West Coast R/C Works BCE 1/12th body support

Coming from West Coast R/C Works is their new Black Carpet Edition front body support for most 1/12th scale pan car kits. The part was designed to prevent body scrub of 1/12th pan cars in high speed corners and on the straightway an issue that is generated by the air going over the body and bending the nose down until it touches the surface. The outcome of this is a reduced top and corner speed, and it even can lift the front wheels off the track. This is where the body support kicks in as it is designed to tackle this problem by supporting the nose of the body. It will reduce the body scrub to a bare minimum and allows to mount the body lower as before. The 1/12 body support is available in two versions, as 35 degree or 60 degree variant, and 3-D-printed from nylon. In 35-degree and 60-degree. The 35-degree version is designed for a body with a low angled nose like the AMR and the 60-degree version is made to support a body with a short nose like the BMR. The part is available in black and white from West Coast R/C Works’ Shapeways store and selected dealerships.
