With typical disregard for the status quo, FTW’s hybrid style/engineering section set forth to create a sleek short course body with a menacing visage and a propensity for discarding air during flight. The usual months of research and track testing ensued. Soon forty-hour work weeks sounded like a vacation. Coffee and energy drinks obliterated the project’s budget. Diamondback is the result. Innovation in design creates the illusion of a lean, chopped cab profile. A high-rise cowl induction hood was integrated with a provision for a huge cutout to shed underhood air. The raked windshield flows into a lowered center section of the roof, terminating in a gaping cutout provision strategically recessed into the back of the cab to further mitigate the parachute effect. Additional cutout provisions in the bed area are surrounded by a roll cage. LED-effect taillight decals finish up the rear, completing the image that will become familiar to the competition.

Diamondback fits most 1:10 short course trucks including Losi’s SCTE and XXX-SCT, Team Associated’s SC10 and SC104x4, and Traxxas’ Slash and Slash 4×4. Diamondback is formed from premium clear .040” polycarbonate. It comes unpainted and includes two decal sheets and window masks.

Purposed for altering air like its namesake, Vane is our laboratory’s response to the challenge of creating a body with enhanced aerodynamics for the 22 platform. Vane attacks the track with shocking design elements and aerodynamic advantages that wowed our test pilots. Vane fits Team Losi Racing’s 22 1:10 scale off-road buggy in both mid- and rear- motor configurations, and includes molded cut lines for each configuration. Vane is formed from clear .030” polycarbonate with protective outer film. It comes in clear and includes two wings, a decal sheet, and window masks

Our laboratories are averse to tradition, so when tasked with creating a traditional rear- cab body they were stumped for about 3 seconds. They then set to work incorporating a dramatic stabilizer on the roof of a body bent along a series of long sweeping curves. Blade fits Team Losi Racing’s 22 1:10 scale off-road buggy in both mid- and rear- motor configurations, and includes molded cut lines for each configuration.
