ZooRacing Drakster 1/12th LMP body shell

ZooRacing has finally entered the highly competitive 1/12th racing class with the Drakster body shell. This LMP body shell received a groundbreaking new design to reach a new level of high performance. Ultra downforce and efficient airflow allow ultra-sharp cornering and direction changes. At the same time the rear is planted on the track. This creates an easy to drive and super fluent handling on all types of tracks. To create this fast body, ZooRacing re-developed all areas from the front to the rear. Starting with a true front splitter, narrow and aerodynamic efficient front wheelhouses and its optimised sleek air outtakes, followed by the advanced cab forward design and the efficient rear spoiler. The body is very low, according to the latest generation of 1:12 pan car designs. The whole surface of the Drakster is smooth and without any sharp corners, that could create unwanted turbulences keeping the body very efficient and stable in any racing situation.

The key design is the side section, which lifts the air alongside the body up to the top, to the rear and straight to the rear spoiler. It not only makes the car faster on straight lines, it also produces much more downforce, which lets your car drive on rails through the corners. Another invention is the innovative side dam design. The side dams have a vertical wing profile which improves the airflow of the air on top of the body towards the rear spoiler.

All of the aerodynamics are useless if the body deforms while driving, especially when using thin material for lightweight bodies. The Drakster has a very strong structure on key areas. The sides are structured and the top of the body combines aerodynamics and stiffness that allows ZooRacing to create a super lightweight and ultra strong 1:12 body, that stays in shape under all speeds. The Drakster follows the IFMAR and EFRA rules and already passed the EFRA homologation and will be on the list soon.
