The Fastback Bodyshell and Aero-tune wing set for the Carisma GTB (and LC EMB-1)
Many people will have seen Thumbs Designs founder Craig Harris testing all sorts of aero packages and this is what Craig now runs as his default Aero Pack.
Craig says “The Fastback shell gives the best balance of aero grip and smooth transitions through corners, combine this with the Aero-tune wing set and you have a winning combination”
“I have found that the more aggressively styled body shells on the market do produce noticeably more grip, especially through high speed sweeping corners but when you need turn into a corner quickly the grip seems to fall off the car making it very unpredictable”
The Fastback shell is designed to maximise Aero grip and minimise Aero fall off thus creating a balanced, smooth feel to the handling.
The Aero-tune wing set is closely modelled on the Carisma GTB stock wing and comes complete with the optional tuning veins that can be fitted to the centre.
This beautifully formed wing is 165mm wide and made of durable 1mm clear Polycarbonate with an overspray film.
The tuning veins increase stability of the car at high speed . When you use the Tuning veins the strength to the mounting bracket area of the wing is doubled making the wing incredibly durable.
