JConcepts F2 1/8 Scale Truck Body | CompetitionX

Recently, Truggy bodies have evolved from the full over-the-front-shock-tower design to a more low-profile, buggy-ish look. To take advantage of this new design, JConcepts has developed the F2, a low and sleek body that will fit the 1/8 scale Mugen, Team Associated, TLR, HB and Tekno Truggies. The package comes with the multi-piece body set covered in JC’s overspray film and all kinds of channeling to maximize airflow to the engine’s cooling head and rear wing. This body does require and optional body mount adaptor for the body and nose cone (sold separately depending on your ride).

What We Like:
Tekno was the first company to stretch the rules of the Truggy body and had everyone all in a tizzy about it but, instead of causing a gripe and protesting, companies like JConcepts just developed a body of their own. While we’re not tickled with the look, we do think it’s a progression in the the less-famous Truggy world that will help the handling of these trucks (Ryan Maifield did win the 2021 ROAR Fuel Nationals with this body).

What We’re Not Sure About:
Other than the nose area, this body isn’t all that different from a standard Truggy body. It does lose a bit of appeal of an actual truck which, in our opinion, helps separate the two classes, but we do get that advancement of the class to make it more appealing to drive, especially if it helps with the handling of the truck. We also don’t like that you have to buy optional pieces to make it work, but we get it since the current batch of Truggies aren’t set up to accept these new body styles.
