RC Maker TC & 1/12th anti-tuck stiffeners

Coming from RC Maker are their new anti-tuck body stiffeners for the Protoform Turismo, the ZooRacing range of bodies as well as 1/12th scale pan car lids. Starting with the touring car stiffeners, the new Lite V2 design introduces an even more compact, efficient way of integrating wing mounting and anti tuck components. This system prevents body tucks behind the rear wheel arch during racing, as well as inconsistencies on high speed tracks and in windy conditions, causing the bodyshell to vibrate. The new V2 Lite’s weigh in at only 5g for the pair, this lightweight strut only requires one additional M3 screw other than the wing mounting screw to secure the strut behind the wheel arch. The design also features extra material that sits in the vertical part of the wing strut. In crashes this section of the bodyshell can often crush or deform, and is unable to be repaired. The brace fixes this and prevents deformation in this area, ensuring the body lasts longer.

As for the 1/12th scale stiffeners, they prevent damage and easy cracking on the rear of the body, as well as excess vibration and flapping which occurs in the lightweight bodies while driving. Weighing in at only 0.75g each, the stiffeners will improve the car’s handling and body strength and they can be transferred between bodies and re-used over and over on any available body on the market.
