FTW (For The Win), an American based body and accessories company, has announced today that they are closing their doors. The brand kicked off small several years ago, but quickly grew in popularity around the globe with their uniquely designed bodies, accessories, and racing components. Behind the brand is the Riewe siblings (Joshua, John, and Rachel), in which are always sharing a friendly smile and helping hand around the track. While it is sad to see the end of FTW, we sincerely wish the Riewe family the best on their next adventures and goals.
“We are infinitely grateful to everyone who encouraged us, bought our products, promoted our products, raced with us, and became a part of a million great memories; and in doing so were part of Team FTW. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Discarding the mundane clears new paths of inspiration, and enables things like Nanofox to happen. Stealth facets that define FTW style are fused with Grand Prix inspiration to cloak an all-business forward cab and impossibly low profile side pods with epic style. Like all FTW body shells, fitment is immaculate and most popular electronic suites are easily housed inside. The unique side pod profiles provide an ideally positioned air inlet opportunity. Nanofox fits Kyosho’s RB6 1:10 scale off-road buggy in both mid- and rear- motor configurations, and includes molded cut lines for each configuration. Nanofox is formed from clear .030” polycarbonate with protective outer film and includes two .040 Fulcrum wings, a decal sheet, and window masks.

After creating the first ever bodyshell tailor-made for a Tekno, Exabyte for V4 conversions, FTW were stoked to apply their style to Tekno’s fully proprietary EB48. Their design lab responded to the packaging challenges presented by this compact buggy with a fusillade of style and functionality. The fresh iteration of the Exabyte design language sports a pair of vertical stabilizers emerging from the sloping roofline while carefully sculpted lines sweep back from the front cooling inlets to enhance the sleek shape. For optimal cooling, the front inlets are complemented by an open rear body area.

Fearless combination of divergent elements is the modus operandi of FTW’s renegade design team. It comes as no surprise then that when handed a truggy and blank check , the result was Phoenix—pure performance packaged in sinister chopped-top styling. Convention-defying style integrates an industry-standard downforce profile for the one-two punch of form and function that is standard-issue FTW. Every chassis make is critically evaluated during the body design process in order to achieve performance beyond the acceptable. To reduce the tendency for body disintegration caused by the recessed front body mount location of the MBX6T, this Phoenix version is equipped with a kit that raises the front body mounts, allowing for a sleek and smooth hood area.
