Manta V2 O.S.F.M. Body

Short Course racing is fun and more addictive than ever. With the addition of the 4×4 class and popular vehicle releases such as the SC10 4×4, Losi SCT-E and the ever popular Slash 4×4, the demand for a versatile high performance body is at an all-time high. One size fits all, or in some cases one size fits most, is more appropriate. JConcepts introduces a One Size Fits Most Manta V2 body. With no pre-determined marks, the V2 body includes mounting templates and a guide to make body mounting short work. With confirmed drop-on placement for the Slash, Slash 4×4, SC10, SC10 4×4, XXX-SCT, SCT-E, Ultima SC, HPI Blitz and Durango DESC410R the Manta V2 fits the biggest variety of the most popular SCT trucks in one fell-swoop. Boom!

The original Manta body set the standard for amazing performance while sending an outright buzz through the short course nation with its authentic styling. The V2 version is not just one of the most versatile bodies ever created, it’s also one of the most highly detailed, refined and high performance bodies ever released from JConcepts.

The menacing stance of the Manta has been preserved with the high coverage dual headlight and grill design. The front-end features include the above wheel well vents, center louvers and softened wheel wells to offer increased tune-ability and durability while maintaining the exclusive design. The stance of the cab is amongst the most aggressive in class, providing a sleek and scale performance. Recessed windows with the extra cab are unmistakable short course cues while the rear bed and deck area now sport the stylish number and name plate. A simplified rear bumper cut-line and softened detail adds style and durability to an already steady design.

Brian Kinwald, tire gluing aficionado and pro driver quotes. “I glue a lot of tires and this is the best I’ve used.”

Racer tips for a properly mounted tire –

1. Wash hands prior to assembling and gluing.
2. Clean bead area of tire with all purpose cleaner. Green Biodegradable cleaner and window cleaner are popular choices.
3. Avoid touching bead area for best bond strength.
4. Use only high quality (#2043M), purpose built tire glue.
5. Slide the glue tip applicator partially (force fit) onto bottle and cut tube to desired length.
6. Pull back tire bead area and apply a liberal amount of glue to mating surfaces.
7. Wipe excess glue with a rag and allow to dry in a warm ventilated area. Direct sunlight is best.
8. Place JConcepts tire mounting rubber bands (#2005) around the outside of the sidewall to assist in proper positioning.
9. Check your work and perform any touch-up necessary.
10. Go racing.
