FTW Racing Components Night Fox And Tactic Bodies For The TLR 8ight 2.0



New from FTW Racing Components:

FTW Racing Components today released two new body options for TLR's 8ight 2.0—Night Fox and Tactic. Night Fox brings massive downforce cloaked in stealth, while Tactic frees up airflow on high-grip surfaces with bold supercar-inspired contours. Form and function have again been melded together in the dramatic and innovative ways expected from FTW's renegade design lab. Night Fox and Tactic are crafted to fit 8ight 2.0 perfectly in both gen 2 and gen 3 radio tray configurations.

“For our most highly-anticipated release, we're excited to introduce not one but two bodies for the 8ight 2.0,” said FTW co-founder John Riewe. Co-founder Joshua Riewe spoke about the options, explaining that “more than providing alternative style choices, the two bodies provide options for drivers seeking the optimum aerodynamic package for a particular track.”

FTW will continue to expand its lineup to include fitments for other popular platforms including truggy and short course.

Night Fox and Tactic are formed from clear .040” polycarbonate with protective film and fit Losi's 8ight 2.0 1:8 scale buggy. They come unpainted and include a decal sheet and window masks.

Is there really a full size vehicle that looks remotely close to this? I am actually sick to my stomach from looking at cab forward designs for buggys.

Get over it. Function will win over form in any race.

Oh please...What Function?....I guess another one is fooled buy the media.....There is absolutely NO difference in performance between cab-forward bodies and regular cab bodies....I've ran both of them before to test it out, and there was NO DIFFERENCE!.....It's just another way to sell more bodies, and for some people, they just like a different look.....To each his own and everyone can have their own opinion.....Mine just happens to be that I hate the cab-forward look, I think it's ugly.....But that's MY OPINION.....it's perfectly OK for someone else to say that they DO like them.....and that's fine....like I said -- To Each His Own!!!.....Just don't come up with this function garbage as a point......

OK, RANT OVER...........Had to say it....
