Default Stronger 1/10 4WD Buggy Wing

Looking to replace the stock lexan wing on my XXX-4 with something stronger. I seem to be pretty hard on them and have wrecked a few already. I got a molded plastic one by Hot Racing over the weekend, and snapped a piece of it off on only my second run. I still think it'll hold up a bit longer than the lexan ones, but I'm still looking. Someone at the track today told me that the Academy SB wing is made of better material and would work well. Can anyone comment on that and give me a part #? Thanks!

When you cut it out just leave areas were you can make it stronger. And the less you crash the longer the wing will last.

Is it possible to make plastic one out of the 1/8 buggy wings?

Cheers

The part number for the academy wing is: 98SB 007
I have this wing and have absolutely beat it to death. You can also dye it with Rit clothing dye to match any scheme

The academy wing is probably your best bet durability wise. It does weight more but I haven't heard of any of the wings failing. Its just that heavy duty. Few tugs here and there and it usually goes back into shape.

Makes a nice pogo stick on the vehicle too!

The SB plastic wing is very tuff.

Kyosho makes a plastic wing but i am not sure what it was intended for. I picked one up at the local shop for my lazer and it was a perfect fit same size as stock, they come in blue, yellow, or white.

When you get a new wing, after it is painted cover it with drywall tape (the mesh looking stuff) and shoo goo on the bottom and corners. It makes it a lot more durable and stiffens it up a bit so it has better downforce.
