JConcepts New Release – 1993 Ford F-250 Traxxas Stampede Body
For the ninth generation, the body-shell of the 1993 F-Series was given another major upgrade and now a direct fit for the Traxxas Stampede. To further improve its aerodynamics, the forward bodywork was given a slightly lower hood line and a rounding of the front fenders and grille. The “Blue Oval,” a trademark of all Ford pickups, makes a striking appearance centered in the grille. Stout fender flares are carved ever so carefully into the panels while openings allow for a vast assortment of tires on the market. The F-250 single-cab look is strong and is a careful reminder of a time when passengers sat side-by-side during a typical outing.

JConcepts New Release – Short Course Truck Octagons and Stadium Truck!!
Battles can be won or lost in the “famed Octagon” and JConcepts pulled a ringer into the fight with an innovative 3.0 x 2.2” Short Course Truck tire. When it comes to high-bite, slick tire racing, look no further than the Octagons. At the appropriate time, and less tread is an advantage, vehicles can be tough to drive. The beauty of the Octagons lay just beneath the surface where JConcepts has removed a little surface area in the geometry based pattern.
One of the most recognizable items dropped during the Worlds, the Silencer body style has now been designed for perfect fit and finish on the World Championship buggy, the Mugen MBX-7 and MBX-8.
A brand-new, ground up, design, the Silencer has new elements created for the highest speed circuits. A narrowed, Finisher 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. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling just in front of the rear tires. The extended runner features are placed on the rear-end of the body enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.
What started out as a simple task was anything but. For the precise fit, the design has undergone changes to match the RC8B.1 chassis side-guards and body mount positioning. The Silencer stance cockpit allows ample fuel tank access, a smoother high-speed windshield transition and increased flow around the engine heat-sink. A deep recess around the engine compartment with dual channeling out the rear provides air escape along with rear-end stability.
The Silencer body has become a staple for David Ronnefalk as he used it to help him win his 2016 title in Las Vegas, NV, and now has become a part of the HB Racing kit.
JConcepts New Release – Carpet | Astro High-Clearance Rear Wing
A new High-Clearance Wing has been developed and manufactured by JConcepts Inc. The HCW incorporates a short-chord design for quick rotation and a flat-base which provides more tire clearance. As the carpet and Astroturf conditions become more prevalent, racers have asked for a specific rear wing. The durable design has chopped rear corners for rigidity plus a traditional rear trim-line for a great balance of down-force and low-drag.
JConcepts New Release – 1979 Ford F-250 SCT Body
Travel back with JConcepts to a time when a truck was just a truck. Purpose built, no frills or luxury, just built Ford tough. Officially licensed by Ford, JConcepts introduces the 1979 Ford F-250 Ranger SCT body. Built as they were in the good ole days, JConcepts has brought an essence of the 1979 truck together with the latest offerings in competitive Short Course Racing. With detailed 70’s styling, the grill, fender and authentic 70’s cab styling screams retro. JConcepts left no detail untouched bringing this theme to the SCT crowd and most notably the rear roll bars and front to back horizontal body lines that give the “79” unmatched SCT realism.

The Twin Pins are a new ground-breaking design which has not only, turned some heads, but have the competition, scratching their heads. The Twin Pins feature a dual spike which is connected together to form a mini-mountain like silhouette. The Twins are rotated throughout the design to form a solid, pin rich environment so surface area is maximized. The tire carcass itself has been refined, slammed to low-profile, high-speed standards and slimmed out to reduce weight in all possible areas.
JConcepts hits the track with another weapon for the carpet and astroturf racing world. The Nessi tire shares styling cues from its successful brother, the Lockness. Racing on artificial surfaces requires a lot of stability and forward-bite and the design team went to work to substantially improve performance. The new tire brings a new 3D blended pin-size, pin-separation and a light-weight and incredibly low-profile carcass.
JConcepts New Release – 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty
This beast is something special, the 2005 F-250 Super Duty is tough and with the Ford oval proudly displayed front and center, this truck is a force to be reckoned with.

For its introduction to the hard-core monster truck community, JConcepts wanted to get it right.

One of the key features is an arrow based design where the front is much narrower than the rear.
JConcepts New Release – 10th Scale Buggy “Drawstring” Tote Bag

A true drivers body, the new shell has fundamental differences necessary for performance. When the team hit the track during the 2018 ROAR Nationals, it was apparent there would be a new era starting in touring car racing. As a racing veteran for almost 30 years, Paul Wynn went to work sculpting a new A1R. After input from National Champion, Ryan Cavalieri, the new speedster started to take shape.
JConcepts New Release – Small Zipper Storage “Money” Bag
Once upon a time, local banking establishments provided a pouch that could be used for just about anything by a customer, most of the time is was cash money. Today, it’s important to have storage on the RC race scene but not necessarily for cash. To tidy up traveling equipment, JConcepts introduces the small zipper storage bag to pack away bulk essential items in a pit bag.

