Product 26R Big Wing Lightweight Body
Part Number RACEB13



26R Big Wing Lightweight Body made from original moulds, weight 44 Kg. This is without side bars which are rarely needed if racing a car with full cage.

This cage is from the original 26R pattern / mould. As such it comes with a standard exhaust tunnel and spare wheel bump. Whilst many modifications can be made this is the original early 26R spec.

Side bars with the extra bonding will add about 3.5Kg

A standard early elan body fully stripped weighs 78Kg.

If you are starting to build a competitive race elan, the lightest body shell is your biggest weight consideration giving a saving of 25.5Kg, a 32% saving in weight. This can help reduce costs later on in the build.

1) Side/Sill lattice strengthening,  Also Available in Aluminium for rust free and light weight.
