It does, over the stock AE bodies. The biggest difference is the lexan is stronger and holds up to the rigors or racing much longer

It has so much more downforce you'll need to go down a full turn on each shock spring to keep it from bottoming out at high speed!

Ok, i'm just kidding.

It may provide more, in clean air, but the front shock tower, linkages, etc. all cause what is known in the aero world as dirty air. There is not much that can be done with dirty air, which is a lot of the reason the rear wing isn't even very effective until you go to a fairly oversize one. Notice how the shock tower protrudes into the wing bottom area.

Dirty air = tumbling, disturbed air which can not be consistently controlled.

Luckily they do look cool and last longer then the stock bodies, !

Here are some JConcepts bodies for various vehicles just painted up in fact...

Just wanted to say Thanks to the folks at J Concepts for taking care of me with my order. It was weird when the online cart gave me errors and didn't look like the orders went through at all when in fact, everything went through! I appreciate the speedy responses and help with the refund issues and then making sure I got all my goodies when I needed. Thanks again!

A lot of those pics look great P-Dub!
I'm gonna be out there in the morning, about 8:30-9 to add some pics to the mix, . Got some new gadgets to try out for the camera, .

We shouldn't miss too many irreplaceable moments with all the shutter snapping going on!
