Molded wings for 1/10 scale?

Does anyone know who manufactures molded wings for 1/10 scale offroad cars? I picked up a Schumacher buggy sometime ago that has one of these on it, and was wondering who, besides Yokomo, would still make these and why they aren't more popular...

i ask myself the same thing on why they are'nt more popular, i mean their far more rigid and dont tear and crack which as oppose to the lexan ones. Since they came into the racing scene ive not stopped using them since, i suppose the factor in why people dont like to use them is that it could be a bit on the heavier side which for me is really something i can live with considering the pro's with using one. Other manufacturer i know that make em for 1/10th scale is Kyosho. It is a little wider than the yokomo version but i like it.

Academy SB uses a molded wing. They even have it in different colors as well and I believe you can dye the plastic (never tried it though ).

Very durable. A pull and tug hear and there and its back in shape.

Try Fastrax via CML in the UK, or I believe Ballistic Buggy in the UK do them as well in a range of colours.

Kimbrough came out with some in the early '90s. It was the hot ticket for about 2 months until ppl realized having that much weight on the highest point of the car was not good for lap times. We went back to replacing a $2.00 wing once a month.

Replacing a 2.00 dollar wing would be great. Only one problem. They don't make wings for the B4 or XXX4 that I can buy without a body. That makes it into a 22.00 dollar wing really fast. I am looking into using a BRP wing for both of my cars.

I think AE had a molded plastic wing in the early 90's, it came in different colors as well. It had really big side fins, it looked like a Tie fighter from star wars.
