Default Looking for a special antenna

The one I am looking for one that fits under the body. It comes up about 3 inches and bends into to a triangle. Its used alot in ovals. Who makes it?

Why not just make your own? Take a piece of scrap lexan from a body, servo tape it to your upper deck and wind the antenna around the lexan. It does the job and doesn't cost anything.

I could do that but the one I am looking for is what I really want. We ran it alot back in the day on our superspeedway cars. Thanks for the input though.

I have seen those antennas and I believe Parma made them. You can also bend a regular antenna into this shape with a littel heat and patience. Seen that done may times b4 also.

TRC makes the triangle antenna mount. You use a studdy antenna tube and then mount the TRC triangle on that and wrap your antenna around. I thought it was great when I had it in my TC-3. Stormer Hobbies or Tower shoul have it. You might have to search for Trinity since they own TRC, or just have your LHS call Trinity directly to order or for a part number.

For some reason I thought it was from Hyperdrive but i havent been able to find it any where. I will search TRC/Trinty/??? to find it. I want to run it on our TC-3 so I dont have to cut another whole.

Are you talking about the Kose fiberglass antenna? I run one on one of my F1 cars and it worls great. It seems to be lightweight enough so it doesn't have an impact on performance and has an aluminum tip, so it doesn't get all ground up when you roll. You just wind the antenna wire around it and slide an o-ring over the top to hold the wire in place.
