JC puts ‘Finnishing’ touches on the 22

JConcepts TLR 22 Finnisher

The JConcepts design team has spent many hours in development with Ryan Maifield to develop a hot, new style body, specifically for the TLR 22 2.0 vehicle. The Finnisher for the 22 is a completely tightened design, slimming the overall look of the popular vehicle. JConcepts knows 1/10 offroad, and coming off the recent success of the Finnisher bodies, the designers adapted elements from the current fleet to create the ultimate high-grip, mid-motor body design.

Bittydesign Black Hawk SC body


We were first introduced to Bittydesign’s Black Hawk short course body at their Euro Contest event back in June, and after a bit of fine fine tuning and tinkering, its now available for general release for all SC enthusiasts. The main concept or USP (unique selling point) behind the Black Hawk is the large rear vertical fin located behind the cab, the fin can be bolted on or removed depending on driver preference and track.

The use of the fin improves stability in the high speed corners and stability while jumping.

The body come with a complete kit that include screws/nuts/plastic washers to fix at best the fin and the side numbers plates. The Black Hawk is produced with genuine Lexan, protective film, a big decal sheet and window masks complete the product.
