Zoo Racing Drakster 12th Scale Body
With the DRAKSTER body shell, ZooRacing finally enters the high competitive 1:12 racing class. This LMP body shell received a groundbreaking new design to reach a new level of high performance.
Ultra downforce and efficient airflow allow ultra-sharp cornering and direction changes. At the same time the rear is planted on the track. This creates an easy to drive and super fluent handling on all types of tracks.
To create this fast body, ZooRacing re-developed all areas from the front to the rear. Starting with a true front splitter, narrow and aerodynamic efficient front wheelhouses and its optimized sleek air outtakes, followed by the advanced cab forward design and the efficient rear spoiler. The body is very low, according to the latest generation of 1:12 pan car designs.
The whole surface of the DRAKSTER is smooth and without any sharp corners, what could create unwanted turbulences. This keeps the body very efficient and stable in any racing situation.
The key design is the side section, which lifts the air alongside the body up to the top, to the rear and straight to the rear spoiler. It not only makes the car faster on straight lines, it also produces much more downforce, which lets your car drive on rails through the corners.
Another invention is the innovative side dam design. The side dams have a vertical wing profile. This design improves the airflow of the air on top of the body towards the rear spoiler.
But there are also other aspects for a body in the 1:12 class - a strong structure. All of the aerodynamic is useless, if the body deforms while driving. Especially when using thin material for lightweight bodies. The DRAKSTER has a very strong structure on key areas. The sides are structured and the top of the body combines aerodynamics and stiffness. This allows ZooRacing to create a super lightweight and ultra strong 1:12 body, that stays in shape under all speeds.
Last but not least the DRAKSTER has the ZooRacing signature wheel cutting lines and also lines for body mount holes to make body mounting a breeze.
The DRAKSTER follows the IFMAR and EFRA rules and already passed the EFRA homologation and will be on the list soon.
