SpeedMerchant OR-18 1/18th scale body

SpeedMerchant OR-18 1/18th scale body

SpeedMerchant have released their new 1/18th scale pan car racing body, the OR-18. This is the same body that SpeedMerchant drivers used to sweep the 2011 & 2012 Mini Carpet On-Road Nationals held at R/C Madness in Enfield, CT. This project was designed from the beginning to bring all of their winning 12th scale racing knowledge to the 18th scale pan car class. The body features everything that is at the cutting edge of 12th scale body design, just slightly shrunk down, to take your 18th scale to the podium. The Aero characteristics include a dorsal fin for better straight line tracking, more rear down force to help calm down the insanely overpowered 18th scale brushless cars, as well as more side force and side bite to help produce much higher corner speeds.
