JConcepts: 1987 Buick Grand National Street Eliminator Body

Covid19 or not, JConcepts never stop to amaze us with new lexan bodies for our RC models. This time is a replica of the 1987 Buick Grand National (a sinister, wedged shaped vehicle) that is direct fit for Team Associated DR10. The vehicles which are wide-bodied, flat paneled and have a low-roof line always track well down the racetrack. A low front chin, bumper construction and pocketed headlights immediately look like punishment is headed your way.

JConcepts: 1970 Chevy K10 Monster Truck Body

JConcepts designers never stop to amaze us. They worked years to find the ultimate line of iconic trucks to compliment a range of vehicles utilizing a 10.5 to 11.00” wheelbase such as the Tamiya Clod Buster and Traxxas Stampede. The 1970 Chevy K10 Monster Truck Body is powerful, and the square body shape is a shout-out to the 70s.

For the 1970, a lot of the glamour rests in the front grille and headlight package as well as the layered and sculpted rear tail gate and taillight section (these details are included in the decal sheet along with many emblems and trim packages to customize you body as you like).

JConcepts: 1955 Chevy Bel Air Drag Eliminator Body

JConcepts has reproduced one of the classiest looking vehicles to the Drag Eliminator scene: the 1955 Chevy Bel Air Drag Eliminator. Taking on this project was not an effortless task, doing a great deal of R&D, the team went for the more race inspired style and decided to split up the design into 3 different parts. First, the main Bel Air shell has been carefully crafted via CAD and hand shaped and finish to realize the many details found on the 1955.

JConcepts have introduced their authentic Team Associated RC10B3 body shell.

JConcepts have introduced a body shell replica of the legendary racing buggy Team Associated RC10B3. Team Associated released the RC10B3 during the 1997 IFMAR World Championships. Quietly, during the span of 1995 through 1997, Area 51 worked on the follow-up design to the successful RC10 platforms with a major release scheduled during the high-profile event. One of the improvements or updates made to the design was the body.

JConcepts (with official the approval from Team Associated) have reproduced the genuine RC10B3 body shell. This allows to recreate, rebuild and race with authentically styled bodies from the heyday of competitive rear bias cab, back closure buggy bodies. A lot of work went into making this project a reality and thankfully, Team Associated preserved the iconic mold from the 1997 race year so JConcepts was able to restore older generation construction and with a blend of today’s materials.
