Central EM-3 1/10th touring shell

Central EM-3 1/10th touring shell

Having briefly covered the new EM-3 body from Central last month when it was still in its prototype phase, the Japanese company has now given us more detailed information on this new 200mm shell. Its design offers better stability and steering with improved front downforce, with a lower centre of gravity for reducing traction roll. Available in 0.6mm and 0.7mm thickness, it comes supplied with light decals, window mask and rear wing and will be available the end of May but is not yet EFRA homologated.
