With victories all over the world and back-to-back ROAR National Championships, the Hazard has established itself as the go-to wheel for Short Course racing on the Team Associated SC10, SC10 4×4 and TLR 22 SCT and Losi SCT-E. With advancements and perspective changing within the Short Course Class and driver preferences focusing more exclusively on performance, JConcepts has added a much anticipated accessory to the line-up.

JConcepts SC10 front body mount

JConcepts adds another top quality carbon fiber accessory to the already hefty list for the SC10 line of vehicles with the SC10 front body mount. Support of the body mass is very critical in SCT performance and shoring up the front body mount flexibility was a major focus with this new front body mount. Heavy-duty but light-weight, 3mm carbon fiber is the base of the design which follows along the geometry and stock mounting holes on the SC10 front shock tower. Recessed portions allow for the adjustable mount towers to drop straight into place and fasten with the stock socket-head hardware. Some aesthetically pleasing pockets have been machined into the face of the mount, lowering the overall weight of the part and for brand recognition.

JConcepts Slash 4×4 Platinum over-tray

Fitting nicely under the body it hugs the outside dimension of the Low CG Slash and Rally chassis protecting the inside from unwanted excess dirt and debris build-up during racing conditions.

JConcepts body mount braces

Short Course trucks are very body sensitive. The proper body style, cut-outs, overall weight and roll characteristics can determine a properly handling vehicle. The TLR 22 SCT has a very flexible front and rear body mounts which provides several durability advantages but when it comes to performance, having a sturdy base to the body is critical. JConcepts body mount braces perform just as the name suggests and supports the body mount in high-force situations. While in the turns, the weight of the body hangs down in the rear and allows the body to flex toward the tires which causes unwanted handling and aero changes which may contribute to an ill handling vehicle. Simply install the brace as instructed and the body will now remain in a more standardized position on high-bite conditions and during hard corning.
