New from HPI and Hot Bodies:

McLaren F1 LM Body

The McLaren F1 LM is one of the highest performance supercars ever, boasting a rare balance of handling and speed. Powered by a 627 hp V12 engine, it set the record for the fastest production car in the world with a top speed of 240 mph and blistering acceleration. The styling is pure supercar… low and wide with aerodynamics tuned for stability at high speed. Only 106 McLaren F1 cars were built and only 5 of those were the high performance “LM” version that featured a large rear wing and special badging.

If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Mclaren F1 LM, grab this 200mm version designed to fit 1/10 scale touring cars. Included with the body is a pre-cut decal sheet that include window lines, headlights, grills, tail lights, official logos and much more, providing your touring car with a realistically finished product.

This body is clear so you can paint it in your favorite colors. It fits 200mm touring cars and can also be used on 190mm touring cars with the use of wide offset wheels. Overspray film is included, as well as vinyl window masks to make painting quick and simple. An instruction sheet is included for the decals, and the body has dimple marks for body post drill locations.

Beams 1/8 Buggy Tires

HB Beams tires are suitable for hard & dry off-road surfaces such as hard-packed clay and ‘blue groove’ high bite conditions. These tires also work great on indoor tracks.

With criss-cross bars crossing the tire and small bars in between they resemble an unfinished skyscraper in appearance. Scraping up traction where there is none.

Pink compound is our new extra soft compound for extra grip in low traction environments.
Red compound is soft for racing or low-traction surfaces.
White compound is medium, great for practice and all-around use.
