TLR 8IGHT-E 3.0 "Silencer" Body (Clear) by JConcepts
This is the JConcepts TLR 8IGHT-E 3.0 "Silencer" Body. One of the most recognizable items dropped during the busy racing season, the Silencer body style, has now been designed for perfect fit and finish on the TLR 8ight-E 3.0 buggy. A ground up design, the Silencer, has elements developed for the highest speed circuits. A narrowed, Finnisher stance cockpit allows for smoother high-speed transition and increased flow in and out of the body for electrical air-flow. A deep recess behind the cab features dual channeling out the rear providing 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 on the rear-end of the body enhance the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.
The main pods are heavily chamfered and a more heat-shrink design over motor and speed control area are highlighted features. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a cock-pit "shark fin" for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.

As far as the body, standard thickness for buggy body. I could tell no difference between this body and the stock 8ight-E 3.0 body on the track. One tip. Cut the nose off the front so it does not extend over the inside of the shock tower. Otherwise when the car flexes from a bad landing it will rip the front nose off. Same with the stock Losi body.
This body is cheaper than the Losi body.)
