FTW Racing Components today introduced its Blade and Vane bodies for Team Losi Racing’s new 22 1:10 2WD off-road buggy platform. Both Blade and Vane are designed to fit the 22 in both its mid- and rear-motor configurations, and each offers a unique aero package for the 22 racer while sporting the distinctive styling the world expects from FTW.
“As soon as we saw the 22, we recognized the design challenge presented by its narrow chassis,” said FTW co-founder John Riewe, “and instantly we saw it as an opportunity to develop a new design language that would complement the Losi’s revolutionary shape.” Co-founder Joshua Riewe added “Two designs emerged as winners in our R&D process, and rather than choose one to introduce, we elected to introduce them both together. Both offer truly unique aero packages coupled with dramatic styling elements.”
Blade and Vane are both packaged with two wings, window masks, and a decal sheet. Two sets of molded cut-lines facilitate trimming of both bodies to fit the 22 in both mid- and rear-motor configurations.
