Leadfinger NB48 2.0 Tactic A2.1 body

See: Leadfinger Racing

Leadfinger Racing have introduced the new Tactic A2.1 body for the Tekno RC NB48 2.0. First introduced in mid 2019, the A2.1 Tactic body design form LFR has proven it self on the track with a handful of different platforms. Fitment, performance and looks are key in every design. The Tekno cars have a different lay out for the fuel tank and throttle linkages then other platforms. However this presented a challenge for making a low profile and sleek design. Fortunately, LFR was able to combat these differences by widening the cab and adding to the size of the side pod scoops for clearance. To keep performance in check, additional down force was added to the rear of the side pods and rear center of the body as well as a shark fin on top the cab to provide more stability. To finish off the design the front scoop was added.
