Pictured above is JConcepts forthcoming Team Associated B5M Silencer body which we understand will be debuted at next week’s Cactus Classic in the USA.
Pro-Line have released the above preview of their forthcoming B5M Phantom design body shell which has been based on their previous releases yet adapted for the mid motor Team Associated buggy.
JConcepts introduces their new Silencer body shell for the TLR 22-4 buggy which features a profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit and forward raised side-pod that gives the Silencer an immediate fighting appearance. A smooth, high-speed transition around the cab, keeps the Silencer heading in the right direction. Just behind the shock tower rests a small scoop which can be trimmed as air-in or air-out or just left untrimmed adding some redirection at high-speed.
Love them or hate them, TLR have released a new cab forward body for their 22-4 4WD buggy. Available clear and pre-cut their new release features the usual array of cab forward design characteristics including the steep angled windscreen and accompanying rear fin.
JConcepts introduce their new Silencer RC10B5 body which also includes two 6.5” Hi-Clearance wings… A profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit and forward raised side-pod gives the Silencer an immediate fighting appearance. A smooth, high-speed transition around the cab, keeps the Silencer heading in the right direction. Just behind the shock tower rests a small scoop which can be trimmed as air-in or air-out or just left untrimmed adding some redirection at high-speed.
Over the weekend Pro-Line announced the release of their new shell for the Team Associated B44.2 and B5, the Phantom! Designed by Lee Martin it features a stealthy cab forward look and sweeping body lines that flow back to a single point. The optional center fin adds additional high speed stability and finishes off the design of this fresh looking 1:10 buggy body.
The Dirt Nitro Challenge is typically a popular event for companies to ‘debut’ products in competition that have been under wraps until now, in addition to Team Associateds’ very public RC8 prototypes in the hands of Cavalieri & Maifield it seems Pro-Line have been busy over the winter developing a new style of body, present this weekend on team driver Ty Tessmann’s HB D812 buggy.
The new style called ‘Type-R’, is all we know at this stage however its clear that the styling is different to the ‘Bulldog’ style of cab-forward bodies; the engine’s cooling head now not as exposed as it previously was, we understand the style is designed by Tessmann himself and transferred across from his D413 1/10 4WD buggy. The style appears to still have quite the aggressive front cab but with more of a traditional even retro rear ‘larger’ cab including aero-influencing ‘flick ups’ on the sidepods. Stay tuned for more info.

Sweep Racing have introduced their new Birdie body shell for the Mugen MBX7 which is due to be released soon. With plenty of space around the engine’s cooling head the body also features angled sidepods, a steep angled and narrow windshield with the cab also sitting in a very forward position.
JConcepts are delighted to announce the release of their new Silencer body for the Kyosho MP9 TK13. A brand-new, ground up design, the Silencer, has new elements created for the highest speed circuits. A profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit allows more fuel tank access, a smoother high-speed transition and increased flow around the engine heat-sink. A deep recess around the heat-sink area with dual channeling out the rear provides air escape along with rear-end stability.
Discarding the mundane clears new paths of inspiration, and enables things like Nanofox to happen. Stealth facets that define FTW style are fused with Grand Prix inspiration to cloak an all-business forward cab and impossibly low profile side pods with epic style. Like all FTW body shells, fitment is immaculate and most popular electronic suites are easily housed inside. The unique side pod profiles provide an ideally positioned air inlet opportunity. Nanofox fits Kyosho’s RB6 1:10 scale off-road buggy in both mid- and rear- motor configurations, and includes molded cut lines for each configuration. Nanofox is formed from clear .030” polycarbonate with protective outer film and includes two .040 Fulcrum wings, a decal sheet, and window masks.
