Default RC18T rear wing

Anyone have any suggestions for a rear wing for an RC18T, not a fan of the 18b rear wing but the Vendetta looks pretty good.

the 'detta wing looks nice on there, its the same width as the 18b wing as well, and the mounting holes are the same.

Thanks. Do you know what parts I need ie: can the vendetta mounts be retro-fitted to the rear RC18T shock mounts? then obviously I need the wing!

I think mitchell somehow used the 18b mounts and put a vendetta wing on it. And then he also somehow used body clips instead of screws??

Ah! when I looked the associated website it shows conversions from 18t to 18b etc etc but I think it says to use different rear shock towers to be able to attach the wing mount, I might just buy one and see if I can retrofit. This is one of the reasons I bought an RC18 kit - the parts are reasonable in price (even buying from overseas!)

Yes you are going to have to retro fit the wing. Unless you buy a RC18B rear shock tower, wing mount, and a Vendetta wing. Then figure out some way to mount the RC18T body. Some Challenge.

3racing also makes a plastic wing in white and black. Though I think its more for Mini Infernos than what it says is 1/18th vehicles as per its really wide.

I like these plastic wings over lexan as they last longer.
