1/10 buggy wing idea

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
If any of you are like me you must be ripping apart the cheap thin wing that comes with the buggy but has any one tried using this one on it

85197 Molded Wing Set (HPI)

It only cost me $10 and you get 2 different wings

I'm running with the one on the left and my buggy seems to do great with it and the best thing about it is that itís flexible. Iím beating the crap out of it and its holding its shape really well. A friend of my also tried it and he was loving it. I don't think there is anything in the racing rules that said you can't do this and if you are ever in Durham to try out the new track being built (PM me if you want to know more about this track) I will let you try it

I agree. I did similar with a 3racing wing from thetoyz for both my 10th scales. the lexan wings fall apart so easy

the wing from the jammin crt .5 works really well as well... i would add wing mounts to your spares list though with any of these wings... the mounts were designed with lexan wings in mind...

i 2nd that. a 10th scale wing that doesn't break leads to constantly changing broken wing mounts.

Use the Kyosho Blast wing. The lexan is thicker and stronger than any other wing out there.

so far my wing mounts are fine, alittle bent but fine. you can try boiling your wing mounts to make them a bit more flexable
