From the mind of Dennis Anderson, the wild and wooly King Sling was born. The ultimate Mega Truck, born in Poplar Branch, North Carolina, has a wild side, combining the brute power and durability of a monster truck with the madness of a mud racer. King Sling 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.
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, not to mention the iconic wing shape and rear scoop treatment. 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 King Sling is the first JConcepts body to include 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.
The three piece body design offers the highest quality in detail giving the builder several options, replicating the original King Sling or even creating a unique RC Mega Truck identity.
Included in the package, clear King Sling body, painting window mask, rear wing, scoop, mounting hardware and decal set. As always, each body set is backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage. Tackle the RC world fit for a King, #gojconcepts #jconceptssling
Creation history –
The JConcepts team met on location to photograph, measure and sketch up the 1:1 King Sling. Experienced industry insiders sat to discuss the project and lay plans to fit and finish the popular body to several popular chassis sets on the market. Computer drawings were completed during the summer of 2017 and from there, professionals at JConcepts took the necessary hand finishing time to pin-point focus sections of the creation. Wing, scoop and final fitment were complete during the late summer and decals designs finished and put into production.
Test samples were produced and the first working prototype hit the dirt during the late stages of 2017. Professional painting, photography and press release were created to go along with the product. King Sling the video is in the pipeline, stay tuned to JConcepts Inc on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram for the final cut.
Dress for success –
The vehicle is shown using the JConcepts (#3155) Fling King tires and (#3179) Dragon wheels. The 2.6” wheel diameter and matching tire is the perfect compliment for any mud run, dirt track or grass field conditions.
