Dale, don't get me wrong I really like the Shadow it just pushes just a little too much for me. Can't wait to try the Frizzbee.

I got the chance to test one this past weekend, i realy liked the body, it had good balance plenty of steering, and was stable on the track, and it had good rear traction as well.The engine temps were consitent with other bodys ive run, no change. I could realy feel a difference with the speed of the car down the straights. I would recomend trying one when you can!

The last list of homologation is out and the body is not in you will need to wait until a new list is out.
Remember that this year is WC 1/8 onroad, and all the parts to be used like exhaust, bodies, insbox must be homologated.
I think it will not be able to be used on the WC nether on the European.

Have fun

Hey, what's up with this English or Canadian stuff, eh?

Are these fins ( marked circles ) have purpose in aerodynamics ?

Why not smooth out the fins ?
