Pro-Line 1/8th Trifecta lexan wing pack

Pro-Line 1/8th Trifecta lexan wing pack

Debuting at the recent IFMAR 1/8th Nitro World Championships in Italy with World Championship results, Pro-Line’s 1/8th Trifecta lexan wing is destined to give drivers another setup and fine-tuning option. From the mind of World Champion and Pro-Line team driver Ty Tessmann, the wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of the buggy and massively lowers the car’s centre of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions. The wing design follows the tradition set by the 1/10th buggy wing and features 3 strengthening ribs and 3 dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” under the wing for added down force and reduced high speed drag.

JConcepts RC10 pre-cut chassis protective film

JConcepts RC10 pre-cut chassis protective film

New from JConcepts comes a chassis protective film set for Team Associated’s RC10 vintage buggy. For years, drivers have hand-cut and custom fit their chassis with a clear material to protect the new chassis look and also providing a smooth or slick surface to decrease friction between chassis and dirt surfaces. JConcepts is now offering a pre-cut and graphically pleasing chassis protective sheet for the iconic RC10 chassis layout. The large footprint covers the complete chassis, nose-piece and extends up the rear of the chassis wrapping around the screws for the most coverage possible. With two pieces included per package, the durable and low-resistance material fits each chassis layout like a glove and adds protection and style in one easy package.
