Mid-motor buggies are all the rage in competitive off-road racing and when compared to rear motor vehicles, have a slightly different rear wing placement. JConcepts has stepped up to offer a replacement Hi-Tension wing for drivers utilizing the mid-motor option and released a specific wing for the application. The more aft position of the mid-motor wing allows more tire clearance than normal; JConcepts has redesigned the side-dam to accommodate this position and added an additional feature. The flow-through feature is a step that is created from only allowing a portion of the wing to step-up for tire clearance. A small angular plane has a small surface which can be trimmed for a slot which air can pass during racing conditions.
In addition, the actual vertical side-dam now has a profiled shape near the bottom, tightening the section and also increasing the stability of the side-dams. The more rigid side-dams cut through the conditions while the sides provide plenty of clearance to the tires. The flow-through section helps maintain directional stability while the rear gurney provides the drag and force to the rear-end providing rear grip and healthy jumping characteristics. The overall width of the wing is 6.6” which falls directly in-between the 2 most popular JConcepts wings on the market and provides a great stretch across the rear-end of the vehicle while not being too restrictive. Although specifically designed for mid-motor applications, the new wing has shown great potential on 2wd rear motor vehicles as well as 4wd buggies.
The Hi-Tension wing has already pulled off a major victory in the hands of Ryan Maifield at the 2013 Fall Indoor Nationals in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Ryan was able to run the fastest time of the event in the 4wd modified class taking TQ and a wire to wire A-main victory. The Hi-Tension wing is compatible with all 1/10th off-road vehicles and marked specifically for the Team Associated B4 and B44 application.
