If you are breaking a lot of wing try boiling the wing for 10 minutes, it will soften up the plastic.




intresting point about how, aftermarket wings affect the jumping and handling compared to the stock wings .

dint know that.

Default wings

It's just one of those things that people buy it because it looks good and don't even know it can affect the cars handling.

thats why you buy a body that matches your wing.

JC body - JC wing
Proline body - Proline wing

the buggy itself dont matter, its the body. I personally like the Proline bodies, they look great and are durable (same as JC I think, b/c I used to have a JC) And, I think its hard to find body wraps for JC bodies.....

I have ran the hd wing on buggy and truggy. Much more durable than losi wings. On my truggy had to reduce angle on my D8T to make it feel good of jumps.

what do you guys think, should i stick with the stock wing? does this wing give any improvements. im driving a mugen mbx6
These wings do make a difference. When these wings first came out a few years back I bought one simply because I thought they looked better. After putting it on my Kyosho buggy at the time I was surprised at the difference. Right off the bat I noticed a push in buggy that wasnt there before. I dont know if its from weight or if these wings do provide more down force even at slow speeds. I drive an mbx6 just like yourself and still to this day the wing nets the same difference. I can put on my stock mugen wing and the car tends to feel more free in the rear and a little faster in the turns. I carry both wings with me and use them as a tuning option.

Tc5man, I tried one when I had a truggy and honestly I did not like it because to me it took away some corner speed. I run on an indoor tight track mostly so a loss in corner speed is very critical. I have also noticed that alot of the pro drivers dont always use the HD wings either. Maybe for the same reason? I dont know, but thats what I noticed.

I took off my wing on the truggy and put the stock one on because i like driftin the truggy around corners and it flys better in the air.The 8ight-t 2.0 flys level right out of the box.
