See: Leadfinger Racing

Leadfinger Racing have introduced the new A2.1 Tactic body for the Agama A319. First introduced in mid 2019, the A2.1 Tactic body design form Leadfinger Racing has proven it self on the track with a handful of different platforms. Fitment, performance and looks are key in every design, and every platform presents different challenges with each lay out. The Agama was no exception. Fuel tank location, and the position of throttle and brake bias linkages needed to be taken into consideration.

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.

Leadfinger Racing have introduced the new 2.0 A2.1 Tactic body for the Tekno RC NB48 2.0. The A2.1 body and front scoop is a one off design from the original Assassin body. The A2.1 not only delivers a great new look and tuning option, but is also designed to work with and fit the NB48 2.0. Three changes in total have been made to the new design. First is the addition of the cowl scoops on the side pods. Depending on the performance your looking for, these can be left alone to add to the overall down force of the car, or you can choose to drill them out for additional cooling. New for LFR is the addition of the roof fin. The advantage is more stability in high speed sections of the track, giving the NB48 2.0 a better and more precise feel throughout the car. The final upgrade is the addition of down force added to both of the rear side pods. This helps to keep the car planted and provide more level jumping. With the new A2.1 design from LFR, racers now have an option to better suit their tuning needs for a variety of track surfaces for their MBX8 nitro and electric buggies. The new A2.1 body for the Tekno RC NB48 2.0 is sold in clear, including window masks, stickers and ready for paint.

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.

Leadfinger Racing D819/E819 A2.1 Tactic body

See: Leadfinger Racing

Leadfinger Racing have introduced the new A2.1 Tactic body for the HB Racing D819 and E819. The A2.1 Tactic body is a one off design that delivers a tuning option in between the original LFR Assassin, designed for low grip surfaces and A2 Tactic bodies, designed for super high bite surfaces. The idea for the A2.1 body was spawned by Doug and Justin Fales when they were looking to gain more stability and slightly more down force to the existing A2 Tactic. The A2.1 Tactic body features cowl scoops on the side pods. Depending on the performance your looking for, these can be left alone to add to the overall down force of the car, or you can choose to drill them out for additional cooling. When opened up, the pipe side of the cowl pulls air directly past the block and manifold of the nitro motor. The A2.1 Tactic body sports also a fin on top of the roof. The advantage is more stability in high speed sections of the track and a more precise feel under hard cornering. The body features also an additional down force on both side pods and rear swoop. The new A2.1 body is available both in light weight or standard thickness and it comes in clear, including window masks, stickers and a front wing.
