Ryan Maifield’s cars are always the first place to look for any new Jason Ruona bits n’ bobs, and at the weekend’s Alabama Manufacturers’ Shootout, the JConcepts factory driver failed to disappoint as he turned up with a brand new ‘Finnisher named’ 1/8 truck body – suiting the TLR 8ight truck, as well as a new lexan rear wing we believe.
(we haven’t seen it before!) Actually turns out we have, Maifield ran it at Silver state and at NeoX.
The body comes just in time for the ROAR Gas Offroad nats which take place in just over two week’s time in Chico, California at Silver Dollar RC Raceway. Stay tuned for more details in due course.

VP-PRO has released their latest body creation, this time designed for the HongNor X3 1/8 buggy. The body features a sleek and low-profile cab forward design that is intended to reduce body weight and maximize stability and speed. The body is made up of high quality 1.0mm clear Lexan. While VP-PRO has clearly put clever thought into the design, the same cannot be said for the name of the body as it has been given no catchy title, but instead simply labeled the ‘CB-HNX3-CL’ body.

The JConcepts design team has spent many hours in development with leading team drivers to develop a new high-speed style body, specifically for the latest circuits. One of the most recognizable items, the Silencer body style, has now been designed for perfect fit and finish on the Kyosho ZX6 buggy.
The main pods are lightly chamfered front and rear allowing plenty of paint and decal access. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a cock-pit “shark fin” for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.

Pro-Line’s Protoform brand has announced the release of their fisrt body for 1:10 scale rally and short course trucks the ‘PFRX Rallycross’. An oversized rally-style front grille, exaggerated fender flares and sport-compact sedan design give the PFRX an unmistakable look. The PFRX Rallycross is a direct fit on the Traxxas® 1/10 Rally VXL and Team Associated ProRally, but will also fit short course trucks such as the Pro-Line PRO-2 SC. To use on your Slash®, Slash® 4×4, or other short course truck, you will require the appropriate Pro-Line Extended Body Mounts and may require additional body trimming and/or bumper modifications.

JConcepts is here to support the re-emergence of stadium truck with a Finnisher body which drop fits on to the TLR 22-T 2.0 racing truck. The #0291 body incorporates pre-dimpled locations for the hottest new truck on the circuit. The slight cab forward, raked windshield and aggressive stance highlight a performance oriented core. A revised front hood scoop allows plenty of clearance for the unique 22-T geometry while smoothing out the front down force area. Front chin spoiler, headlight and grill protect the front-end from unwanted up-drafts during flight while the supplied decals detail stand-out like an 18 wheeler.
Like the ROAR National Champion Hi-Flow SCT body, the Finnisher body has built-in air escape passages which allow the customer to fine-tune the body for maximum outdoor performance. The new body includes the high performance gurney spoiler which increases rear grip and balances the handling characteristics of the aggressively styled body. Recently, at the 2015 Cactus Classic, Ryan Maifield used the Finnisher body on the 22-T and won over a stacked field of competition. 1/10th stadium truck racing is back, JConcepts style.

Leadfinger Racing has announced the release of their newest ‘Assassin’ body for the Serpent Cobra B-e. Serpent driver, Dylan Gerard, has come on board LFR to help with the project. Together, hours of design and testing have gone into the new shell.
“We were looking for even distribution of down force – front and rear, with a new cab forward design. The result is a body that keeps the car more planted, provides level jumping and better corner traction. Straight line stability is increased with the Assassin’s rear swoop design by directing air flow directly to the wing. LFR Assassin bodies are thicker lexan for durability and come with clear masking for ease of painting.”

This is a Pro-Line Enforcer Clear Body for Tekno NT48. Attention All Tekno Fans! Pro-Line has a brand new aftermarket Truggy body that is way more durable and better looking than stock: The Enforcer! From the mind of Ty Tessmann and inspired from the success of the Type-Rbuggy body, the Enforcer has a meaner and more angular front end look with swooping roof and bed sections for improved airflow and high-speed stability. The hood of the body is steeper to create more down force over the front wheels for more steering and faster lap times. Bring your truck up to speed with Pro-Line’s new Enforcer body! This is a must have item for the new racing season!
Part #: 3451-00 | Available from 21st April

Raceform has launched a first look at their all-new ‘Stealth’ series bodies. The first (pictured above) is designed to fit JQRacing’s THECar. As you can see it provides a variety of twists and turns for a unique look, balance, aerodynamics, and downforce. More models for various other brand cars are set to be released soon. In addition to the new body, Raceform has shared a look at their rendition of the increasingly popular Lexan 1/8 buggy wing. No official word has been released on the new wing, but the design looks promising so far.
