JConcepts have just released the latest version of the Silencer (S1) body for JQ Racing 1/8th buggies. First developed for the 2012 IFMAR World Championships, the Silencer has been a mainstay in this brand’s product line which is available for a number of different off road cars in the market.
The Silencer stance cockpit allows ample room for the air cleaner and 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 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.
The main pods are heavily chamfered and a more heat-shrink design over the pipe, fuel tank and electrical / linkage make up the main pods. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal.

- JConcepts Silencer styling
