Bittydesign Seven20 GT12 body shell

Bittydesign from Italy have introduced a new version of the Seven20 GT body shell for the GT12 class. This project was born from the desire to offer to the enthusiast a body shell that could best combine maximum performance together with an all new style never seen before in this class. The body combines maximum performance with true supercar looks, making reference to a British GT3 supercar. The lowered front nose generates excellent steering while the lowered cab and the sculptured shape of the sides stabilise the airflow that conveys into the large rear wing, making the body easy to drive thanks to balanced front and rear downforce. The lid is moulded from high-quality 0.75mm Lexan polycarbonate, it comes clear, including window masks and a precut decal sheet. A suitable rear wing and wing mounting hardware rounds out the package.

JConcepts Team Associated DR10 wheelie bar

JConcepts has designed a new wheelie bar for the Team Associated DR10 which delivers on looks, versatility and performance. A successful design starts with a solid mounting location to resist twist and flex. The aluminium rear wheelie bar mount designed to fit into place provides solid placement. The anodised black with silver chamfer highlighting give the amazing look but more importantly replaces a stock plastic item which shores up a huge issue with the stock wheelie bar assembly. Backing into the design, attaching steel ball-ends to the assembly works wonders when connected to genuine Team Associated ball-cups threaded into aluminium tubes, steel Fin turnbuckles and secured with 3mm jam nuts to hold adjustment and stability.
