Does that Zeppin use a transponder in the car itself? I was trying to avoid that, which is why I liked the Traxxas idea. Plus with the traxxas light you can have the starting line and finish line in...

Yeah I know, it's not really a functional wing, more or less just there for looks and to cover the ugly molded in "nubs" that all the old HPI bodies had. I didn't have a wing mounting kit either, I...
