JConcepts Illuzion 8ight 2.0 bodyshell

JConcepts have released their new Illuzion Hi Flow 2.0 body for the Losi 8ight 2.0 buggy. Special consideration has been made for the Hi-Flow 2.0 body in regards to the air filter, side guards, battery box and extra clearance around the throttle and brake linkage, and thanks to JConcepts, the Illuzion body is also a drop fit and requires no hassles when installing or removing the body. In addition, JConcepts has taken the frustration out of the stock body design and has eliminated the front nose piece for extra durability and functionality around the front body mount.  Race inspired aggressive styling, Illuzionized cab and durable design are just some of the features that make this new body stand out.
