Press Release from JConcepts:
The F2 body by JConcepts has been a trend setting design since its release on the buggy population. Now, Traxxas Rustler drivers can drop-on a race favorite design to their bash vehicle of choice. As they say, the slate was once again swiped clean and the F2 was a ground up form started in the computer and ultimately finished by hand. One of the key features is an arrow based design where the front is much narrower than the rear.
The narrower front-end appears on-point and with an all-new grille and headlight layout with 4 included grille options. The imprint of the nose draws in the truck enthusiast without giving up on the futuristic twist and Finnisher heritage. Protecting the front shock tower area is done with a traditional shape but contains new louver positioning and available air-release features located just in front of the main cab.
The cab is important, not only for performance but to set off the F2 design with angular roof and parallel window design. The popular side-window treatment has been once again incorporated into the design for maximum coverage. The new body includes the traditional Finnisher “V step-downs” in the bed area which makes it identifiable to the savvy racer.
The tail of the body has been lowered with an upper and lower transition making the rear a more durable piece even with light-weight materials. The F2 includes two spoilers, one for high-bite conditions and another taller version for low or medium bite conditions. The spoilers are durable and with proper trimming and included hardware bolt directly to the back of the new shell.
Wheel wells can make or break a truck body and the F2 delivers on smaller openings which have shown to close-up the body and minimize air-draft inside while turning and jumping. A slight flare to each gives some structure and rigidness to the panels and fine details the design. Between the wheel wells an F2 specific, double drop treatment has been chiseled and tucked into the hourglass shape of the rear-end. The double drop blends into a rocker panel body line which provides some stability to the layout and provides that all-important chassis clearance.
Each package includes window mask, new F2 specific decal sheet, two rear spoiler options and mounting hardware. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, supported and used trackside by our world-wide racing team and developed by professionals with style and authenticity.
