JConcepts Releases 1st Aftermarket Body For Tekno EB48

May 23, 2013 No Comments by

Tekno’s unique 1/8 4WD electric buggy has grown in popularity since it was 1st released, and until today your only body option was the one that came with the kit. JConcepts now gives racers another option with their new Finnisher body for the EB48. Not only is this body a direct fit for the EB48, but it also includes some unique features that will help cool your electronics and provide more steering clearance. Read more about it in the press release below:

With the evolution of race tracks, complicated circuits combining more aggressive jumps and extremely high-speed corners, JConcepts has incorporated many new features for the Finnisher Tekno EB48, which provide several benefits in the most critical situations. Increased windshield angle provides a steady force upfront during in-flight wind gusts on large jumps. Forward cab placement changes performance / visible bias which helps steering rotation in low traction corners.

JConcepts hit the ground in Vaasa, Finland with an all new body design specifically for the IFMAR World Championships. Cleverly named, Finnisher, the unique design quickly rose to the top of the field during competition and proved effective on the ground and in the air. Designed with aspects learned from the Punisher line of bodies, the Finnisher provides an even more aggressive look with included details which remain crucial to performance. The Finnisher body for the Tekno is a drop fit for the newly released EB48 buggy.

The side-pods have been simplified and JC chamfered to remove unwanted changes in height to neutralize the at-speed handling. Additional clearance has been added for the steering linkage from servo to bell-cranks to give an extra bit of clearance to the body. The chassis to body fit has been tightened up which eliminates empty voids that contribute to mid-flight directional changes. The rear of the cab has a new step feature which places dual louvers toward the rear that can be trimmed to allow air to escape at the top of the body. The rear portion of the side-pod area has been lowered to create another louver which can be trimmed as another avenue to allow heat to escape. The motor-side of the pods have a direct inlet which can be trimmed and used as another air-flow feature of the body.

Features:

  • Race proven JConcepts Finnisher design
  • Blended wing / body design
  • Unique, stepped, forward cab design
  • Side-pod louvers for more air-flow potential
  • Additional steering clearance
  • Motor-side scoop for direct inlet
  • Clear polycarbonate with protective film
  • Window masks and decal sheet
