Bitty Design prototype Losi 8ight shell

Bitty Design prototype Losi 8ight shell

Bitty Design were in touch to tell us about their new prototype Losi 8ight body shell. The new EU style shell features a fin along the top along with more pronounced channel over the back of the car to improve the downforce in high speed turns. Also thanks to a new air scoop situated along the side of the cockpit, the throttle and brake linkages don’t rub of the inside of the shell when in operation. The body in the photos is currently only a prototype, with the final version due to receive some final tweaks before it becomes available at the end of April, when it can be purchased from BD directly or through their network of distributors.
