with highest respect...

Isnt the "rain drop" type effect on bodyshells becoming a bit long in the tooth?

Would be nice to see new ideas on the bodyshell artwork as we approach 2010.

The highflow creates more down force via angled side dams.

So you are saying that the side pods are higher? From the pictures on JConcepts home page you see no differances between the two.
Has anyone realt tested between the two, and is their a real felt differance?
In my short time in the sport (Offroad Dirt) bodies realy dont do much.

The rear wings are another story, I have felt the differance betwee the
6.5'' Vwing and the 7" straight HD. the 7 defintely gives more rear traction, but the 6.5V seams to jump better, the car stays flater in the air.
I'm in the process of experminting with the 7" Vwing, hopping to get the best of bowth worlds.

Scoopless: The side dams are fairly straight except for the rear.

http://www.jconcepts.net/store/index...e1029ce8a2a170

High Flow: The side dams have more of a slight c shape that creates more downforce.

Thanks for all the help. I see where you are saying that the back of the pod sweeps up alot more.
I'm going to order one and a few other items tomorrow. I will post back when In get them painted and test between the two.
All I can say for sure is that they look killer compaired to he stock.
