BlackArt Toyota TS030 & Lola B10 12th scale bodies

U.S. BlackArt distributors CRC introduce the new Toyota TS030 and Lola B10 1/12th scale bodyshells. Starting with the Toyota, the pink and green body in above image, the shell is designed to deliver increase downforce for high speed tracks while the centre spline makes for added stability. The body already proved its performance by winning at the recent European Championships in Italy. Also new is the Lola B10, the red and black body, that offers a bit less downforce making it perfectly suited for slower tracks, tight and twitchy circuits or Stock class racing. Both bodies are made from genuine GE 0.5mm Lexan and come clear.
