The S15 body style is a staple in the line-up at JConcepts. The IFMAR World Championship winning design has served well over the years, even spawning many look-alikes around the industry. However, there is nothing quite like an original, and JConcepts knows how to achieve performance, not just copy it. When it comes to truggy racing, the dedicated crew from Groveland, Florida, has worked on and finalized an S15 for the popular 1/8th truck class to go along with the ROAR National Championship winning F2.

Debuted at the Dirt Nitro Challenge, the S15 took off in the hands of Spencer Rivkin (RC8T4e) in the E-truggy class, and Ryan Maifield (Tekno NT48 2.0) in the nitro truck class. The versatile body, in addition to the previously mentioned, fits on an assortment of 1/8thtrucks on the market including the MBX8T, 8ight-XT, D8T, and Sworkz vehicles. Some of the latest truck models incorporate features to accommodate the behind tower body mounts while others will need to rely on the JConcepts instructions on mounting technique or optional parts to complete the assembly.
The bed of the body shell is carried over from the successful F2 but features the deep draw with surrounding geometry to protect and engine head while simultaneously allowing plenty of cooling access. The cab is redesigned, going to single window S15 treatment, the opposing angular window layout blends into the mid sidepod winglet so famous with this design. The roof features the center fin stabilizing structure to strengthen the cab while also providing some stability in forward tracking ability.

The record turnout at the event brought out the fastest racers in the 1/8th truck class. Dakotah Phend got things started by top qualifying the class with the new S15 body on his TLR 8ight-XT vehicle.
