Tessmann talks ‘Trifecta’ lexan wing

 

Debuting at the IFMAR 1:8 Nitro World Championships in Italy with World Championship results, Pro-Line’s 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing has officially been released. From the mind of World Champion and Pro-Line Team Driver Ty Tessmann, the new 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of your buggy and massively lowers your cars center of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions.
