ZooRacing Hellcat 190mm touring car body shell

ZooRacing from Germany is busy adding more groundbreaking 190mm touring car body shells to their line-up with the latest creation being the Hellcat. The goal was to create a more efficient body with advanced aerodynamics that allow for aggressive cornering and yet a nailed rear end. This was achieved by using a long front section with splitter that sits 10mm further forward while a round-shaped outer line ensures a smoother transition when changing directions as the air flows smoothly and constantly over the front splitter, fenders and grille. In addition to the splitter the windshield and cabin also sit 10mm further forward with the whole section being shaped like a drop for maximised rear grip and stability thanks to optimised airflow towards the rear wing. Smooth transitions from the hood over the cabin towards the rear lid ensure optimised aerodynamic efficiency and thus less turbulences and drag, which leads to equal front-to-rear balance at both low and high speeds.

In addition a low-profile trunk section with a slightly upwards bending trunk lid further improves downforce as does the curved shape, that optimises aerodynamics in combination with the included curved rear wing. The fine-tuned shape of the wing – it is curved in two dimensions, bending up- and rearwards – increases its overall surface for maximised rear traction. According to ZooRacing the body positions between the Preopard and the DogsBollox in terms of aggressiveness, giving racers another tuning option. As usual the body, made of high-quality polycarbonate, is outfitted with several trick anti-tuck features such as structured side skirts which add to the overall aerodynamics and looks while greatly preventing body tucks without the need for additional reinforcements. Other features include ZooRacing standards such as large wheel arches for easy back and forth placing of the body, rear body mounting grids, and 2-step window masks. The body is available in standard and lightweight variants and it also includes a detailed decal sheet and lightweight wing mounting hardware.
