Revolution Design Racing Products announce the soon release of the aluminium wing mount set for mid motor converted Kyosho RB6 buggies. Machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised the wing mount is not only a lot more durable than the kit parts but also makes for a more solid base especially for larger or heavier wings, meaning improved aerodynamic efficiency. It is a direct fit on the stock plastic shock tower and also perfectly matches with RDRP’s soon-to-be-released carbon fibre rear shock tower set. As usual the parts sport a stealthy black colour and laser-etched logos for a cool factory look.
