New Concept Design is owned and operated by Ed Shampine and based in the Syracuse, N.Y., area. We have been building fiberglass parts for racing applications since the early 1990s.
Ed is a longtime enduro kart racer. He began designing his own nosecones and sidepanels while racing in the competitive 2-cycle sprint classes at WKA and Woodbridge Kart Club events in the early ’90s. Since then, Shampine has designed dozens of laydown-enduro and sprint-enduro bodywork designs that have won national and regional races and championships across the country.
With the implementation of shifter-kart and TaG racing into the national and club road race series about a decade ago, fiberglass road race bodywork sales are not what they once were. However, New Concept continues to provide bodywork sales to the niche industry that is enduro-style karting. We continue to produce and ship bodywork around the country on a weekly basis.
New Concept Design also offers nosecone and radiator shroud fiberglass bodywork for supermodified racecars. We have noses for new and older-style Hawk and Xtreme chassis, as well as other styles that may fit your super. In 2013 over 80 percent of the Oswego Speedway supermodified class fielded a New Concept Design nosecone.
If you have a car that is not a Hawk or Xtreme, call Ed Shampine. We may have a part that fits your application.
