In the early 1990’s, several teams stepped up in the Monster Truck racing game to put Chevrolet back on top. With improved suspension systems and a longer wheelbase chassis aided by computer designs, the need for a specialty body was created. The “Snoop Nose” fiberglass body was used by the Chevy boys which featured an extended wheelbase, larger wheel well openings, and of course, a low-slung front clip which gives it that “snoop” appearance.
JConcepts revives a cult favorite with a completely redesigned body for solid axle monster truck racing. The 13″ wheelbase is perfect for the solid runners in today’s racing and with a proportioned width and “snoop nose,” the Chevy, is definitely a cut above the rest. The tucked front nose provides clearance for an assortment of tires such as the Renegades and Firestorms while the shaved front and rear bumper faces the competition like a fighting bull.
The main structure of the body remains a genuine Chevrolet style used from 1988-1998 and deep down represents the “Heartbeat of America” generation. The JConcepts body includes a clear body shell, paint mask for all windows and detailed Chevy and JConcepts logo decal sheet. As always, each body set is backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage.
Race and event history –
The JConcepts support crew made the trip to Lancaster, Ohio, at the 4-Link Nationals for a debut event. Team driver, Dan Wyatt rushed some early prototype “Snoop Nose” bodies to the paint booth in search of the perfect look for Show and Shine. When the crew arrived for event setup, the paint was still wet on the Excaliber and Bearfoot inspired and themed race bodies. Dan’s favorite trucks from the early 1990’s made the show and qualified near the top of the field in racing but it was in photos, video and the Show and Shine where they made their mark. Placed on the Juice Racing, Cube Chassis, the bodies sat in perfect stance and rocked the show during the entire weekend.
