S2 Lightweight body for laydown transmission with 2 x 6.5 inch Finnisher wings (Associated B5M)
Due to popular demand JConcepts unveils light-weight bodies specifically for the Team Associated B5M buggy kit. The hottest new bodies on the market are now available lighter than ever making them ideal for 17.5 stock racing. All bodies still include standard weight wings to maintain durability in a key area. The light-weight versions, unpainted without decals tip the scales at ~12-15gm lighter than their standard counterparts in the same condition. For identification purposes, the LW bodies feature a green protective film.
Caution: Due to the thin gauge material, be aware during painting and handling of the body how much pressure is applied. Specifically, while cutting liquid mask or masking tape be careful not to scar deeply into the body.
Backing up a successful design is perhaps the most difficult task in design and engineering. Faced with the challenge, the crew at JConcepts once again went to work to outfit the team during the 2015 IFMAR World Championships with a body capable of enhancing performance. Dubbed the S2, the new shell rocks some familiar features but rolled together with a low-profile stance.
Slammed overall height allows the S2 to whisk through the turns with a low center of mass while the progressive cab design provides plenty of front-end force for superior balance and steering. A channeled roof directs the flow through the center of the body while also increasing the rigidity of cockpit. The dual side-window design that has become famous on the JConcepts bodies remains to bring a traditional feel to the layout.
The upper side-pods feature distinct vents used to help relieve hot air build-up inside the body for those high-powered runs or hot days at the track. Carved and detailed side-pods edge the body giving the highly aero unit a stylish look with a tight fit and finish. The rear of the body has built-in gear cover ducts on both sides of the body. These features accommodate 3 or 4 gear lay-down style transmissions, giving all out versatility.
Performance validation was delivered by Spencer Rivkin during the IFMAR World Championships in Tsukuba, Japan. The Arizona native won A-mains 2 and 3 to secure his 1st World title driving with the new S2 body. Rivkin remarked about the S2 body – “I felt so comfortable on the Yatabe Arena track with the S2 body. It looks so mean on the track and has exactly the feel I was looking for. The S2 was an advantage for us.”
