JConcepts’s popular 2WD buggy lower front wing series is now available for all popular 1/10th 2WD buggies on the market. The range includes sets for the Team Associated B5/B5M, B6/B6D, TLR 22 3.0, Yokomo YZ2, as well as the Xray XB2 and Kyosho RB6.6. All include tailor-designed front wing mounts made from injection-moulded and durable material as well as a V-angle front wing. The wing mount itself attaches with supplied hardware to the top deck on TLR, Yokomo, Xray and Kyosho vehicles while the Team Associated versions mount directly to the front shock tower. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while dimples are located on the wing itself to indicate where to mount to the front wing mount.
Coming from UK company Phat Bodies and made for the EMB-1 mini buggy is the new Hammer bodyshell. The body allows the longer 225mm wheelbase truck or Desert buggy chassis to be used as a buggy for increased stability and overall performance. The body is made from tough 0.75mm polycarbonate, it comes clear, with overspray film and stickers.
Protoform have introduced the 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 bodyshell for the VTA and other vintage touring car classes. One of the iconic cars of its generation, the Z28 tore up both the streets and Trans-Am series tracks with pure American V8 power. In true Super Chevy style, Protoform replicated the distinctive “split-bumper” configuration along with all the other signature Z28 design details for an exceptionally scale look. For the first time in PF’s VTA body lineup, the Z28 is formed from a single piece of genuine Lexan and requires no assembly. An all-new moulding process developed by the engineers at Protoform has allowed to capture realistic front and rear undercuts on the Z28 without the need for an add-on nose piece. The officially-licensed product meets all VTA Class rules and includes a detailed decal sheet, protective overspray film and window masks.
Coming from Mon-Tech Racing are pre-cut and pre-drilled Nazda2 and IS200 190mm touring car bodyshells. They are available as both carpet and asphalt variant and they are available for a range of chassis such as the ones from Xray, Yokomo, Schumacher and Awesomatix and they greatly reduce the preparation time while also allowing for a pro finish. They are also painter-friendly as they are not fully cut out, retaining the inner wheel arch and and door sill portions that are easy to remove after painting by cutting a couple of connections.
Coming from JConcepts and made for the Tekno RC NB48.3 buggy is the new Silencer S1 bodyshell. Offering a distinctive cab forward design with a medium rake angle for an aggressive driving feel without sacrificing out-right balance the body also sports forward pods that have the necessary height for chassis related items with an added scoop, built for cooling access from a forward position. The rear deck is built up and includes a rear winglet which drops some force on the rear of the vehicle. The mid-length cab incorporates a one-piece side window layout and includes a long shark fin off the rear of the cab for side-traction and straight-line tracking ability. At the rear of the cab rest several areas which can be trimmed for air-flow and hot air escape which is common inside a nitro vehicle. The S1 is formed in clear polycarbonate material with protective film and each package includes window mask and detailed decal sheet.
Mon-Tech have announced the release of their all-new M16 1/12th scale pan car bodyshell. The body was developed to offer great stability and traction without sacrificing corner speed and response. It is made from high-quality .040″ polycarbonate and includes a set of decals and window masks.
Coming from Pro-Line is the Toyota Tundra TRD true scale bodyshell for 1/10th short course trucks. It replicates the real truck and completely transforms the look of any SCT. As usual the body comes made from clear high-quality polycarbonate and it includes window masks and a comprehensive decal sheet. For a proper fit the body requires Pro-Line’s extended body mount kit.
Pro-Line’s popular Trifecta 1/8th polycarbonate rear wing is soon also available in a Lite variant. The second generation wing was on show at the recent IFMAR 1/8th Gas Buggy Worlds and it is both lighter and stronger thanks to an innovative bent wicker that eliminates the need for heavy add on pieces and hardware. The three cut lines on the back of the wing are actually bend lines that have been designed to allow for easy bending of the Lexan to create a solid 1-piece wicker. This makes the back of the wing super strong while still allowing for wing flex in the event of a crash, which prevents the wing from shattering. Just like the original Trifecta, the Lite features three dimples that hang down on each side of the wing creating the golf ball aerodynamic effect that reduces drag at high speeds without affecting down force. The wing also includes the centre fin that adds more side stability to the car and increases the strength of the wing around the mounting holes. The Trifecta Lite comes pre-cut, so there is just the wicker height to be decided before mounting it to the car.
