Always the correct part
It’s the Worlds Baby! That was the mind-set to the JConcepts team as we noted and prepared for one of the largest events of the year in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was time to turn the page on some design aspects and stylize the TLR 8ight 4.0 with a completely new design. The S2 design, originally made popular for the 1/10th off-road crowd, had a lot of influence over this design. In a chat with chief drivers Ryan Maifield and Reno Savoya, the S2 was suddenly born and quickly prepared and debuted in front of a world-wide audience.
Starting a project like this is not an easy task, the drivers are demanding. Make it “cool looking,” “more radical” and it needs to perform just as well as it looks is typically the feedback delivered to the design team during these projects. Set the constraints by allowing the body to clear certain fixed items in the chassis and allow the features to try and take control of the performance. The S2 is perhaps the lowest and most muscular JConcepts body ever produced.
The S2 sports a forward cab, low-profile stance with channeled roof and rear stabilizing fin. The front of the pods have a deep pocketed, “force-bars” which have shown to channel some air in a much needed forward position while also, providing a more rigid feel to the body. The L.P. side-pods whisk over the electrical and step where necessary, but it’s the rear wicker section that improves rear-end grip and tightens up the handling.
The unique “engine compartment” adds some innovation to the design and the prefect resting place for the engine head. The channeling directs the air just along the engine and cooling head while still maintaining a very structured look. The clear body set includes window templates, decal sheet and backed by JConcepts customer support and racing team lineage.
