Default Difficult to see it because is clear.

But... like the details that are after the engine and the INS-BOX, this could make it much aerodinamic because the air flows around the engine and the INS-BOX too.

The nice is that bodies are starting to take into account that in a big part of the world, we use intake silencers and work to make the bodies more adapted to it.

Too bad that this box seems to be made only for Mugen INS-BOX, Snake and other brands that are bigger will have problems fitting it.

BTW: Is the third body I see that carries 'fangs' on the front end (look at the things on what should be the driving lights). What is their function and who does them? anyone?

SARD, I think you like the Mitsubishi EVO cars!!, "VORTEX"
I think that the "fangs" are use to channel better the air on the high speed section. the more laminated the air flow is, you will have more downforce and less drag.
my 2 cents.

Hope we atrt getting this types of bodies for 200mm.

Actually, the original Snake developed INS-BOX which is also copied by Novarossi, is a bit big if you compare it to the Mugen INS-BOX.... (don't know why Nova didn't copy the Mugen box....)
I don't have it yet, but the Mugen INS-BOX might just be on my Snake cars in the future......

Yep, the Serpent one is a big brick (I still use from many years ago, when the unique was that INS-BOX). In the short future (maybe after summer) all my bodies will be too much worn and with the new batch of bodies I'll get a Mugen INS-BOX, just because is smaller.

BTW: You scared me M7H, is the first time we agree on somewhat and see you telling nice things about a Mugen piece. LOL!!! (j/k).

Gee I'm really hoping that someone tossed the "Z's" in as a joke, seems to me the Frisbee was just a different body on a Lola 332?? chassis in the second gen (i.e. wimpy 5 litre) Can - am, managed to run down a photo off the net, let's see if I can import it
