The Reedy Race is a prestigious event with the best teams and drivers in attendance. Because of this, companies bring every kind of advantage they can muster in order to give their drivers a chance at the win. This usually mean specific products that have gone through rigorous testing and are usually at the final stage before hitting the market. Let’s take a look at what’s going on in the pits.
Pro-Line is at the event and have a couple of new tuning options for racers. Two items include a front wing and a new rear wing. As you can see, the front wing mounts a bit lower than current ones on the market and this helps to minimize the damage they normally seen in a crash.

Pro-Line is also premiering their new Predator body for the Team Associated B44.3. Drivers like Rick Howart are running the new body with favorable feedback.
MIP is in the pits showing their newest outdrive system. Designed to work with buggies like the Team Associated B5M, the outdrives use an aluminum and steel “Bi-Metal” system to take advantage of aluminum’s light weight with the durability of steel.
JConcepts has two new front wings designed specifically for the TLR 22 3.0. Available in two sizes, these wings are molded to provide two wings when cut down.

JConcepts is also debuting a new car stand and it has graphics to celebrate the Reedy Race. Production will come with a different decal sheet.
