Product Information

The Silencer body has a rich history in 1/8th off-road racing and impeccable track record for success. First developed for the 2012 IFMAR World Championships, the Silencer has been a mainstay in the JConcepts product line which is available for a number of difference vehicles in the market. The Team Associated RC8B3.1 has enjoyed a successful run world-wide and JConcepts has now created the iconic Silencer as a drop-fit for the vehicle.  

What started out as a simple task was anything but. For the precise fit, the design has undergone changes to match the RC8B.1 chassis side-guards and body mount positioning. The Silencer stance cockpit allows ample fuel tank access, a smoother high-speed windshield transition and increased flow around the engine heat-sink. A deep recess around the engine compartment with dual channeling out the rear provides air escape along with rear-end stability. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling just in front of the rear tires. The extended runner features are placed on the rear-end of the body enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.

The main pods are heavily chamfered and a more heat-shrink design over the pipe, fuel tank and electrical / linkage make up the main pods. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a cock-pit "shark fin" for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.
