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.
Italian company Mon-Tech have introduced their updated F15 bodyshell for 1/10th scale formula cars. Compared to the previous F15 the body sports redesigned side pods and a new rear section for optimised aerodynamics and improved downforce. The changes result in more stable cornering and overall upped performance. The body comes made from clear high-quality polycarbonate and it is available now.
Italian company Bittydesign have introduced their new Type-6R bodyshell for 1/10th scale formula pan cars. With the focus being set on both a well performing and aesthetically pleasant body the Type-6R offers exceptional overall balance, optimised airflow and a thoroughly shaped rear end that is low and lean while still offering plenty of room for the motor pod. Made from genuine 0.75mm Lexan material the body also comes with a comprehensive pre-cut decal sheet to make sure even single colour paint jobs can be a crown pleaser and also included is a white driver helmet and suitable mounting material. The body is already available through Bittydesign’s own web store and it will become available world-wide by end of October.
Xtreme Aerodymamics have expanded their range of pre-cut bodyshells for the Xray RX8 and Infinity cars. Laser-cut for the highest possible precision, the R18, R18 Flat and R18 Evo come ready to be painted and used, making it easier to swap between the different designs without losing precious time.
Coming from Avid are the new Triad titanium wing screws. A minimal design approach the screws already incorporate a wing button, resulting in an ultra-low weight of 0.34g each. They are machined from billet 6Al-4V titanium, feature a 12mm screw head and a 6mm long screw, making them ideal for both 1/10th scale off-road and on-road applications. The screws come in sets of two and in a silver polished or cool-looking oil slick finish.
Italian company Bittydesign have released first teaser images of their forthcoming, yet unnamed, new Formula bodyshell. With the cockpit and air intake section appearing to be unchanged compared to the current Type-6C body, the nose section above the front wing seems to be of a more angled and contoured design. The side pod and rear shape details remains hidden so far meaning formula class fans have to wait for the official presentation, scheduled for the 18th of October, for full details and images of Bittydesign’s latest on-road bodyshell.
Team Titan have introduced the new Blitz TS035 1/8th scale nitro on-road bodyshell. Building on the popular TS030 and TS040 the body offers the initial steering response and rear end stability of the TS030 combined with the mid corner and on-power steering of the TS040, making it a third tuning option for the dedicated racer. The body is moulded from high-quality polycarbonate and available in a super-tough 1.0mm variant and also as lightweight 0.8mm and super-lightweight 0.7mm body. All include a window mask, decal sheet and they sport pre-marked bodypost and engine head positions for ARC’s R8.0 car.
