Xray XB2 1.5mm Lexan rear wing

Coming from Xray and made for the XB2 2WD buggy is an extra strong rear wing made from genuine Lexan material. The thicker 1.5mm polycarbonate material makes for increased stability, durability and lifespan of the wing and it can also improve traction due to more efficient aerodynamics, but at the same time steering might be slightly reduced. The wing fits the XB2 and all buggies with comparable wing mounts.

Pro-Line 1/10th buggy front wings

Debuted at the 2016 Reedy Race of Champions, Pro-Line now officially introduce their all-new 1/10th buggy front wing and mount. The wing is placed in front of the shock tower and sits as low as possible for the cleanest air flow and lowest possible centre of gravity. Using the wing will keeping the buggy’s front end planted coming out of the corners, without doing the negative things that can come from a high centre of gravity wing while also pretty much retaining the overall look of the vehicle. The Pro-Line front wing sets include two wings in each package and each one has three different wing cut lines to adjust the amount of front downforce to what works best for the car and track conditions. The wing set is available for today’s most popular 2WD buggies inclining the Yokomo YZ-2, the Kyosho RB6, the TLR22 3.0 and the Team Associated B5M and they include tailor-made, digitally manufactured plastic wing mounts as well as mounting hardware.

JConcepts TLR22 3.0 Aero front wings

New from JConcepts and made for the TLR22 3.0 buggy are the Aero front wings. Mounted above the front shock tower on the TLR series of vehicles, the front wing mounts in “clean air” and is quite easy to trim, use and test without sacrificing all important track time. Available in two widths, the driver can choose either the “narrow” for a lighter feel or “wide” for heavier down force. The front wing features a high-attack design with trim-able rear gurney options and a radical, edgy design which compliments the Finnisher and Silencer body design. The leading centre section of the wing has been formed into a unique V-shape to perfectly outline the front shock tower geometry and cut lines are included for easy trimming while triple wing mount dimples are included for a bolt-on fit to the popular TLR 22 series of vehicles.

JConcepts TLR22 3.0 Aero rear wing

JConcepts TLR22 3.0 Aero rear wing

JConcepts Aero rear wing is now also available in a variant for the TLR22 3.0 buggy. The new Aero wing has intriguing details, a leading edge that drops below the mounting point that acts in a scooping manner and the centre “V channel” flows off the wing matching the rear tower geometry. The mounting area drops the wing at just the correct height and position while the side-dams feature large openings for tyre clearance and expansion. An innovative forward gurney option gives drivers an adjustment that previously hasn’t been available in the class and clipped rear corners help minimise flex breakage. The joint wing assembly includes two wing pieces in each package for added value.