The bag is topped off with printed JConcepts Racing Team logo for authenticity and brand loyalty. Jason Ruona states, “I like using the small zipper bag for my rotary tools, body mounting equipment, and anything that typically doesn’t have a traveling home.”
JConcepts New Release – 1982 GMC K2500 Body
Square body nation rejoice, the team at JConcepts has brought back the late 70’s and early 80’s generation GMC truck line-up to the RC enthusiast with the GMC K2500 truck body.

JConcepts New Release – 1967 Chevy Chevelle
One of the crown jewels of the muscle car generation is the 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle. It was a potent street weapon and a notable day-to-day automobile, but its strength is one of the most classic models to ever roll-off the General Motors assembly line. As the brochure claimed in the late ’60s, “What you’ll see, will probably bring on a severe compulsion to go driving.”
As the street eliminator class heats up on the circuit, JConcepts has faithfully recreated the icon in full detail. Like all vehicles of this generation, the imagination was amazing in the design department, swooping lines, hard edges and statement-making trim packages. The corners of the front-end are pointed and wedge down to point the driver in the correct direction. The hood-scoop is planted along the center-line of the vehicle bringing that drag-strip inspiration.
JConcepts – Finnisher – HB Racing D817T Body
Body development is never quite finished, but in the case of the new 1/8th truck body by JConcepts, the Finnisher is a polished product. The winner of the 2016 ROAR National Championship, the Finnisher body in the hands of Ryan Maifield is a proven racing commodity.

Simply put, the Arrma Kraton is a beast of a truggy, its top-speed rivals the fastest vehicles in RC and JConcepts now has a Finnisher body ready to compliment this agile vehicle.
JConcepts New Release – S15 Body For HB Racing D819 and S15 Mugen MBX8 Body
The S15 blends performance features on the popular Silencer body with new features such as mid-body winglets and rear stabilizer kick-up. The roof of the body remains strong with the upper fin in position for stability and tracking ability. The engine area remains clean and a deep-rooted position allows the engine head maximum side exposure to air and escape. The front and rear body mount area is cleanly designed and allows for a drop-fit on the Mugen MBX-8 and older MBX-7 kit variants.

JConcepts arrived with a fresh lid for the HB Racing D8 vehicle used in competition by ace driver David Ronnefalk. The S15 packs a lot of performance into a stylish package consistent with vehicle upgrades and performance aero enhancements recently made on the racing circuit.

After popping the diff balls down into place inside the gear, apply another layer of clear lube over the top to cover and smooth the area. Remember, use a liberal amount but enough to fill the voids and assemble the rest of the diff.
JConcepts New Release – New Monster Truck Tires; Golden Years and JConcepts Tires
JConcepts has reached into the arsenal and embraced the future of monster truck racing with the release of the JConcepts Tire. On-track testing, compound development and new design techniques have led to a newly inspired all-out racing tire for the RC monster truck community. In racing, the ultimate compromise is weight and the new JConcepts Tire is light-weight with its continuous carcass, pre-cut tread height and low-profile footing.
The Golden Years by JConcepts are another reminder of the commitment the team has to the beginnings of an industry. An RC builder or modeler always has a new idea or ideal truck from the past they would like to emulate, and now, with the Golden Years, finishing off the early-era replica can be complete. For JConcepts, the slate was once again swiped clean when designing the new tire. With learned behavior from other tires in the line-up, it was clear a few things would be added for new performance and scale appearance.
JConcepts New Release – P2K – B6.1 Body
JConcepts has a rich history in the 2wd buggy class and a passion for the racing performance at the highest level. Throughout the years, the body development has evolved to include an array of features to produce results on a wide range of surfaces. The P2K is the latest body to come from the team produced for the latest generation of 2wd buggies. An evolution of the P2 body, the “K” is more sleek by removing rear down-force features to allow the buggy to turn on the tightest circuits and carpet and AstroTurf surfaces where traction is always plentiful.
JConcepts New Release – Foam Adhesive Body Washers
Prolonging the life of any RC body shell is important. The new JConcepts foam washers start protecting where initial damage starts to occur which is right around the body mount holes or attachment area. The die-cut foam donut is adhesive backed to attach itself to the body and the foam cushions the landings from there. The soft but high-impact material allows some flexibility between the body and the setting distance to the mount protecting the paint from the inside out.
Protect with JConcepts, World Proven Innovation and Design.
JConcepts New Release – JConcepts Updated Body Options for TLR 22 5.0 Buggy
After the release of the highly anticipated TLR 22 5.0 2wd buggy, there was a lot of requests for JConcepts to re-release the S2 and F2 bodies but made specifically for the brand new 5.0 platform. Although there was a slight difference between the 4.0 and 5.0 chassis shapes, we wanted to outfit the new car so the bodies would fit perfectly showcasing the fit and finish JConcepts is well known for.
With the evolution of race tracks, complicated circuits combining more aggressive jumps and extremely high-speed corners, JConcepts incorporated many features which provide several benefits in the most critical situations. Increased windshield angle provides a steady force upfront during mid-flight wind gusts on large jumps. Forward cab placement changes performance / visible bias which help steering rotation in low traction corners.
