Bittydesign have introduced the new Vision body for the Mugen Seiki MBX8 Eco. Tested for several months on different types of surfaces and layouts, the Vision body combine a stunning look together with performance at the top of the class. Thanks to the valuable collaboration with the World Champion Robert Batlle, Bittydesign have been able to realize improvements that have allowed them to optimize the initial project making the model easier to drive and more balanced, the comparison on the track with the stock ‘kit body’ showed superior performances. The advanced cab has been designed to increase cornering but at the same time, thanks to the soft rear slide behind the roof, the body is perfectly balanced in its shape giving the model a particularly sinuous and slender line. Vision is a body with a futuristic look that enhances the performance of the model, several hours of development and research have been dedicated to the sides that show a unique and original design of its kind and that are perfectly connected with the rear side flaps that guarantee the correct load aerodynamically optimized also thanks to the showy central flap that guarantees the correct air flow to the wing. The body is designed to be installed on the Mugen MBX8 Eco chassis (as well the World Edition) but can also be mounted on the previous model MBX7/7R Eco.
