Penguin Custom Bodyshells have introduced two new 1/10th wings in the form of the Rockhopper and a vintage and retro wing for buggies such as the Schumacher Procat and Cougar. Firstly for competition use, the Rockhopper. The wing features a more traditional style wing that compliments the Penguin range of wings. The Rockhopper sits between the King and Emperor wings in terms of downforce. It’s made from 1mm Lexan and has multiple cut lines on the gurney. Secondly for vintage and retro racers a Procat or Cougar wing, with side plates, again made with 1mm Lexan.
