***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

LIBERTY HILL, TEXAS, November 26, 2012 – FTW Racing Components today added to its lineup of carbon fiber upgrades with the release of its wing spacer kits for Team Losi’s 8ight series of 1:8 off-road cars. Testing has shown performance gains can be realized by fine tuning the orientation of the wing. FTW’s mount mount spacer kit creates additional wing tuning options through the use of pairs of spacers which can be placed between the rear shock tower and wing mount. The kit include two pairs of 4mm-thick carbon fiber spacers, allowing the wing mount to be moved 4mm or 8mm away from the rear shock tower. Longer screws are supplied with the kit to facilitate proper fastening of the wing mount.

Fitment:

Team Losi 8ight 2.0 1:8 nitro buggy

Team Losi 8ight-E 2-0 1:8 electric buggy

Team Losi 8ight-T 2.0 1:8 nitro truggy

 

Availability:

FTW Racing Components are available at www.ftwrc.com and through FTW Authorized Resellers worldwide. Qualified retailers or distributors seeking FTW Authorized Reseller status should email sales@ftwrc.com.

After battle-testing for durability, yesterday we introduced this new FTW-grade shock tower for the Team Durango DEX210. It’s the perfect companion to our wildly popular carbon fiber steering rack for the DEX210. The official product description goes like this:

Eliminate the flex and weakness of the OEM piece with FTW’s rear shock tower for Durango’s DEX210. Airflow to the wing is also improved thanks to its lower profile center section. Fabricated in the USA from premium grade 4mm quasi-isotropic carbon fiber, this shock tower maintains all factory mounting and adjustment holes. Wing mount holes are countersunk for a cleaner look and replacement screws are included.

FTW’s rear shock tower for the DEX210 comes ready for installation, but we recommend sealing the edges with cyanoacrylate (CA) glue first.

It is available now from FTW Authorized Resellers (See a list here). If your favorite retailer doesn’t have it, DEMAND IT!
