JConcepts have introduced their new S1 body shell for JQRacing’s TheCar Black Edition nitro and TheE-Car Grey Edition electro buggy kits. First developed for the 2012 IFMAR World Championships, the Silencer has been a mainstay in the JConcepts product line which is available for a number of difference vehicles in the market. The JQRacing buggy has enjoyed a successful run world-wide and JConcepts has now created the iconic Silencer as a drop-fit for the vehicle. For the precise fit, the design has undergone major changes to match the JQ chassis side guards and body mount positioning. The Silencer stance cockpit allows ample room for the air cleaner and fuel tank access, a smoother high-speed windshield transition and increased flow around the engine heat-sink. A deep recess around the engine compartment with dual channeling out the rear provides air escape along with rear-end stability. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling just in front of the rear tires. The extended runner features are placed on the rear-end of the body enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration. The main pods are heavily chamfered and a more heat-shrink design over the pipe, fuel tank and electrical / linkage make up the main pods. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a cock-pit “shark fin” for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness. The body is available in lightweight and ultra lightweight variants and includes window masks and a decal sheet.
Also available for the Black and Grey Edition buggies is a front scoop set. The front scoop attaches to the front tower on the buggy and has shown to produce enhanced steering characteristics. The front scoop includes 2 pieces per package so a driver has enough to outfit their nitro and e-buggy with the same package.
