Arrow ANYONE SEEN A J-COCEPTS J82????

I just read xrc and seen the reveiw on the j-cocepts j82 and just fell in love with it. I race nitro only and have no electric stuff what so ever, but with all this brushless and li-po technology it's really capturing my attention. So when i seen the j82 coversion of the popular AE t4 platform it made me think what it's like and should this maybe be my first ep off road vehicle? So if anyone has got one, seen one drive or are just a fan of t4 then let me know. Much appreciated

Here is a short vid, and after you drive one, you'll be sold.

The t4 platform is a great place to start, and the J82 benefits greatly from it.

Generacally its an oversized b4. The J82 handles better than the b4, on rough tracks because of its larger wheel base. They are fun to drive and its well worth the $80 for the conversion.

The j82 wheels and tires are awesome for making 2wd sprint conversions for dirt oval too!

Thanks for the props Brian I won with the J82. The Truck, er Buggy, uh, it was dialed, sooo easy to drive. It seemed like everyone else was have problems with their trucks. I don't know if that was because it was so long since we have ran trucks, or what. That was actually the first time I ran my J82/T4. I bought the T4 from Spencer for $60, never ran it, then the J82 came out. Me and Bobby got them, he built his, I didn't. Then they announced that there was gonna be a free J82 class at the Nats, so I threw mine together, didn't change the setup or anything, and bam I won mod truck with it. Very dialed, because the front wheels are soooo much lighter than regular truck wheels, if the traction is there, wheelies are no problem. I could pull wheelies off flat ground. I even pulled one coming down the downhill before the finish line.
