New Stock Car Body From Ralph Thorne Racing













The bar for original, creative race winning slot car bodies has now been raised once again...

Ralph Thorne Racing LLC. presents the newest member of our Titan family, The Titan XL. 

The first modern and original 4 1/2" 1/24 Stock Car body in quite awhile. 

The Titan XL is based off of our highly successful 4" body, and the newly approved Nascar Whelen series bodies in 1:1 racing. It features more pronounced fender flares that look great with the front wheels under it, a longer cowl for a more realistic look, and what we think is the lowest and most aerodynamic front end and green house area. 

You'll notice it has more of a traditional front bumper to allow for front wheel clearance and to accommodate most rule sets which require front bumpers. The body will measure just under 3.250" wide. Once again we've added a nice cut line to assist in body trimming and mounting. 

This body truly blends a modern and realistic race car appearance with superior race winning on-track performance.
