Try the Schumacher wings. For lexan they are pretty durable. The price is pretty good and the best part is they come precut! Also they come in black, clear, and white

i personally like the JC xb4, 6.5 wing.
Even tho i run for JC, it feels the closest to the stock wing.

True I like the jc wings as well. Just want that 2mm thick xray wing. Should last a long time.

I'm waiting on a 2mm xray wing too, but the JC wings are pretty good. They last far longer if you shoegoo another layer of lexan in the indented area where it attaches to the wing mount. Also makes it far less likely to break a wing mount.

I happen to have a ton of flat lexan pieces from the cutout wheel areas of touring car shells. A little snip off the sides and they fit perfect in that indent area. Tremendously increases the lifespan of any wing.

I ran JC's all summer - went thnrough two wings, not bad all in all. I received my Xray 1.5mm wing pack yesterday from A Main. These wings are much thicker than the original kit wings.

just saw the new XB8 2015 today. All I got to say is WOW... Really nice buggy and see they tried something new with the steering of the car. I love team Mugen but if I were to ever leave it would be for this. now I cant wait to see the xb4 2015 Edition even more!!!

Quick question. Running Tyler Viks Reedy Race setup which was great when it was cool, now that it is hotter then hell here, it is not as good. Seems like the rear end is way too soft causing the car to break traction and swapping ends. It could be as simple as too tight a slipper clutch, and too new tires. But it's darting around like its hot a mind if it's own lol.. Any suggestions? Setup is perfect when the weather is cooperating. Inside the track is reaching 90 plus degrees, and the track is very inconsistent. Track can go from low bite to hi bite back to low bite in a matter of half way through a 5 minute qualifier.
