Accel Fenders are 3-D printed, plastic fenders that are pre-shaped, and lightweight (lighter than balsa fenders), making it easy for you to get more speed and a cool look. Just lightly sand, glue them on with epoxy, and paint (or paint separately for a two-tone look).
The Accel Fenders are hollow with an access hole. So if desired, tungsten putty can be placed into the rear fenders to get more weight on a lightweight car.
Accel Fenders are lighter than pine or balsa fenders:
Accel Fender Pair: Front-1.1g, Rear-1.3g
Pine Fender Pair(1): Front-3.1g, Rear-3.8g
Balsa Fender Pair(1): Front-1.3g, Rear-2.1g
(1)Estimated weight assuming typical shaping.
As measured from the front tip to the center of the wheel arch:
Front: 1-1/8 inch
Rear: 1-3/8 inch
Aero Fender Instructions
To use the Accel Fenders:
- Lightly sand the fenders.
- If a two tone look is desired, paint the fenders separately from the car.
- Temporarily install a wheel/axle, position a fender to allow clearance for the wheel, then attach the fender with epoxy. Allow the epoxy to cure, then repeat for the other three fenders.
- If the fenders are not pre-painted, paint the car.
