Phat Bodies Vee 1/10th buggy wing

Phat Bodies have introduced their new Vee wing for 1/10th scale 2WD buggies such as the Team Associated B6 series and the Schumacher Cougar Laydown. Used by Martin Owen to win the 2019 South West regional off-road series the 165mm wide wing features a low profile rake at the rear section which gives sufficient rear downforce but its lower drag feature, when trimmed to recommended cut lines, ensures low rotation around the rear axle which in turn reduces front end lift common on most buggy wings. In addition the V design aids stability and stiffening ribs reduce flex giving a more consistent feel at higher speed. The wing is recommended for fast high-grip tracks and it is made from high quality 1mm Lexan polycarbonate with a lightweight 0.75mm version being available on request.
