have just tried out the 3 racing rear wing and front wing, on asphalt it has made quite a difference to the handling of the car it seems a little more planted. I certainly noticed the difference with the brushless set up it my F1 now

Thanks, just built a F104 McLaren kit, but the pro diff, heavy pivot post, split upper deck , 3racing wing set and damper and now I'll have to get the pro body.

Any wing is better than the Pro wings on the rear, The Pro wing is to low to do much.

you're better off sticking with the McLaren or the Ferrari body there's nothing special about the body that comes with the Pro kit - its just a non-descript modern F1 body

plus if you got with the Pro kit's body, you need to get the front wing from the Pro Kit - the McLaren has a high-rise front nose that won't work with the kit body, at least not without some modification

I don't know if you want the lightweight pro body, which I think come with the black kit, but there is a lightweight Ferrari. They are supposed to be discontinued, but they can be found on line.
