MantisWorx F1 front wing!!!

i am very happy with this one it came out better than expected and actually looks pretty darn good!

the lower is made of 1.7mm dry carbon, braces are made of billet CNC'd delrin and the upper is made of styrene so you can paint it. i am gonna try and source out some aluminum screws . the delrin corners stick out slightly so the carbon wont stick in to the wall. it only uses 1 screw to mount to the chassis and is higher than any other bumper so there is no worry about it scraping the ground when cornering and there is plenty of room for the wheels to fully turn without trimming. its the last bumper you will ever need!

they will be ready for sale in a week and i dont plan on making a whole lot of them at the same time so if you preorder before friday you will be on the first batch. they are time consuming. price is 30.00 and will include all screws and you have an option of carbon wings are styrene (paintable) its the same price.









i will start another thread about the wheel covers!!

This is a must have!!! It looks so good, and durable. Wheel protection, as well as good styling. You could also use a lexan wing if you want to lighten the front end even more.

Marcus, angle the wing and mounts downward a bit, it should still be effective and perhaps a little more functional!

Minimum weigh in at events is 200g, so that is the weight that I try to keep the cars Looks like your right on target in the weight of these parts. . .

CT, i definately agree with that but id like to do some testing because to do that takes some trickery with the machine to make the post angle. temporarily i think either making a lexan "winglet" pc or adding some washers under the back of the wings to see if there is a difference.

brian, i dont see how it will fail at the back of the plate there is a "V" that also keeps it secure. if for some reason it will not i can easily make a different bottom plate with more mounting screws but i dont think it will be needed.

your right I forgot about the "V" at the back. I'm looking forward to testing them out.

well i finally got to test the car and have been driving it for about an hour now, here are the results on the parts:
setup
k20r/k30cut fronts
mr03 lowdown yelow fronts
shock tower cut completely off (more on that later)
pn33t
RR/qtec diff 53t
MWX 2-3 towers
MWX front bumper
MWX wheel covers
MWX wing mount
MWX carbon rear wing
MWX double k shock system
MWX prototype "T" plate
track conditions: just layed the track down in my garage not very much grip at all and its dirty/bumpy, my stock car wont even hookup!

ok first off the bumper is FANTASTIC!! if you hit anything with it the car just brushes it off, i noticed this especially going down the longest straight where normally if you even touch the wall the car digs in and spins around,this doesnt happen anymore. car looks like a hammer head goin aorund the track!!

wheel covers: they are going to need some grind work the upper corner will dig in . im about to smooth out the corner and try again

"T" plate i dont really have anything to compare to except that this track is in the worst possible shape for an F1 especially with a mod motor. and after making some adjustments to the rear springs (pn mr03 greens, reds were too soft) i am now able to power out of turns with out fear of the back coming around and i expect this to get better with an optimal tire setup (k30 are too much, even with super hard springs in the front)

wing and wing mount: all i can say is that once i got the balance closer i was able to full throttle around the sweeper and it almost seemd that it had more rear traction as i had to let off for the next turn ie higher speed=higher grip. but i have nothing to compare to, it does look good though!!

Front towers: the car has tremendous amounts of steering in all situations and the front is VERY stiff in fact i dont have a stiffer spring to put on it. of course some of this is because of hte tires having too much grip but before i cut the grooves off it was undriveable. so i cant wait to try out some PN 15/20's. on a side note i installed some stock kyosho kingpins and they were longer than the ones that were on the car. what this did is allow some play between the tower bar and the clip and what this did is almost acted like a progressive set up! when you slowly press the front down the arm will flex a little first and then the spring! in theory that should allow the car to handle bumps without bouncing around and it does seem to act this way.

overall i like the car its becoming easy to drive and i still have lots of things to adjust over the next day or two, i cant wait to get feedback from you guys! your gonna LOVE the bumper!
