Zoo Racing ZR-0006-07 HellCat 1/10th TC Clear Bodyshell -190mm -Lightweight 0.7mm.
The Hellcat body shell for 190mm touring cars is ZooRacing’s fourth and latest touring car lid. The goal was to create a more efficient body with advanced aerodynamics that allow for aggressive cornering and yet a nailed rear end. This was achieved by using a long front section with splitter that sits 10mm further forward while a round-shaped outer line – when viewed from the top – ensures a smoother transition when changing directions as the air flows smoothly and constantly over the front splitter, fenders and grille.
In addition to the splitter the windshield and cabin also sit 10mm further forward with the whole section being shaped like a drop for maximised rear grip and stability thanks to optimised airflow towards the rear wing. Smooth transitions from the hood over the cabin towards the rear lid ensure optimised aerodynamic efficiency and thus less turbulences and drag, which leads to equal front-to-rear balance at both low and high speeds. In addition a low-profile trunk section with a slightly upwards bending trunk lid further improves downforce as does the curved shape, that optimises aerodynamics in combination with the included curved rear wing. The fine-tuned shape of the wing – it is curved in two dimensions, bending up- and rearwards – increases its overall surface for maximised rear traction. As usual the body is outfitted with several trick anti-tuck features such as structured side skirts which add to the overall aerodynamics and looks while greatly preventing body tucks without the need for additional reinforcements.
Other hot features include large wheel arches that allow the body to be placed up to 4mm to the front for increased steering reaction or up to 4mm to the back for increased rear stability – making it 8mm in total. All this can be done without having to fear tyre rubs or unsightly cut out wheel wells. The body, designed using the latest CAD techniques also features a 100mm grid for the rear body mounts, ensuring highly precise body placement and mounting.
