It's very low through the center section with bumpouts to clear the pipe and throttle servo. It fits my Evolva and and 960 very well! Should be interesting to see how it performs.

Doesn't look the slightest bit like a Shadow Can-Am car. In fact it doesn't even look like a car. Why even bother?

May as well call it the "Black Wedge".

What a joke.

Looks like it has a front dam like a “snow shovel”, some nice negative dihedrals for down force over the wheels, and the spoiler for “sick” rear traction.
Work of art aerodynamics, a traction monster developed with Lamberto Collari.
The hardest part for me will be getting paint in them wings!

When will they be available or are they?

Well, it's black and has "UOP" sponsorship...

There's really only so much you can do to make these bodies similar to their full-size counterparts without compromising the handling qualities needed for our toy cars.
