Schumacher have introduced the new Contact Light wheels for the 1/8th nitro circuit class. Developed with Contact’s high level drivers, the new “Light” range see the company pushing the boundaries of wheel material development. The improvement in plastics makes the rims 20 percent lighter, yet still with good strength, just under that of Contact’s carbon rim. Significant benefits include faster acceleration, better traction and increased cornering speeds. The new wheels are easily recognisable with their grey color 5-spoke rim and they are available as 32 shore and 35 shore front as well as 35 shore and 37 shore rear variants beginning of March.
