JConcepts has expanded its Silencer body styling to the Hot Bodies D812 nitro buggy. The most noticeable feature of this body is the the “shark fin” that sits on top of the forward facing cab. This fin was added to create more stability, plus channel the air in two different directions. So only does it look cool but it is functional as well.

JConcepts, out to Silence the competition in Buenos Aires, Argentina, debuts new Silencer body design at IFMAR World Championships.
Leading up to the 2012 IFMAR World Championships, the JConcepts design team was extremely busy developing new product for the world level bi-annual event. The team spent many hours in development with leading team drivers to develop a new high-speed body style specifically for the latest circuits and specifically the one in Buenos Aires. One of the most recognizable items dropped during the Worlds, the Silencer body style, has now been designed for perfect fit and finish on the Hot Bodies D812 buggy.
A brand-new, ground up design, the Silencer, has new elements created for the highest speed circuits. A narrowed, Finnisher stance cockpit allows more fuel tank access, a smoother high-speed transition and increased flow around the engine heat-sink. A deep recess around the heat-sink area with dual channeling out the rear provides 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 are placed on the rear-end of the body enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.
The main pods are heavily chamfered and a more heat-shrink design over the pipe, fuel tank and electrical / linkage make up the main pods. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a ****-pit “shark fin” for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.
