Exotek RX2 LCG 190mm touring car bodyshell

Exotek RX2 LCG 190mm touring car bodyshell

Coming from Exotek is the RX2 LCG 190mm touring car bodyshell. Developed in cooperation with Golem, the body offers a design that promises aggressive and precise handling while also increasing corner speed due to an overall lower centre of gravity which was achieved by reducing the roof section thickness from 0.45mm down to 0.2mm. This makes for an overall lower weight without sacrificing the all important bumper and side skirt stiffness. As compensation for the more forward body position the body features larger and lower wing mounts to allow for a taller wing to be used while still complying with rule books. On top of this the wing mounts were reinforced for less flex and vibration and the default wing positions is 3mm further back for more effective downforce. The rear quarter panels have been narrowed as well for improved stability and to create less drag. The body is designed to meet IFMAR GBS rules and it comes unpainted, including rear anti-body tuck supports, wing, standard wing mounting hardware, stickers and window masks.
