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!

While browsing the social media world, we stumbled across what appears to be a spy shot of something new in the works from Leadfinger Racing (LFR). Serpent/LFR team driver, Dylan Gerard, shared a photo of his Cobra E-Buggy during some afternoon testing. We aren’t exactly sure what all he is testing, but one thing IS for sure…the body on his car is not one we have seen before. Seeing that it is stickered up with LFR logos, combined with the recent success of the LFR ‘Assassin’ body line, we can only assume this is just one of many projects in the works at the LFR headquarters in Florida. Stay tuned for more details on the Serpent Cobra ‘Assassin’ as they become available…

JConcepts is here to support the emergence of stadium truck with a Finnisher body which drop fits on to the Team Associated T5M racing truck. The #0289 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 T5M 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 stand-out like an 18 wheeler.

Leadfinger carries over the new Assassin design to the popular TLR 3.0 nitro buggy! Keeping the look of the Assassin’s cab forward design form the previous electric buggy platform. Leadfinger re-works the new mold by lowering the profile and giving the nitro version a more aggressive look. As it’s electric brother before him, the cab forward design helps bring more down force to the front of the car, providing more steering into and exiting corners.The rear swoop has been designed in mind to give slightly less down force to the rear and direct flow toward the center of the wing, helping straight line stability and more level jumping. The LFR Assassin body is made of thicker Lexan for greater durability. The clear masking is easy to remove and makes drawing your personal paint scheme a breeze. All of the Assassin’s mold design’s are hand crafted, personally inspected for quality and made in the U.S.A. by Leadfinger.
