clear high-quality polycarbonate and including overspray film and window masks.
