Questions?? JConcepts Punisher wing on a truggy

Has anyone used this wing on a truggy instead of a buggy? And if so how well did it work?

It didn't last the race day on the back of a Mugen 6t. It cracked. I bought it right when it was released from JC paid $30 shipped and it went in the garbage after 1 main.

I've been running them for a while and have the same one on my Truggy from the Nitro Challenge in Az. this year.

So far they are pretty good, haven't cracked one like Frank did. It's getting pretty beat up now though after the Labor Day race I was at, but is still holding up. It might be because I have four screws holding it down vs. two like the 6T did. I dunno. All things will break if it's hit hard enough or if the weather is too cold. It is plastic afterall. Could also be that JC made a running change to their plastics after the wings first came out. Either way it's worth a try.

I have had one on my MBX-6T since they came out and have had no issues with it at all. I really like the tunability of it with the different side dams, and it really does make a difference when you change them.

ive been looking at this wing does it really make a diffrence on the rc8t truggy that comes with the jconcepts high downforce wing ?

Tel : hey have you ever tried moving the wing back on the rc8t all you do is. Adjust the top wing mount, and move it back from the stock setting which is foward i notice that it will jump more leveled and take the push out also
