He then never looked back and was able to win the race one lap ahead of Jörg Miikael Tiit and Rob Mamers.
FTW introduce the Diamondback short course body shell for most of today’s 1/10th 2WD and 4WD SC trucks.

The raked wind shield flows into a lowered center section of the roof, terminating in a gaping cutout provision strategically recessed into the back of the cab to further mitigate the parachute effect. Additional cut-out provisions in the bed area are surrounded by a roll cage. The body comes unpainted and includes two decal sheets and window masks.
