Available soon from Italian company Bittydesign is the Black Hawk 1/10th scale short course bodyshell. Made from 1mm lexan material the body fits most of today’s short course trucks and it features an add-on rear fin that improves stability especially over jumps and in high speed corners. Air escape vents in the front fenders and the rear part of the body allow the air to stream through the body in order to reduce the “parachute” effect associated with many SC bodies. Included with the body come add-on number plates, hardware, window masks and a decal sheet.

After introducing a set of 3D printed 190mm touring car wings Josh Cyrul now have a third Vizon brand wing available in the form of the “High Velocity”. Manufactured using advanced 3D printing techniques the wing is strong enough to withstand some serious impacts meaning you can actually run it in competition. The special design, inspired by full scale race car bodywork, reduces drag and increases downforce to make the most out of today’s touring car bodies. Like the two previously released wings the part comes white and in a slightly grainy finish and it is highly recommended to paint the wing for flexibility and durability.
