JConcepts has released their new F2l 1:8 Buggy/Truck wing. With their drivers routinely searching for the ultimate aero package on the 1:8 off-road scene, JConcepts is directly on top of the latest trends with the release of the F2I rear wing. F2I relates to Finnisher related items morphing into a 2nd generation and this new wing fits the bill perfectly. Adding the “I” relates to it being IFMAR competition legal in terms of its side-dams being large enough to comply with rules and procedure on the world-wide racing scene.
Aerodynamics are quite the buzz and the design of the wing is rather traditional with a flat base. Across the width, the 5 individual dividers add straight-line stability and connects the upper and lower deck. Drop louvers on each side split the deck-height funnelling air flow through the core and up to the gurney. The industry first design featuring a built-in gurney eliminates the need to add additional pieces, hardware or items which are clumsy. As with all JConcepts injection molded wings, the side dams are recessed for decals to rest without being exposed directly across its plane. The offset decal plane also provides some stability to the highly impacted area and removes a slight amount of weight. To make mounting easier, JConcepts has added a handy grid area underneath to help position the wing side to side and fore and aft for the utmost versatility.
