Would be nice to see new ideas on the bodyshell artwork as we approach 2010.
They are a classic element to R/C paint, and imo look far better than some of the recently used tribal designs. Besides, Jimmy's drips are DIALED!

In the add the pic. do not show many differances.
What type of conditions are they suited for.
Thanks.
The Hi-Flow body has space for three cutouts in front of the cab to allow for more airflow inside the body. Also, the upswept sidepods are meant to make the appear more aggressive.

That was part of the idea, but its hard to really get a feel on tracks.

Has anyone realt tested between the two, and is their a real felt differance?
In my short time in the sport (Offroad Dirt) bodies realy dont do much.

The rear wings are another story, I have felt the differance betwee the
6.5'' Vwing and the 7" straight HD. the 7 defintely gives more rear traction, but the 6.5V seams to jump better, the car stays flater in the air.
I'm in the process of experminting with the 7" Vwing, hopping to get the best of bowth worlds.
The side pods have been raised slightly (~4mm) on the Hi-Flow for more speed control clearence.

Thanks All for the great info. I've been wanting to try one but did not want to get one if there was no big differance, the scoopless that I'm runnungright now looks so sweet But a little more room under the lid is a plus for the spedo!!
cant wait to get it and lay some paint.

Hey Andy, I would think that there is a growing market for a variety of 1/8th scale bodies with larger air scoops for electric conversion. Any plans for E-bodies for the more popular brands?

Andy, since the advent of Lipos has anyone revisited the original Bj4, batteries down the side layout? Might be worth it since lipo is so much lighter?
