Created by the same designers as the immensely popular Central Lola 1/8th scale body shell, the EFRA approved East Civic 1/10th 200mm body shell was first shown in Japan last November and is now being sold through Serpent. This new shell sports 2 ribs on either side of the car to increase stiffness to this area while at the same time allowing the shell to be made from very lightweight materials. Other details include ribs on the bonnet that channel the air over the lowered windscreen and back to the rear wing. The Civic, which has been extensively tested by Central RC, provides the user with very responsive, high grip and well-balanced handling characteristics.
