After some more work and fine tuning the BittyDesign boys Davide & Stefano have finally perfected their FORCE body for JQ Products’ White Edition buggy and showed it to us at the EURO Contest – as we wrote during the ASIA Contest the updated body has been remodelled from the Yellow edition to fit the new car’s new dimensions and spec whilst still providing the same performance and looks.
‘THE’ main areas receiving the treatment being the throttle servo linkage area, ensuring that there is room for the linkage to work without scratching the body as well as the re-worked sidepods, not to mention the mud guards are now also available with the body.
The Force style of cab forward bodies aid aero with gains in corner entry stability as well as rear sidepod ‘scoops’ to ensure a planted rear end.
Expect the body to be shipped to distributors and available worldwide within the next couple of weeks.

We’ve followed Mugen’s 2014 signing Carson Wernimont for a couple of years and to see him challenging at the sharp end at big events such as the nats is a delight, so it is with great pleasure that we present ‘Carson’s Body’ by RWD (Russ Wernimont Designs), a home made body designed by Carson and his father and made expertly by hand.
It wasn’t long ago, back at the Psycho Nitro Blast in April where Carson blitzed qualifying with an aero-influenced body, sporting many lexan additions to aid aero stability. He now has a body of his own which will be available to purchase in late July.
We’ll post again on NeoBuggy once the body is widely available as well as price etc, but in the meantime any enquiries or questions can be directed to CarsonWernimont@hotmail.com

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 RB6
A brand-new, ground up design, the Silencer, has new elements created for the highest speed circuits. 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. A slight recess just behind the cab with channeling out the rear provides rear-end stability. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling in just in front of the rear tires. The rear side-pods angle sharply toward the shock tower and wing, enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.
