FTW Diamondback Short Course Truck Body

Sep 05, 2012 1 Comment by

FTW Racing Components issued an authoritative response to the overwhelming demand for a short course body built with pure FTW DNA. With typical disregard for the status quo, FTW’s hybrid style/engineering section set forth tocreate a sleek short course body with a menacing visage and a propensity for discarding air during flight. The usual months of research and track testing ensued. Soon forty-hour work weeks sounded like a vacation. Coffee and energy drinks obliterated the project’s budget.

Diamondback is the result. Innovation in design creates the illusion of a lean, chopped cab profile. A high-rise cowl induction hood was integrated with a provision for a huge cutout to shed underhood air. The raked windshield flows into a lowered center section of the roof, terminating in a gaping cutout provision strategically recessed into the back of the cab to further mitigate the parachute effect. Additional cutout provisions in the bed area are surrounded by a roll cage. LED-effect taillight decals finish up the rear, completing the image that will become familiar to the competition.

Diamondback fits most 1:10 short course trucks including Losi’s SCTE and XXX-SCT, Team Associated’s SC10 and SC104x4, and Traxxas’ Slash and Slash 4×4. Diamondback is formed from premium clear .040” polycarbonate. It comes unpainted and includes two decal sheets and window masks.
