HB Racing IFMAR Legal 1/8 Rear Wings

HB Racing IFMAR Legal 1/8 Rear Wings

From HB Racing:
The HB Racing molded nylon rear wings are very close to a same weight as lexan wing, with the added durability of molded nylon. Large side dams and 2 inner plates add stability, and a wicker bill helps tune downforce to track conditions. The new wicker bill design eliminates the need for nuts for extra weight savings.

Also included are four pairs of dimples molded into the bottom of the wing to make mounting simple when using the popular HB one-piece wing mounts, and the dimples give racers 4 fore/aft mounting position choices. These wings are IFMAR legal (40mm width x 50mm height square area for car identification numbers) and the side dams can be easily trimmed to meet ROAR rules.

Available in black, yellow, and white.

Compatible with most 1/8 scale buggies and truggies.

The 25 Most Important RC Cars of All Time

In the long history of the radio control car hobby, many models have resonated as popular, innovative, influential, successful, or any combination thereof. To choose just 25 as “The Most Important Cars of All Time” is not an easy task, considering the 40-plus years of car development that encompasses the RC hobby. Some of the cars here are slam dunks, others may be arguable, and some you might find downright dubious.  However, we can all agree on this much: there are some truly legendary models on the pages ahead, and we’re lucky to enjoy the incredible depth of passion, intelligence, and creativity that the many manufacturers of RC continue to deliver year in and year out. Is this a great hobby or what?
