The wing is designed specifically to inhibit constrained onpower understeer coming out of corners, while still providing enough downforce when required. The design is optimized to avoid interference of the rear tires and is made of a thick lexan that is extremely hard to crack under normal use. 2 identical wings provided per pack.

The major perk to being a sponsored driver is the discount. Our good friends at AsiaTees Hobbies are selling a plethora of RTR 1/10, 1/16, and 1/18 vehicles at 50% off…no sponsorship required! Why you ask? Each of these vehicles were taken out of their package for photo shoots and displays. In turn the lineup of HSP cars are marked down, yet still running strong and ready for action!

With a list of major events getting set to kickoff around the globe (including the IFMAR World Championships), top drivers have been doing extensive testing and practice in preparation for the various events. During one of these undercover test sessions, we just so happened to stumble upon something new hiding in plain sight. What you see here is a Kyosho MP9 equipped with a very unique body, one that we have yet see until now. Upon further investigation, it appears as though the body is a little something new from our good friends at LFR (Leadfinger Racing). Leadfinger Racing is a Florida based company, known for their skid plates, option parts, and pit accessories. While this is the first we have seen of this body, we highly doubt it will be the last. LFR has done “one off” projects for their drivers in the past, but the precision, professional details, and extensive time spent to create a body such as this leads us to believe this is far more than a single special order project, and is in fact the first of many LFR bodies to come.
