Ultimate Racing MBX8 upper arm & front wings

From Ultimate Racing for the Mugen MBX8 are some new aerodynamic attachments. First up is this clear lexan front upper arm wing, an aero option that attaches directly to the front upper arms. This tuning option helps to increase front end grip and traction at higher speeds, while helping to improve the front/rear balance in the jumps. These wings are feather light and include lightweight machined mounting brackets that create a strong and lightweight mount for installation. The front wing replaces the front nose-cone on the vehicle with a front wing design that has shown to produce enhanced steering characteristics. The front scoop includes 2 pieces per package, so a driver has enough to outfit their nitro and e-buggy with the same package. This wing provides increased feel and sensitivity in the larger sweeping sections and helped jumping attitude in the tricky jump sections.
