JConcepts Ford F-250 Super Duty SCT Body

JConcepts Ford F250 SCT BodyJConcepts is excited to introduce the first Ford F-250 Super Duty body developed specifically for 1/10 scale short course trucks. The JConcepts F-250 front grill and headlight treatment have the feel of a that interstate “big rig” while remaining low-profile to slip under the breezy radar. The front hood scoop with cut-lines for 5 individual air-outlets make a functional yet visual impression. Low-profile cab height gives this body a distinct advantage on high speed circuits while the F-250 drop-down windows and black-out decals sharpen up the side window detail. Full fender flare extensions running over the wheel wells and throughout the side profile toughen the stance while the SCT style openings give the tire clearance necessary to run the vast majority of tires needed on the racing circuit. The top bed area has Hi-Flow inspired recessed regions for air escape removal while the rear bed has a freshly designed escape spoiler region. The spoiler region is deep rooted allowing a massive reveal for 2 detached outlets which lead to the innovative spoiler portion extending out the rear. Read more…
