Pro-Line Trifecta wing & off-road car stands

Pro-Line Trifecta wing & off-road car stands

Pro-Line have more off-road related accessories to offer in the form of the Trifecta 1/8th rear wing and car stands for buggies and trucks. Starting with the wing, the part was first seen at this year’s ROAR Fuel Offroad Nationals and it is designed to greatly improve rear traction and high-speed stability. Sculptured in an aggressive, futuristic design with large centre fins the wing can be equipped with your choice of a small or large wickerbill to fine-tune the performance. Underneath the main plate of the wing there are three dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” which increases low speed down force and reduces high speed drag. Suitable for 1/8th buggies and trucks the wing is available in yellow, black or white colour.
