jc-0256The new Silencer body for the Team Associated RC8.2 from JConcepts has been created for the highest speed circuits. A narrowed Finnisher stance cockpit allows better fuel tank access with 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 tyres. 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 cock-pit “shark fin” for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.
The Silencer body in the hands of Ryan Maifield dominated the competition at the 2013 Dirt Nitro Challenge in Phoenix, Arizona. Ryan had this to say immediately following the event:

“The track is totally gnarly out here and my buggy worked amazing in the 45-minute A-main. The Silencer body and Finnisher wing package on the RC8.2 is just perfect for these super high-speed tracks and edgy conditions. This body has been really durable and it looks incredibly low and sets the vehicle off just perfectly.”
