Hi there, can jconcepts put in ventilation holes when designing bodies in 1/10th class. I'd like to help with my cooling in stock class but cannot cut any holes in my body to help. I've got the Finnisher body for the b5m (it's the only one that fits with my fan). If people don't want to cut out ventilation they don't have to. At the moment I don't have the options.

The IFMAR rules allow you to cut out holes, but the rules in Australia state only if there are intended ventilation holes in the body.

Scoops would be cool!

I think Hybrids are still current, but the Black Jackets are being phased out. I think that most racers are choosing Triple D's and Lil Chasers for buggy and relexes for truggy. Yes, we still have DD's for SCT, but the Lil Chasers seem to be taking over.

Sounds like you just need to play with fan placement a bit. Here is what I did on my stock car...I run the S2 body. If you have any questions just send me a pm.

I really like your setup, it's really neat. I'm happy with my setup too.

Still after some air intakes, can't hurt. If those don't want to run them they just leave them.

I wanted to inquire if the Rear Body Mount for the RC8T, to lower the body (JCI2054), is still available? I managed to bend the one I have and can't imagine it going back to shape without breaking.

Sorry, but that item was discontinued many years ago. The part number is 2054 if you want to try and find one floating around on the internet. I guess the other option is to upgrade to the alloy rear tower from the CE kit.

It's really tough to commit to making bodies for Xray vehicles anymore. Unfortunately they change their cars so often, that bodies become obsolete before we can even regain mold/tooling cost.

I completely understand.

I'm going to see if I can retro fit the Losi 3.0 body on..It looks close...

Any idea if you guys will EVER make 2.2 wheels specific to the RB6/PRS1's slightly smaller axles? LOL

Also, any plans to do anything for the Hobby-Pro cars? Doubt it but worth a shot I guess.

No plans at the moment for brand specific wheels other than what we already have.

Sorry, no plans for any accessories for the Hobby-Pro line.
