Today Protoform have announced their new 1:8 Gas power “Shadow” body, which fits 1:8 on Road. No photo yet, but will have 2 version, one is regular weight and one is light weight.
R/C racing’s top-level category continues to be the exotic 1:8 Scale Gas class and it’s popularity on every continent continues to grow. An emerging trend in recent years has been toward race bodies that are designed to offer increased downforce, in order to plant these powerful cars to the racing surface with increased traction.
IFMAR World Championship body manufacturer PROTOform is proud to release the all new High Downforce body – The Shadow. It’s based on the likeness of the legendary UOP Shadow that was one of the greatest CanAm cars of all time. The Shadow features a low profile body to lower the center of gravity and has been developed with the input of 7 time IFMAR World Champion 1:8 racer Lamberto Collari. This body is made to fit the latest chassis from Kyosho, Mugen, and Serpent. Once again it is available in lightweight as well as a regular weight versions. As usual it comes with an add-on spoiler/gurney extension, body stiffeners w/hardware, and protective film.
This body is sure to be the solution when it comes to hooking-up on a less than perfect track surface. The Shadow might just be the speed secret needed for stalking and beating the local track champion or hotshot racer!
