Designed in cooperation with Italian and UK top drivers is Bittydesign’s new Zefirus Lexan rear wing for 1/8th off-road buggies and trucks. Light of weight thanks to its design and the polycarbonate material used, the wing helps to lower the car’s centre of gravity without compromising aerodynamics. The design of the wing allows to fine-tune the downforce created by adding or modifying the included gurney flap and by using or leaving away the optional side dams. By opening airflow vents the wing is further tuneable and in its lightest configuration 50 percent lighter than a standard plastic wing. Made in Italy and coming made from clear and high-quality Lexan material the wing set includes the gurney flap, side dams, mounting hardware, and a decal sheet. Furthermore the wing is also available pre-painted in black, white and fluorescent yellow.
