    160mm, or 6.3" wide. Adds a little weight, but looks beefy. This was the only plastic wing I could find anywhere.

    With a solid plastic wing you may end up breaking the wing mounts easier.With a lexan wing there is give.

    Okay if that were true my 8th scale buggy would be in pieces Razz

    The little buggies don't tend to crash violently ... they just flip and then slide on their roof/wing for a couple feet. That is what eats up the flimsy lexan.

    All depends on who makes the wing.Some 1/8th wings last for a while and some don't.Also 1/8th stronger wing mounts and they produce more down force. Razz

    Kevin,
    Are you purchasing one of these? Let me know, I'm interested in one I think. I hate the little lexan wing on my B4. I'd like to see one. There was a guy at Maximus a while back running a B4 or 22T with a solid wing and it looked great and it seemed to hold up when he got on the roof a couple of times.

    Kevin,

    I found this one on a couple of forums. Seems guys have good luck with this one. Strong but felxible enough not to break off the mounts.
