Default 1/8 wings

What wings do you guys prefer, my std 808 wing died, someone recomended the JConcepts wing, which I have now, then someone else said there no good.
Ive had the proline wing in the past, had varied opinions on them as well.

What have you found the best for performance, durability etc.

Serpent wings are really good. They offer good stability straight line and are very strong. Jconcepts one piece wing is very tough and last forever but I feel there are better options for downforce and stability. I just started running the new Upgrade vortex wing this past weekend. So far so good but no idea on it's durability yet.

Hmmmm, although I like the way my Serpent wings make my buggy and truggy handle, I do not find them to be durable enough. They always break at the webbing after only 1 or 2 race days. I found the Jconcepts wings in 10th scale, and there bodies are very durable, so I think I will give there 1/8th wing try to see if it holds up longer then the Serpent. Being a one piece design with little webbing it should be tough.

I had my PROLINE wing for 4 months and still fine and really looks great in the track, the design stands out!

The jq wing on the xray 808 looks very nice better than the std xray wing. The jq wing has a good price and bolts up without drilling holes.

JQ wing is awesome looking, cheap and strong. The funny thing is that its design is the result of a moulding error

Durango wing is great looking too
