JConcepts F2 1/8-Scale Truck Body

JConcepts unveiled a new body during the 2021 ROAR Fuel Nationals for the 1/8th truck division. The F2 body was constructed to perform at the highest level using the latest trend of reducing surface area above the shock tower line, reducing the overall weight while maintaining a tight silhouette. No stranger to Truggy bodies, the JConcepts team has developed a successful line of bodies with the Punisher and Finnisher designs, and each has excelled and peaked during ROAR championship events. For the 2021 event, the team focused on a behind tower concept body to fit 5 chassis configurations including the Mugen, Team Associated, TLR, HB, and Tekno.

What stands out on the JConcepts body is the raised nose that planes off the front shock tower. This design and styling were chosen over the buggy style mount to provide a better look, a cleaner and more durable fit and a better overall flow aerodynamically. To mount the F2 body, a carbon fiber adaptor is needed along with the Team Associated #81447 body mounts or Mugen #MUGE2148 (for MBX8T) to place the front of the body in correct position. Each truck has a specific adaptor produced in carbon fiber which bolts directly to the stock tower and once adding the (not included) body mount, provides a custom fit and beautiful finish.

The F2 name arrived after the team decided on using an existing style from the 1/10th stadium truck body already in the JConcepts line-up. The narrow shape, double upper railed cab with inner louvers are undeniable traits carried over to the new truggy performance body. The V-shape off the back of the cab is JConcepts fit, function, and styling from the get-go with a blend to recessed bed area for a low-slung base shape. A strategically placed spoiler outlet in the bed transitions to the mounting area.

The nose cone was prototyped to attach on multiple trucks and ultimately fixed in a protective and performance position. Complete the nose piece with included decal to give the truggy ROAR required headlight and grille placement. The side-pods inspired by the Silencer and Finnisher shells cover a variety of electrical and pipe layouts while showing-off the huge chamfer made popular by the team at JConcepts. The symmetrical pods finish at the body shell’s main structure while the dual and recessed side-windows maintain its unique and low-profile posture and ride-height.

The JConcepts body includes overspray film on top of the body, window mask for quick paint and prep and detailed JConcepts decal sheet. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, support, and developed by professionals with style and authenticity.
