The German company ZooRacing has just released the Zoodiac GT body shell for 190mm touring cars. Designers used the latest CAD techniques and wanted to create a stylish yet efficient body with advanced aerodynamics while still offering a somewhat scale look to ensure the body meets all current GT/USGT class rules.
The Zoodiac 190mm body shell comes moulded from high-quality 0.7mm polycarbonate for a low weight of only 85g.
Going towards the rear of the car, the newly designed side pods not only add to the overall structure of the body, they also look cool and help to balance the overall downforce by offering a slight upwards sweep. The somewhat simple rear trunk lid design helps with undisturbed airflow towards the rear wing, that was designed to meet all GT class rules. The wing is moulded with two cut lines, a standard 10mm section and a taller “outlaw” marking for increased downforce.
Overall the body’s shape ensures the lowest possible centre of gravity for increased corner speeds especially on high-bite surfaces as well as great high straight-line top speed, even with low-power 17.5T motors – all while offering easy handling characteristics with very balanced front-to-rear grip.
Part of the package are also the revolutionary 2-step window masks in a new more flexible and stickier quality that will ensure window frames of Pro quality. In a first step all windows are masked using the Step 1 masks. After the painting of the body is completed, the masks will be removed and replaced by the slightly smaller Step 2 masks that leave the window frames exposed and ready to be painted in your favourite colour. The result is highly precise without the need to pre-cut or in-body-cut the window masks, ensuring greater satisfaction and less chances of creating predetermined breaking points. The body package is rounded out by high-quality wing mounting hardware and a highly detailed sticker sheet including grille, head and tail lights.
