JConcepts A2R 190mm TC body

The JConcepts team is back with a follow-up to their A1R touring car body, with the release of the new A2R. The new drivers body has fundamental differences necessary for performance starting straight-away in the front-end area. The shrunken front-end is considerably laid-back, shortening the nose allowing the force to be placed over the front tires. A-pillar rails extend over the hood for some air deflection straight over the nose and strengthens the front wheel well area. The front windshield is tucked back inside the rails sunk and connected to the aggressive roofline giving the A2R its distinctive shape. Behind the front wheel well and in front of the rear wheel well is a definitive edge that strengthens the openings and also provides better race posture. A hard edge runs the bottom of the rocker-panel providing more grit to the design while also providing extra front to rear rigidity.

Moving to the rear section of the body, the trunk area has plenty of deck overhang. The rear overhang is important, a critical part of the body which controls down-force and provides the placement for the rear wing. A small kick-up or built-in spoiler at the tail end of the body helps stabilise the car at high-speed. To complete the look and finish, the bubbled roof profile and minimally structured greenhouse area allows the body to blast high-speed sections. Included in each body set, a JConcepts A-One decal sheet and paint mask for all windows. The rear wing option is light-weight and high-downforce with separate side-dams for the ultimate stability. To attach the rear wing, 3mm mounting hardware and plastic nuts are included to complete the light-weight assembly.
