Side-by-side vehicles are designed to entertain the trail and desert enthusiast with impressive agility, off-road performance and all-around bashing fun. The T2 body by JConcepts is a link for RC drivers to accomplish all types of off-road journeys. The new shell draws an inspiration from Glamis, California, where peace of mind, relaxation and all-out performance pack the dunes each weekend.
In this episode of the JConcepts VLog. Jason and Fred discuss a few recent trips and a few new products along with a couple of events we’ll be attending this Fall.
First up is a recap of the Bigfoot Open House. Fred, Rich, Jason and Allison made the trip to Pacific MO in early June for the Bigfoot Open House. JConcepts debuted a soon to be released 2010 Ford Raptor Monster Truck body that many of you have been asking about.
A couple new bodies released recently include the highly anticipated 2008 Ford F-150 MT body and the new UTV body for the Traxxas Slash called T2 or Truth 2.
Our next road trip had Fred and Rich driving west to Texas for the RCDRL US Super Nationals. We were on hand at the Texas Motor Speedway debuting our soon to be released 1991 Ford Mustang Fox body along with the Startec wheels and Hotties Street Eliminator tires. It was a great but hot weekend in Fort Worth with JD Crow taking the top qualifier spot running the new tires and wheels and finishing second overall in the Street Eliminator class.
Next up for us on the road will be a trip back up to NY for the RCMTC World Finals on September 2nd and then back over to St. Louis for the JConcepts King Of The Monster Trucks event hosted by Trigger Kings. We’ll see you on the road!
Great times at the Bigfoot Open House. Thanks to Trigger King R/C, Doug Welker, Ross Hinshaw, Bob C and Bigfoot 4×4 for the hospitality and a really fun event. It was a great day filled with amazing Monster Trucks, old and new, along with great food, car crushes and RC Racing action.
The Team at Bigfoot put on a great event and is a must attend for every Monster Truck fan.
JConcepts was on hand showing off a couple new bodies and racing. Jason Ruona would take the Pro Mod win along with Tad Goad winning Sport Mod.
Bog Hog, has a wild side, combining the brute power and durability of a monster truck with the madness of a mud racer. Bog Hog is a beast, and JConcepts has worked together with designers and builders to replicate this body shell to fit on a host of popular chassis including the Axial SMT10.
Slouched at the starting line, engine headers glowing and flowing, the flag goes down and Bog Hog roars. The atmosphere surrounding Mega Trucks excite even the most mild mannered racers. From the shop in Poplar Branch, North Carolina, Dennis Anderson has created another classic Mega Truck. Following in the footsteps of King Sling, Bog Hog is another animal forged in iron.
Weston “Teenyman” Anderson, the teenager behind the wheel of the “Anderson Boyz” latest creations has a knack for spectacular driving. Whether the techniques are learned from the master himself or naturally run through his veins, Weston has catapulted Bog Hog into the spot-light. As if the bright orange body, rice and cane tires, tube chassis and nitrogen charged shock suspension wasn’t enough, the striking graphics of the gnarly swamp beast in flames is sure to gather your attention.
Working with Dennis Anderson, Fred Reep and the JConcepts crew went back to the drawing board to once again carve out a legend. The slate was once again wiped clean and the form started to take shape in the computer to fit and finish on a selection of vehicles. A lot of hand dressing took place to ensure the details were correct on the shell itself. Fred “Freestyle” Reep sat shotgun on this project reviewing the style, shape and decal creation to ultimately please the man, the myth, the legend, Dennis Anderson.
No superstar race machine would be complete without decoration. The Bog Hog is unique and includes two decal sheets in the package that covers logos, signatures, flames and branding recognition. The product is formed in durable polycarbonate and includes painting window mask for ease of use. Fine detailing and trimming to the body shell comes from the purchasing enthusiast where the imagination and skill set takes over.
Included in the package, clear Bog Hog body, painting window mask, front hood-scoop and decal set. As always, each body set is backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage. Tackle the RC world fit for a beast, #gojconcepts #jconceptssling #jconceptsbog
Jason and Fred discuss our recent trip to Beaver PA for the JConcepts Monster Cross. Matt Stoltz and Morris Aschkenas brought back full-on wheel to wheel racing allowing more track time for the racer. With a special course designed just for this event it made for some great racing all weekend long.
In this episode of the JConcepts VLog, Jason talks with Paul Wynn and AJ Marasco about their trip to the Electric On Road Paved Nationals hosted by the Ft. Myers R/C Car Club and his recent trip to OCRC Raceway for the JConcepts Stock Nationals...
